My heart is broken for you, I have been in disbelief ever since I found out, as I am sure you are. You and Ryan had such a loving bond, I know how much you will miss him. He was sweet and kind. I remember visiting you (with Sandy) and he had the patience to sit and visit with us and listen to all of our silliness, such a sweetheart ! I cannot even express how broken my heart is for you, Rich, Adam, and the rest of the family. Love, Debbie and Harry

I'm so sorry to hear about Ryan's passing. I knew Ryan as a frequent customer at Walgreens. He would stop in on his way to or from a rough job at Standard Beverage. He was such a kind soul and I always looked forward to seeing him. His passing will be a huge loss for all the lives that he touched.

Karla, my sincere condolences to you, Rich and the entire family. Your beautiful tribute to Ryan in words and pictures begins the long journey of mourning and then trying to recover from the grief. May warm and loving memories carry you through these difficult times. And may the peace of God which passes all understanding keep your mind and soul and heart....


Karla, I am so terribly sorry to hear this devastating news. Sending you and your beautiful family all the love in the world. What a precious and remarkable tribute to such a beautiful soul. Every single photo seems to capture all your beautiful words that described him and the way he lived his life. I am hugging you so tight right now.

Jeannie McGehee

Karla, Rich and family... have tried to find the correct words to soften your heartache but cannot... but the words that did come to mind as I looked at these pictures were- love, kindness, laughter, son, uncle, peace, joy, a life filled to the brim in his short years, and memories for your family.. I hope you can find some peace and comfort in the coming days... many long distance hugs to your family...

Cindy Perdue

I only know you and your family through your blog which I have followed for many years. I have not checked in in a while and could hardly believe what I read this morning. Ryan was born the same year as our oldest child and losing him or any of our children is just unimaginable. My heart is filled with sadness and my eyes are filled with tears knowing of the heartbreaking loss of your beautiful son. My heart felt condolences to each of you.


Hola. Lamento que su vida haya sido corta y haya terminado abruptamente, lo siento. Es muy doloroso, aún en la distancia y sin conoceros personalmente, ver la zarpa de la tragedia en vuestro precio entorno, es aterrador.
Para ti tengo el abrazo más grande que seas capaz de imaginar o desear.


... ver la zarpa de la tragedia en vuestro precioso entorno.

Salió mal antes la frase que escribí, por eso la envío de nuevo.
