  1. I hold so many memories of Ryan. He and Nathan were often in our home in high school and beyond, gaming with Jonathan in the front room or exercising in the garage. They would thump and rumble into the kitchen for ice and soft drinks later in the evening, bringing a jovial maleness to the house. Sometimes the joviality roused me from a solid sleep – and my habit was to stand silently behind the open freezer door in my nightgown, waiting to see their expressions when the door closed and Mamma was revealed. Perhaps my clearest memory, though, was of Ryan canoeing up our street to visit during a particularly generous tropical storm. It was a creative way to travel in the neighborhood, that is, until the water began to recede. He, Nathan, and Jonathan ended up carrying it several blocks back to their house.

    A truer friend my son hasn’t had. He and Nathan were his mainstays in high school and during college. Who else would have taken off down the street on foot to help corral our escaped dog, who loved to lead a merry chase? Or helped out for a work picnic my husband had? There is more, but mostly I want to say I hold Ryan in my memory with great warmth and affection. And it makes me sad that he left so early, leaving behind such a hole. Yet please know, too, that our family is praying for tender comfort and strength for you all as you grieve and remember him.
