“Sandy and Roger my heart breaks for you, and for Ryan's children, and for Shiloh. I remember Shiloh telling me at the high school how close he was to his Uncle Ryan. We first got to know Ryan as a second grader in our cub scout group. After that for many years and summers he was a frequent visitor at our house....always fun and always quick to flash a smile. As an adult, whenever we would run into him, at the golf course or out to eat, he was always so friendly and seemed so proud to show off his kids. My heart breaks for all of you. I know I will miss him, I can only imagine how hard this is for you. My one consolation in all of this is my memory of Tiger and how proud she was of her grandson, and now they are together, looking out for each other. RIP Ryan ..you made a difference and you will be missed. Vicki ”
