Shelly: “One Foot Forward has given us proof that Greyson’s life will forever be remembered and have value to not only us. Because of him, children will have the opportunity to participate in sports and most importantly have fun. Greyson was our son but now we know he will leave a legacy within our community. We hope to see that the One Foot Forward fund continues to grow and to see the positive impact the distributed funds will have by putting smiles on children’s faces because of Greyson. Greyson taught us what it's like to be strong, to live in the moment, to be better parents and most importantly he has taught us that life is short. I love John so much, his passion for giving back, always wanting to help people and provide opportunities to those less fortunate. Sports has had such a huge impact on his life and one of his life goals is to help others experience that same impact. He always puts others first, especially his family. John has one of the biggest hearts and because of him, he has made me a better person today.
John: “I have been thinking about what it is that I love about you. First thing is you are an amazing mother. I also like the fact that you keep the whole household intact. Yes, I am not the cleanest person but you push to keep everything in line. You even help me look good in public by picking out new clothes for me to wear. You are super courageous and inspiring for others. The words you put together always touch everyone around us. Although we hurt a lot privately you have inspired many people to take one foot forward when facing a loss. We have been through a lot together and usually, that leads to destroyed relationships. In our case, I feel like I have been drawn to you even more. I am proud to call you my wife and thankful I am with you. Together we can enjoy watching K, S, and Z4 grow. You have been giving them many amazing qualities that will allow them to be even better people than we are.”
