    Ryan was one of the kindest men I ever met. I worked with Ryan at gwatney. He taught me how to solve a Rubik’s cube. He was always there to help with any thing you might need. His father and him had the best relationship I ever witnessed between a father and son. A relationship full of love, respect, and fun. I hope I can be as good of a father as Ryan was, a good as a father as James is.
