Our angel, Ethan Gage Massey-Rydl, beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin and friend, left this earth and joined his Father in heaven on May 13, 2010. His final days were spent surrounded by family, friends and special caregivers that Ethan had touched in some small way throughout his short, yet very memorable life. Ethan graced this world with his beautiful spirit on April 25, 2001 and each day of his life, he made this world a brighter place with his smile, his wild imagination and his loving nature. Ethan was the biggest little man with a kind, compassionate, solid, heart of gold. He loved going to the beach, playing with his friends and cousins, and swimming in the pool. He spent so much of his time planning big adventures and making elaborate plans for his life. He never met a stranger and made an effort to engage everyone he met in a conversation. Ethan attended Northern Hills Methodist and Community Bible Church in San Antonio and school at Huebner Elementary where he was a second grader. Ethan is survived by his family who loved him with all their hearts, including momma, Michelle Massey; daddy, Zac Rydl; Mr. Josh; Papaw and Gigi; Nana and Mr. Sheldon; Nana and Papaw Rydl; sisters, Harley and Katlynn; Aunt Erin, Uncle James and cousin, Cameron; Aunt Lolly and Uncle Nate; Aunt Danielle and cousin, Lauren; Aunt Tillie and cousin, Gabe; Uncle Sean and cousin Adian; Uncle Toby, Aunt Sarah and cousin, Connor; Aunt Stephanie and Nattie; Mr. Mike and best friend, Jaydon. The family will receive friends from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., Monday, May 17, 2010, at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
