Iam sorry for your loss. I hope the best for your families and I think of the scripture at act 17:31 will comfort you in this time of need.

Dear Bud and to the entire Ryan Family ... love and prayers to you all. I have many great memories of Elinor ... She was a beautiful Lady with a big heart ... God bless her!

Dear Bud and Family:

Our deepest sympathy for your loss. We have fond memories of the days when Joe worked next door and told Elinor such funny stories and she enjoyed hearing them. I kept her up to date on our Christmas cards with all the family. The world has lost a loving, kind woman with a wonderful sense of humor. We cherish our old memories.

Love,
Joe & Teresa Terranova
