Dear Mrs. White,
I am writing to thank you for having brought Ryan into this world. He was a wonderful example of what wisdom and courage are all about. We all come into this world hoping to make a difference. Ryan did, and I am grateful to him for he helped me to grow.
I can't image a pain greater than that of losing a child. My heart and prayers are with you.
Ryan brought a candle to the darkness. His light will live on in all our memories.
Thank you. [redacted]
