To the Rothfuss family - I was so sorry to learn of Ryan's passing. I remember him, and your entire family, from my years at RCS, as gracious, quiet, lovely people and my heart goes out to all of you. I hope this reminds every parent to hug their child daily and to keep the Rothfuss family, and their beloved Ryan, in their prayers.
