Ryan was an outstanding young man, full of vibrancy, joy, drive, and passion. After his passing, as his mom looked out our window, she spotted a beautiful white dove; it was perched in Ryan’s favorite tree in his backyard. Seeing this beautiful dove let his family know that even though Ryan isn’t with us physically anymore, we all know he is with us everywhere we go. However, “we” is not just Ryan’s immediate family. Ryan had two families: 1. His immediate family and 2.His family of best friends. Both are huge parts of Ryan’s life. Therefore, we wanted to have his entire family be part of this quilt piece. All together, we compiled all of Ryan’s favorite quotes and pictures, along with some sentimental notes from all of us. What did we end up with? A compilation of all of Ryan’s favorite people and things. Every one of us has had our lives changed and hearts touched by this amazing young man. Ryan was the best son, brother and friend. Now he is the best guardian angel walking with his whole family through every step of our lives.
