I knew Ryan all throughout elementary school (I moved after elementary) we had many classes together. We were even on the flag team together for a short period where we would lower the flag at the end of the day. He was a wonderful funny kind person back then and I am sure he grew up to be even better. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
