The Romaine Family
Hannah and I were both raised in Christian homes where we heard and accepted the gospel of Jesus Christ at young ages. The similarities of our upbringing do not stop there though. The military has been a big part of both of our lives. I have a long family history of military service dating back to the Civil War, and Hannah is the daughter of a Navy pilot. Of course we are different, but some interests we share include love of the outdoors, exercising, playing games, and meeting people. However, it was a God given passion for serving the Lord and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ that ultimately drew us together, creating a very deep bond.
On March 4, 2023, Ian Charles Romaine left his earthly body to live forevermore in the presence of his greatest hero, his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ian passed away after an 11-month battle with one of the most aggressive terminal brain cancers that afflict children today, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). However, cancer did not for one second define his identity. He was first and foremost a child of God and a follower of Jesus, having placed his personal faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ when he was 6 years old, and he declared it before the church and unto the world through his public baptism when he was 7.
