Jill, I am sure that Ryan is so proud of how strong and loving you are. Annette and I were witness to how God can work in someone's life. It is amazing how you can know someone through the eyes of a loved one. Ryan could paint portraits of those he loved with his words and stories. We are here for anything. May the Peace of Christ fall gently upon you as a warm summer shower. Mark and Annette
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ryan, you were such a great person. I'm sorry for my stupidity a few months back.. It was rather immature of me. You were one of my favorite people at Menards. You always, ALWAYS were nice to me. Not once were you rude, or anything. You understood me. You have touched so many peoples lives. May you rest in peace, Ryan.
Paula Ellis left a message on November 28, 2010:
Ryan, I will never forget your smile and wonderful attitude. I told you when I worked at Menards I had never worked for a company that had a human resource coordinator like you. You were always there if I needed you and if I messed up my time sheet you just smiled and said don't worry about it that is what I am here for, when we were all told that it was a major ordeal to correct it. You were always smiling, and if we got a big order of product in the Garden Center you were right there rolling up your sleeves to help! You were awesome at your job and everyone respected you. I never heard a bad word said about you and in an HR position that is something. So go in peace Ryan, I will never forget you, I will always remember you. My deepest sympathy to Jill.
Jennifer Murray left a message on November 28, 2010:

Lisa Roderick left a message on November 27, 2010:
To Jill, I am so sorry for your loss! Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you every second. The pastor at my dad's funeral last month said something that gave me a new perspective on the pain of loss, he said without great pain you never had the gift of great love and you and Ryan definitely had that. To Ryan, I am so grateful to have been able to call you my friend. It has been an amazing gift. I will miss you always! Love Ya!
Kristy left a message on November 27, 2010:
Ryan I hoped and prayed you would pull through, and though this all seems like a dream I know its not. You have so many people that love you down here that you need to watch over, so you better have big eyes dude! You had such a huge heart and you touched everyone's lives you'd met. I only hope you do the same up there. Just remember we all love you and we'll miss you greatly. You were a wonderful person. Jill, I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is the hardest thing in the world. I can only imagine what you're going through. I will be praying for you, and remember you always have us as support.
