Not sure what to say?

Greg - your eulogy was moving beyond belief. I had no idea that your Dad was dealing with PD. As a retired Professor of Neurology at Yale, I can fully understand the strength and courage it took to deal with everyday existence. I don't know if you were aware that in the early 60s, your Dad was our Biology professor. As I've already stated, he was unparalleled and I am not the least bit surprised by those aspects of his life, that you so eloquently detailed, that most of his former students...

Dear Peggy,
My heart goes out to you and your family
for your loss. I have not seen Amby in so
long, but I still remember Joanie, and I
sitting at the kitchen table and Amby helping us with science. He was such a
great guy. My prayers are with you all.

Eulogy for My Dad Ambrose Joseph Ryan

My father never complained. Not once during the 26 years of Parkinson's Disease eating away at his body did any of us hear him say, “Why me God? Why did you do this to me?” It started out slowly with some problems with his balance. I remember I used to go golfing with him and 10 years into the disease for the first time in my life I got to drive in a golf cart. (Prior to that he always insisted we walk with a pull cart). His decline...

Greg, Marianm Ambrose, Martin & Deaglan,

We will all miss seeing your Dad/Grandpa at the soccer games. He will definitely be there in spirit, and the next goal you score, know that he helped!

Ray and I offer our prayers and our sympathy to Peg and all the Ryan family for the loss of their dear Ambrose. Ray and Joan Gosselin

Affectionately known by his students back in the Class of '65, 'Amble' broke my ankle during an intramural basketball game, but I forgave him as he was the most passionate, accessable, endearing and just plain friendliest professor I've ever had. Professor? Yes. He was better than anyone I had in college.

Austin, Texas 2012 with the Texas Ryans

Ambrose was a wonderful grandfather and father-in-law. He had the kindest eyes and a wonderful singing voice. He was always interested in anything the kids were doing and was a great listener. I wish I had known him longer. I am so grateful that we were able to spend as much time with him and Peg as we did, us living so far away. We had many great summers and vacations with them that we will never forget. Peg, we love you and we know that Ambrose will always be with us.

I'm sorry to hear of Mr. Ryan's passing. He was a wonderful chemistry teacher and inspired me to persue a career in science.
