I remember a sweet little boy who loved life and everyone in it. I cannot imagine that has changed much since I last saw Ryan. Except that he is not so little and I am so proud of him for serving our country in the corps. His family has touched my life immeasurably so that when I learned of Ryan's passing from death into everlasting life, it has caused me to weep for all of them who are left here. Your pain and sorrow is felt by many. You all have my prayers as you learn to transition into life here without Ryan. No words I can put here will ever take his place or will take away your pain. Just know that he was loved and you are all loved so very much. ~ Becky
