I was just thinking about Ryan yesterday. I was thinking what it would have been like if they had not crashed their airplane and we had gone for our weekend away. Ryan would have had a lot of fun with my daughter. He loved my daughter. Ryan would have been 13 today. I was recently at a funeral for Gordon Smith of Santa Cruz. I saw some of Luke’s friends. They had grown to be nearly as tall as I am. I came to more fully realized that Luke and Ryan will be frozen in time. We’ll never see them older than the pictures we have. I imagine Ryan would be a pretty big guy. He had a stocky build.
We miss you and we’re thinking of you on your birthday, Ryan!
