First meeting you, we automatically clicked. For a short time of dating, you always made sure to find a way to start with me in the morning cause you knew I didn't have my coffee yet. So you would turn my music up and jam with me while also always trying to tickle me while driving cause you said I still have to get on your nerves just a little bit to start the morning, but your hand would following along right after in mind while driving. My daughter Scarlett absolutely loved you and I loved how you interacted with her. You are In heaven Now, but You said Your peace With me Just a Few days Before you passed. I'm forever thankful that you came across my life because you made me feel so much, but you left me with this note on my fridge that I look at everyday till this day. ”Never let your dreams interfere with your dreams.” Ryan I will forever keep that close to my heart. Fly high sweet angel❤️

Ryan, I only remember you as a little boy. You were spunky and gave your daddy a run for his money. You grew into a handsome man, father, son, friend! I’m your daddy’s cousin, I know he loves you dearly. Never gone, never forgotten , just see you later. God bless your family to be at peace( even though it makes no sense) ! ❤️❤️
