    Dec. 5, 1977 I remember the joy of your birth. You were truly loved. As you grew up, it was your Witt, and your artistic abilities that I will always remember. Your willingness to help anyone. When life got in the way, and you took some crazy roads, you were still loved. You lived your life as you wanted. Answered to no one. You were still loved. When your struggles went deep and dark, you were still loved. I know you felt this love. And when some of us had to shut that door, you were still loved. Today and forever I will always hear your voice, “ I love you Aunt Debbie”. You will forever be loved Ryan, my nephew, may you Rest In Peace ❤️
    Love Aunt Debbie and Uncle Gary

    My heart aches in sorrow knowing your not here anymore. My dear brother Ryan,  I will miss you so much.
    You were a beautiful soul, you loved deeply and you were a protector to anyone you met.
    You always had an amusing sense of humour and a creative mind that kids and everyone loved about you. You were passionate about your love for the earth and for all of yours and God’s animals. You liked to do things your way, which did harden you, but you still kept your enormous generous and kind thoughtful heart. You had many friends and partners in your short life; people liked you and your ways. You were good to everyone you loved. You were honest and caring. You were you, marching to own your beat. You were a strong fighter for what you believed in. So many times in life, I watched you be brave, loyal and never give up. I never knew how you could handle so much. You were wild and free yet always looking for an escape. I know this all too well.
    I always dreaded this day would come but I never wanted it too…now it is sadly here and there are no choices anymore other then to say our heart breaking goodbyes. You were so young. It’s sad and unsettling. My heart aches for you and our family.
    I just hope that now you can feel safe and loved. God will protect you.
    I will never stop loving you and I will always cherish all of our wonderful and fun memories growing up together.  You made me laugh so easily and we were authentic together. You brought so many smiles to Taylor; we have missed you these past couple of years.
    You will always be my big brother. The Stick, Nipper, May-Day, Ry-Guy, I could only imagine how many other nicknames you had. Know you are loved.
    I loved you and I’m sorry.
    Trauma & addiction has taken so much from us.
    Rest in peace my brother.
    Your little sister,
    Tash ♥️
