October 11, 1984 to April 22, 2011

Dearest Ryan:

I walked away that morning, without a backward glance,

I didn’t know that moment was going to

be our last.

The last time I would hold you or see your lovely face,

The last time I would kiss you and feel your strong embrace.

So solid and so real, so vibrant and alive,

A happy face with twinkling eyes,

our fine young man, our child.

Our first born son, our Ryan,

the apple of our eye,

So cruelly taken from us,

we never said goodbye.

The shattered remnant of our heart

is strangely beating still,

With holes so black and fathomless

no light could ever fill.

We don’t know how we face each day

without our darling boy.

Gone is all happiness, the love of life, the joy.

You are loved and missed

Love Mom, Dad & Lori, Cassie & Kyle, Braxton, James,

Jordon, Cody, Ed & Doreen, Doug & Betty
