"Ryan, there isn't a day that goes by without you crossing my mind. I miss you. It's so crazy to think I lost you so young. I remember my first day at Riverton Elementary in 3rd grade, you came up to me and asked me to be your best friend. Although I thought it was a little akward at the moment, I said yes. I to this day have never regretted saying yes to you. Growing up with you was an honor to me. You were always there through everything. We had our ups & downs but we made it through alright. I love you & miss you boy. Rest In Peace."
