Grandma Ryan I sure hope you are in a better place and I hope the reunion was awesome. You are going to be missed by many... I remember visiting and you would sneak tomato sandwiches to your room. I didn't get to visit as often as I would have liked but any chance I got I would stop by... each and every time I went I learned something new about you. I loved listening to stories about your kids and grandpa. There are a lot of people who loved you and are going to miss you... please keep an eye on us... especially my mom.... You were very special to her....

LOVE YOU GRANDMA RYAN..... say hello to gramps and let him know we miss him.

I remember her as Grandma Ryan, and she was as sweet as pie. And yes I remember her cornbread in the cast iron skillet. So delicious. Didn't get to see her in many years, but I knew she loved me and I loved her. And she gave the best hugs.

Gram, I will remember so many things. Your tomato soup with hot water cornbread, your bisciuts, your chow chow. But I remember I loved canning with you so very much. It is something that has stayed with me all these years and I still love to do it to this day. Thank you for teaching me about Jesus and His love. Thank you for instilling the love of beautiful hymns in my heart. I love you Gram. Say hi to Papa for me.

My dear Grammies, there just aren't enough words to share all my countless memories of you! Being your first grandchild, there was that very special bond that only you and had! And that will forever be ours, and ours alone! Hope you're not kicking Jesus under the table to let him know that you have the Rook card! I know that I will see you and Grandpa again someday!!! Love you forever, Grammies!

My mother was 98 years old. We all really thought she would make it past the 100 mark. She took good care of herself. She never drove so it wasn't unusual to see her walking downtown to check the mail or shopping somewhere. I usually tried to come see her when I could, she was always happy to see us kids. Her hearing was gone so we really couldn't call her. But almost up til the end she would still joke around. The last few years she was in a wheel chair when her legs didn't want to work she just accepted it and always said the Lord knows what he is doing. She made sure we grew up knowing all about the Lord and the good book. Soon she will be up there in Heaven with her parents and my dad, what a day that will be. I thank my mom so much for everything she has done for me, and helping to shape and make me the person that I am and for my religious background that she instilled in me. Well mom I have talked enough, I love you, say hello to dad for me, I will see in The Sweet By & By. I will come talk again later.

I remember growing up learning about Jesus from Mom. She read her bible everyday, even when her eyesight was going. She would hold the bible up real close to her face and read. Because of her taking us to church and teaching us about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, we have the everlasting knowledge of the life here after. I also remember Mom's biscuits. No one ever did them better. Thank you Mom for all your love and guidance and support that you gave us. We will miss you and love you always, but you are in Haven now with Dad and Jesus.
