John, my love, September 23, 2009 was the first time I met you, the day my life would change forever. Meeting you was the greatest blessing of my life. Seeing you walk on the bus, sit in the seat in front of me then look back and smile, was so delightful and perfect. As you and I began to get to know one another, you went home, asked your dad for money to buy me roses and a card for my birthday, which is something I thought was so kind and precious, a memory I will never forget. As the months past, I began to love you more and more. The way you treated me and others was so polite and kind-hearted. You are the most amazing person, always putting others before yourself, loving your family more than anything or anyone. I remember John would always talk to me about wanting to help his dad on the weekends with work and babysitting his 3 nieces .One day he called me after he got off the bus and said he was watching them, made one of the little girls a sandwich and she looked at him and threw it on the floor, we laughed so hard. For exactly 9 years, I have thought of him, my first kiss, first love, example of what a pure heart looks like. He loved spending time with his brother Michael and cousin Dylan. When we were on the phone, Mikey would be listening to the Gorrilaz album and John would throw a pillow at him to turn it down ! It seemed like every time we would speak on the phone, he would be up to some new adventure with Dylan, he said they were best friends and brothers. His father was always his biggest role model, he told me how much he looked up to him and wanted to make him proud. John would talk about his mother, how beautiful and caring she was, the light of his life. John D. Romano’s heart is as big as the moon and opened his heart to all of those whom deserved it. What an honor to have met and loved such a miracle of a man. I am so proud of the strength and determination he has always shown. I will always have hope and faith in his spirit. I love you. Tiffany.
