John and Amy’s love story began as Amy locked her keys inside her car. Obviously, a locksmith was her only answer. John responded to Amy’s call, and while he thought she was beautiful, he never let her know. John left that call feeling he had missed the chance to get to know her. Thankfully, fate intervened, and Amy locked her keys in her car once again. On this service call, John talked with her about how difficult it was to be alone on Valentine’s Day, and he tried his best to charm her. Amy did not recognize John’s attempts at flirting with her. Amy reassured him that he would be okay, as she too knew the hardship of being alone during this time of year. Amy, who sold Home Interior, did not have any money for the unlock service that day, but offered John a Home Interior candle which he gladly accepted as payment. Feeling sad he had missed another opportunity with Amy, John took the advice of his brother-in-law and called her. Amy rejected John’s request for a date, but eventually, with the help of Amy’s sister, Amy’s mind was changed. After only their first date, John told his mom he had found “the one.” John and Amy were married a short time later in June of 2007. John lit Amy’s candle every year on their wedding anniversary. John said that candle was the spark that ignited their love.
