Condolence: I think of you often. Don’t know where else to say it out loud, besides here...which is wildly depressing. I just wish I could text you. Crimson and clover ❤️

Condolence: Ryan attended my class at the University of Arizona and was an extremely bright and conscientious student. He was erudite and intelligent, compassionate and kind. He worked for me as a grader the following semester and spent many hours of his own time tutoring students. He would get in touch now and then after he graduated and it was always such a pleasure to hear from him. Ryan spoke often of his family and it was clear he had such great love for them. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
