“You guys are my Grand Canyon”

Jessie Heavenrich | Grand Canyon

My dad was a river guide on the Colorado River for 11 years and when he met my mom down there, his love for her and the river grew deeper than the canyon itself. “You guys are my Grand Canyon” is what he told my brother, sister and I. The river is the reason for my families existence. It brought two beautiful souls together that I can proudly call my parents. Thank you dad and mom for loving us endlessly and helping guide us through the rapids of life.
