I only learned yesterday of Ian's passing and am greatly saddened. Ian was a student in my UW study abroad program in Viet Nam in the summer of 2011. What a wonderful, unique and caring person he was! I will always remember the thoughtfulness and tenderness with which Ian encountered and engaged the world and all of its denizens. My sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. And much peace to Ian.

Dear Art, Maribel, and family - My heart lays heavy with yours as you grieve and soars with yours, too, in celebration of life. May God keep you.
I was in Djinn with Ian in 1997. I picked him up from the floor and carried him across an airplane hanger. It is such an intimate thing to carry someone in your arms and we worked well together, and became very close during that show. I think of lifting him in my arms now, and holding him with so much love. Bless you my friend. Graceful and peaceful journey to you on your next adventure. Flights of angels...Much love, Ian. Amy
All of our love and sympathy, Laura...I remember meeting Ian in a cafe in Paris and giving him a package from you. It's a cherished memory.
We send our love to Ian and to the family.
Peace, prayers and blessings to you and your family during this difficult time.
All my love to Laura and family and the extended family she and Ian have.
May all that so loved this young man find peace in this long hard journey of grief through loving memories & the support of us who love you.
Rest in peace. Sincere condolences to the family.
Nuestras más sinceras condolencias, Recordamos a IAN, como un joven simple, amable, muy cariñoso, con un alma libre, que en estos momentos esta volando muy muy alto, nuestro Señor lo protegerá, y dará fortaleza a sus padres, para seguir adelante.
NAda ni nadie es eterno en esta vida, pero si los momentos que nos regalo, quedarán para siempre en nuestros corazones
Nada más que pedir fortaleza para los que quedan en la tierra, y pasar este amargo dolor, mucha fuerza y amor primos, les queremos.

Artimus, I am so sorry for the loss of your son, don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything, my best to Maribel and family
Words can not express my sorrow for you. I carry your heart within my heart. Peace be with you.
I only know Ian through someone whose soul he touched deeply, and through the beautiful words here and in Laura's email. I am sorry for the pain that all who love him are feeling now. I've lived through it myself. May you all find peace and know that you will always carry him with you ~
My Dad remembers carrying you on his shoulder through Seattle Underground. I thank you for covering an entire bathroom in toothpaste, teaching Marja to love strawbabies and bluebabies, and introducing Charles to Harry Potter, of whom he had never heard but closely resembled as you explained. You remain forever a memorable young man.

My Dear Ian,
My deepest prayers and thoughts go to your mother. One of the last things you told was how much you loved her. You were my first love, a true friend and one of my soul mates. I will keep you in my heart forever. You may not be here but my memories of you are still alive and those will never die. You are in Gods hands now. Rest in peace. I love you forever.
To Art and family, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ian was obviously very much loved. Through your beautiful words, you've shared a bit of him with all of us. Thank you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of sorrow.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
My deepest sympathies. Your family will be in my prayers. Robin Marion, (JK) Charleston, WV
I love you my little Ian, even as a grown man, I still see you as my little ino. I miss you and my thoughts are with you daily
I'm thinking of you all.
What a beautiful tribute to a son who was deeply loved. Prayers of peace and comfort for the family.
You'll always be that four-year old who rode in my lap, fascinated with driving the truck.
We love and miss you, Ian. Love and peace to all. We hold you in our hearts.
Billy Jack & Soleil
You are loved Ian, as are all who hold you in their hearts.
Beautifully said. Blessings and love.
