Ginny, all of your family-- I just found out who Ryan was and I'm so very sorry to hear of the pain you're all going through over the incredible loss of his precious life. I know how much you treasured him. I will pray for your hearts to be filled with the hope that only Jesus can bring-- everlasting life-- that He would fill you with his peace and comfort you through this grief and one day because of Christ you would be reunited with him again, full of joy , never to have to part again. My heart is broken for you and your family. Love Tammy Brereton (Patrick)

I just can't believe it...it seems like only yesterday, your Aunt Lucia is yelling down the stairs at you about your shoes being in the wrong place or some such typical kid stuff...I remember eating dinner together and being silly together...you boys were so loved by your Aunt Ginny and Aunt Lucia...i don't think you could ever know how much their worlds revolved around you...i hope the first thing you got to see was your Aunt Lucia's infectious smile as she drew you into the best hugs ever invented...

My heart goes out to the Rafferty Curbow family...i can't imagine what you are going through right now...i can't even wrap my own head around it...much love and peace I wish for you all.

Dear family,
My heart goes to each and everyone of you. I know Ryan loved his family. His children are priceless in his eyes. Johnny, no matter what, your brother loved you as a brother,, a friend; the one who would be there to pick him up when he fell. The two of you would have each other's back until the end. In the last 10 years I was privileged to get to know Ryan. He definitely was a jokester. Always wanting to have fun , putting smiles on everyone's face. He was proude to be a boilermaker. To teach when we needed a teacher. To be a brother when we needed a brother. We lost a unique one of a kind. I know he Is a great father with two very beautiful children. I will personally miss him with all my heart . Will never forget him!! He will always be our Brothers Keeper. Rest In Peace Ryan
One of your many brothers
