I didn't know Ryan long, but I often heard of him and his great accomplishments in his short life. I think when someone passes so young we must look at their quality of life and not their quantity of life. We can't explain why God lets things happen, and we'll never figure out the true reason, but we must trust and have faith. And what I know about Ryan is that he'll be watching all his family, friends and those so special in his life from this day forward. He has moved to a place where there is no pain, no suffering, no sickness, no disabilities and no sadness, and we should all take comfort in that. As I looked through the many photos today I'm reminded what a happy young man he was. He chose to see the best in people and in life, and he made the most out of his. I know when those close to him think of him, although they are sad, they smile because he brought happiness to all of them. And isn't that a great gift we can all give others? Everyone who thinks of him will remember the great things he meant to them, the fantastic times they spent with him and the positive inspiration he always was. God bless Ryan and his family and friends he left behind, for some day we will all see him again and once again smile and laugh and catch up on old times. God Bless!

Ryan, you will never be far from our thoughts. We will always remember watching you grow up into a fine young man. We will always have fond memories of our movie nights when we would have a bowl of ice cream topped with loads of whip cream . We will forever miss you.
We love you,

Ryan, I didn't know you very well, however your everyday actions tell a lot about your character. I can't seem to remember seeing you without joy written all across your face. You're someone who's ambitions were never out of reach, regardless of how far they were amongst the stars. A part of me looked up to you.

I can't think of a single time I ever saw Ryan without a smile on his face here at work...he is the most cheerful person I have ever met. He would come to my desk for a piece of candy and ALWAYS said "I'm sorry...I just want one".... I always laughed and told him that's what the candy is there for and that he could take more than one because we both knew good and well he would be back for more. We recently had our office Christmas party/gift exchange....I will never forget his laughter as he watched everyone open funny "gag" gifts. I speak confidently when I say ALL of Ryan's ABC Family will miss Ryan dearly. What a tremendous loss for us all.

Deepest Sympathy,

I will miss you everyday of my life, I remember so well when you were born, watched you grow up and become a man. You worked hard to become who you are today. When you were in grammar school you made me a turkey out of a brown paper bag, painted construction paper in different colors for the tail. It is a little battered after all these years but it has always had a special place on my table every Thanksgiving. Now, it takes on new meaning. I love you Ryan, will miss you terribly but I believe we will meet again someday. Go rest high on that mountain. Aunt Janece
