    John Ramsey described JonBenet as "extremely outgoing" and said he regrets allowing her to participate in beauty pageants. "I think about these things now and it makes me cringe. We were so naive. I now believe with all my heart that it's not a good idea to put your child on public display," he said. JonBenet is pictured here in an undated photo, riding on the back of a car for a local parade.

This photo was taken almost exactly two years prior to JonBenet's death.

    "When I found her it was a rush of relief," he told ABC's Juju Chang. "And then of course within moments, I realized that she probably was dead. But she was back in my arms." JonBenet was named after her father, whose full name is John Bennett Ramsey. Ramsey says JonBenet was proud to be the only girl in her class named for her daddy. She's shown in this undated photo with John at his office.

    John Ramsey said JonBenet was excited to go to school. She is shown here in this undated photo on her first day of school with her bookbag and an apple for her teacher. Boulder police first suspected John and his wife Patsy of killing their daughter. It was more than a decade later, in 2008, that the district attorney's office cleared JonBenet's family in her 1996 slaying and issued an apology.
