Published in The Big Edition newspaper by my very loving and incredibly talented friend Shannon Ainslie. Thank you for bringing an awareness to Ryan and our continued search.

“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.” ~ R.J. Palacio

I thank everyone that contributes to our growth, our hope, our grief and our unending love.

For it is you that makes me yearn to be more than I ever thought I could be. If only to honour the boy I loved more than life itself.
