I loved the beginning of this episode with KJ and I! How precious is he? He knew I was stressed so he leans over and hugs and kisses me. Doesn't get any better than that. He is truly such a gentle soul.
OK lets get right into it! My uncle John has been a HUGE part of my life since I was very little, and sadly a few years back he was VERY sick, in fact I was told he wouldn't make it through the night. So I packed my girls and drove like a bat outta hell to South Carolina to see him, I kicked everyone out of the ICU room he was in and had a heart to heart with him. He wasn't really coherent however when I said to him, "You lied to me and said you wouldn't leave me on this planet without a perfect husband and father for my girls." But then the tears streamed down his face! It was turning point for him, his blood pressure increased, he quickly turned the corner and thankfully by the grace of God he is still with us. So I knew when I did get married that he too would walk me down the aisle with my dad. I asked my dad if he would mind, and of course my dad understood. I was so excited to ask my uncle, I could hardly contain myself!
Coy Wire played in the NFL for 9 years and is now a motivational speaker and has a book out called Change Your Mind. He is an amazing person with such positive energy! When Kroy and I first met and started dating, there weren't a whole lot of people that supported us, but Coy always did. I knew when Kroy asked me to marry him that Coy would be the perfect person for us to officiate our marriage.
