Thank you all very much for your support... I can not begin to think how Alicia, my family, and I would get through this incredibly hard time without it. As I reflect on Ryan's life, and the many unforgetable times we had shared, I realize I not only lost brother, but my hero as well. I find much comfort and honor reading the many messages people have written; showing that they too embraced the qualities and charisma so prevalent in the life he lived. I know that he will live on in my heart forever... along with so many others. He is in heaven now, and he got there doing the very thing he loved so much. Ryan poured his heart and soul into what he believed in. So, as you remember and reflect upon the beautiful life of my brother, remember to keep faith in the very things you believe in.
I will miss you until we reunite in heaven. I love you Ry!
II Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown (victory wreath) of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing (presence)
1 Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.
Ryan has won the ultimate prize
