Mrs. Ryan, Tony & family. I always deeply enjoyed my visits to your home. Mr. Ryan always has a way of telling a story and bringing a smile to my face no matter how I was feeling. I feel blessed to have known him for such a short period of time.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mrs. Ryan and the entire family, during this very difficult time.
