Perth Australia, 2007
JOHN Holmes spent his life saving others, giving people second chances, nothing though could save John and Nancy on this night, a night where nothing was different, they'd just spent the evening at one of Perths finest steakhouse. Sure John had had a few to drink, he knew when enough was enough.
They were the parents of Ryan and Brie. Well Ryan was Johns and you can guess the rest. A third attempt at marriage for the both of them and before this night everything was going swimmingly.
John was a CEO of a pharmaceutical firm, one of the good guys, he actually pushed to make many medications readily available and Nancy a politician now more stay at home mum. Everything about them screamed money, their mercedes left the city skyline behind them.
They had a babysitter for the night, the first night they had together, alone in over two years. The kids at this time were in their early teens.
The headlights were caught in the corner of Nancys eyes. She did not stand a chance, it turns out a man in his fourtys fell asleep behind the wheel. John fought as hard as he could the next few days in intensive care, Johns mother was the one to call it, turning of his life support not before pledging to take care of the children.
