“I don’t think I knew what love was until I met you.
All my life I searched for it – everywhere.
But you are exactly what God said love is.
And you show that love to me.”
– Linda to Ron
Our dear Ron had gotten cancer.
And words cannot describe how it felt when we took those steps and saw him on that hospital bed.
I remember when I first saw his beaming sunshine smile. We had photographed so many people before – but Ron’s smile? You can’t forget it. And that’s just how Ron was.
Linda and Ron had a fairy tale love story and wedding day. Truly.
But what was even more magical; and, infinitely more beautiful
Was being there to capture these moments in their lives.
We are incredibly honored and blessed to share with you…
the most beautiful love story with the most tearful and inspiring message from Ron below:
In loving memory of Ron
June 10, 1965-April 2, 2014
The close of the film plays an unrehearsed live recording of Linda singing “House of the Lord” to Ron by his hospital bedside.
Ron, ’til we meet again in heaven, thank you for your friendship, your vulnerability, your truth, and your inspiration. We love you and Linda and know you are quite at home with a smile bigger than ever as you stand in God’s presence. We expect to be greeted with one your awesome smiles and look forward to the day we get to have a big hug from you again, dear friend. You are dearly missed but we know now there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.
To the Nakada family, thank you for the blessing of sharing your story and your love with us. Praying for God’s continued comfort, peace, joy and love. You’ve moved us all and we count ourselves blessed to have known you.
With our love,
The Parks (and baby Knightly)
