This isn’t the post I’d planned for my re-entry into the blogosphere. But, this seems fitting given that my last post focused on my friend Meri and her husband Ryan.
Many of my friends outside of the DOC have asked about Ryan.
It breaks my heart to share that Ryan lost his battle against cancer last Sunday, September 2nd.
I can’t begin to tell you the sadness I feel.
I’ve been struggling all week to write something in memory of Ryan and in support of Meri and their four boys either here or on Facebook. No words seem adequate.
So I will keep it short. Meri, M, J, B and L, you’re in my heart, in my thoughts, and in my prayers. I’m sending love, lots of love, and as you lay your wonderful husband and father to rest today, I’ll be there with you in spirit. I truly wish I could be there with you in person.
When Ryan’s battle first began, a fundraiser was created to help with the Schuhmachers’ expenses. Meri and the boys still need that help. Please consider giving. No amount is too small, and all donations will be deeply appreciated. If you can help in any way, please visit the Give Forward site below. Thank you!
