Ms. Shoop. No words can express my profound sadness at your loss. I cant begin to fathom your feelings right now. Just the other day I was in your classroom exclaiming at how very handsome your sons were. We spoke about the dog. Your faith will keep you strong. I'll be praying too. God answers prayers.

At such a big school with so many people, I feel so fortunate that I met Shoop at the beginning of my freshman year. In such a big new place, we always had each other from the very beginning. Shoop made sure there was never a dull moment. His humor and positive attitude made such an impact on my daily life and I need him with me. He was my best friend at school and I will miss him more than anything.

My brother introduced me to Shoop last Spring after telling me all about him since their Freshman year at Clemson. He told me of how fun, kind, and generous Ryan was and how I had to meet him. I am so lucky to have met Shoop and to have gotten so close with him. He was just as special as my brother told me and more. He was the best friend two guys could have asked for and we will miss him greatly.

I am devastated to hear of Ryan’s passing. I fondly remember Ryan’s smile especially when he ever so quietly would crack a joke only to be heard by those sitting close to him in class. I also knew all was well as I heard his classmates call out “Shoop!” in the hallways as he walked by. We have truly lost a ray of sun with Ryan’s passing. Austin and Mr. & Mrs. Shoop, please accept my deepest condolences and my prayers.
