Ryder always reminded me of my Micah. Even though we never met he had a special place in my heart. I know that Micah greeted him at heavens gate and they are running and playing like the little boys they never got to be here on earth.

My heart is breaking for this family cause I know all to well the journey that they are on. Know you are in my prayers and I am here with a shoulder and an ear if you need me.
