I just heard this sad news today. Ryan was the first friend I made after moving to Cranston, and directly accross his street. We were both fourteen years old. My younger sister and I became fast friends with him and his brother Kevin, sitting on the front steps and sharing Nintendo games. Our families became quite friendly and years later I was honored to be escorted to Ryan's brother Mike's Moses Brown Prom as a good friend. Unfortunately, as we all grew up, time moved us apart, as time so often does, and Ryan and I lost touch as did our siblings. I will pray for Ryan's daughter to find happiness and success, and to know how kind her dad was... And I pray that Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson and all of Ryan's family to find peace in God. Ryan is always with you. I know Ryan's memory will live on and I feel so blessed to have known him and lucky that I could call him my friend. God Bless and my deepest sympathies.
