On Monday, April 15, 2013, John, Karen, Donny, Matt & Jacob Reis and Andy & Carolyn Johnson were enjoying a great day at the Boston Marathon. They were at the finish line waiting to see their daughter, Nicole and friends, Sarah & Erin cross. Just prior to their crossing, the unimaginable happened. An explosion that has forever changed our lives.
Day 200....Congratulations to all our Boston friends, Red Sox World Champs!! I bet you could hear us cheering all the way from California. Now we hope to keep the winning ways going for our son in law Matt's New England Revolution who start the playoffs Saturday against Kansas City at Gillette, GO REVS. All's well here, John got another new brace today and the jury's still out but I hope it exceeds expectation this time. We're really missing our Boston grandsons especially today on Halloween, we wish we were there to share this fun holiday with them. John continues at PT 3 times a week and we try to get in 9 holes of golf once a week. We're so proud of Nicole,Carolyn and Sarah who completed half marathons this month and our nephew Scotty who finished his first half marathon last week in preparation for Boston 2014 which he will be running in John's honor and you can be assured, we'll be there!!! All and all, we continue to get stronger as life returns to our pre April 2013 normal. We send our love and support to all our fellow survivors, we miss you and send our wishes for your continued recovery. Xoxo K
