  1. The biggest thing i will miss about ryan is his smile. No matter what was going on that may have not been good, he was always able to just smile and shrug his shoulders. Ryan had such a big heart and you could see it through his eyes, in his life he could have easily been a bitter person but he couldnt have been more opposite. Ryan was really, really loved by us and he will forever be missed and never forgotten. We love you Ryan.

  2. Carol, Jim, Craig & Jamie,
    The sadness of life will not take away the wonderful memories of a beautiful little boy. Ryan will always be loved and remembered.

    To this day, we remember the time when Ryan was at our house with his hands under the bathroom faucet, warm water flowing for what seemed like forever. We asked Ryan what he was doing and he said “warming my hands”! We have laughed soooo many times since then, when we, like Ryan, warm our hands under the faucet. We call it; “Doing a Ryan”. Sweet memories… that’s what we’ll remember.
    Much love and prayers,
    Sherry & Gary Savage

  3. My name is Rigo Miller. RYAN is next to my grandfather Emilio Lopez and grandmother Rafaela Lopez. They were very loving parents and grandparents. It’s nice to read RYAN’S story and its comforting to know they rest next to each other.
