This week, the outpouring of love and the number of words that has been written about Ryan has been mind-boggling. Emails, text messages, comments, guestbook entries, Facebook messages, tweets, and other communications have been flooding in. For me, it has been a blessing to see the difference that Ryan has made in his life, and how his legacy will continue into the future. It's comforting to know that Colton will be surrounded by thousands of people that will tell him of the unique, profound impact on their own lives because of his daddy.
To that end, a few other bloggers have taken the time this week to write about what Ryan meant to them - and the words are powerful. Thank you, Bill, Tyler, Abby, and Gramps - these words are a treasure to me and a salve to my heart.
