  1. Such a sad loss for so many. Ryan was a respectful, kind gentleman. I will miss him .

  2. Love you, Ryan.
    I know your mind is finally at rest. I wish something would have been done. I wish the doctors at the mayo clinic and any other medical center would have done their jobs, because there would have been a different outcome.
    Watch over Crystal and Josh, and your sister, and anyone else who cared about and loved you without question or without stipulations. You were a kind soul and you will be greatly missed.
    Until we meet again,

  5. I cannot explain in words how much this man meant to me. When we met it would of appeared i was helping him in a dark time but he helped me. The loyalty, love and compassion that came from him is so genuine and true. Ryan buddy you helped me more then anyone ever had in this life and now I’m in recovery and can stand firmly on my feet. I could of never done this without you. Today my heart is heavy with the loss of you. I love you dearly my friend.

  6. He was my best friend, my partner, my lover and the best boyfriend I could ever ask for. He was loyal, trustworthy and loved Josh and i with all he had in him. I couldn’t of asked for anything more. I will never know love like the love that this man showed us everyday until his last day. Taken away too soon but left behind a better woman and a even better mother. I had a part of Ryan that no one else has had the pleasure of knowing although many of you have been able to meet and got to know this gentle, compassionate and loving man that he became. Only in that, do I find my peace. So many things left unsaid and so many things left undone for now. He’s with me everyday and everywhere I go. I love you Ryan
