John Holmes: The Man

John Curtis Holmes: August 8th 1944 – March 13th 1988:

In short, I don’t really care about his drug abuse, the adult industry or the mass murders.  None of that really affected my relationship with him.  That’s not who I knew.  I miss him, and the kindness and bond between a scared, abused little boy and a man no one understood was a human being.”  Sean Amerson - John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches

“He’s always there, but the effect is I’ve made it my life to protect him and I realize that sometimes I need to let go, but then he will come back and remind me or something will happen out of the blue.  He’s always there.”  Laurie Holmes – John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches
