Dear Jeanne + everyone,
You each have all our sympathies at your great loss. Ryan was a very very Special Young Man. All anyone had to do was to look at him, they'd be able to see how loving - forgiving + tenderhearted he was. He went thru so much - it doesn't seem fair. But my GrandMa - who lived to be 97 ½ always told people "Never 2nd guess God! He has a reason for everything he does!" How true her words of wisdom are! Look at All the Good Ryan Did - All the lives that were touched + changed because of him! He's giving with Jesus now - out of paint + everying he dealt with here on earth.
He's with my GrandMa (who went home [date redacted]-89) - GrandPa + my 5 month old brother, + (countless other dear sweet people)...As he is with all the loved one's he had - who went before him.
I'm sending you the clipping's on Ryan which were in the [redacted] Press. Also included are poems that I thought would give you comfort. I thought each one was very special. The 2nd one on the bottom - was sent to my folks when Kurt died in 1965 (he died at home - he had a heart murmur + back then - they couldn't do anything about it.).
It helped my Parents go through that period - so I'm shareing it with others who are in need. One was a couple who lost their 2nd baby to an inheirited disease, a girl at 7 ½ mon's, a boy at
9 month's, And a lady who lost 2 son's (22 yrs + 5) who were struck + killed by a car while walking. Both said it really helped them - I wanted to get a copy to you also.
May God Keep you + your's continually wrapped + protected within his arms of Love.
Love M-M Jim [redacted], Eric [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] Michigan [redacted]
