  2. I am at a loss for words other than to say please accept our deepest condolences. Ryan was always a joy to be around. We will miss him, terribly.

  3. Words can’t explain the pain my husband and I feel. We were just hanging out with him at our house a week or so ago and now this. I will never understand why he was taken from us on Earth so early but I do know he made a HUGE impact on us all. Such a caring and loving person he was. I was always there for him with relationship advice when he would come to me as he always did the same. Out of all of my husbands friends he was the only one I ever really clicked with. All the memories that go back until we were 16 years old. It is crazy how this does not seem real. We will miss Ryan terribly, you had an amazing son who was working hard to make sure he found happiness in life. Such tragic news, prayers to you all.

  10. To Ryan’s parents,
    I dont know if you will remember me because it has been many years, but I was one of Ryan’s teachers when he went to Dale Sikes Day School. My mother was Ms. Fox, the cook and I was Ms. Tammy. I just found out about Ryan and I am so sorry for your loss. My heart just broke. He was a special boy to my mother and myself. From the pictures he grew into a very handsome man who loved life. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
