Obituary, letters to Colton, and pictures.

Hello friends, I wanted to let you know that the service times have been posted online, in Ryan's obituary:

http://www.kingfuneralhome.net/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=2058536&fh_id=10968

The other thing that I wanted to ask of you: I would like to collect letters that are addressed to Colton that tell him about who his daddy was.  Ryan was many things to many people: an inspiration, a blessing, comic relief, maybe even an occasional pain in the neck!  As Colton grows, I would love to be able to share your stories and memories with him.  I am asking that people send these letters to Colton one of three ways:

1.) Email the letter to the email address below.
2.) Send the letter in the mail to: Colton Prudhomme, c/o Grace Adventures, 2100 N Ridge Rd, Mears, MI 49436.
3.) Bring the letter to one of the services.

This will be such a valuable thing for our son to have.  I thank you in advance for helping us.

The last thing I would like to ask for is pictures of Ryan.  If you have any pictures of Ryan from his childhood or adulthood, please email them to the other email address listed below.  It would be best to have these in before Thursday morning, so that we could possibly incorporate them into a slideshow.

Thank you.

I am so grateful for the outpouring of love the last 36 hours from our friends, family, and blog readers.  We as a family are so amazed at the far-reaching impact that Ryan had in his 27 years.  He packed a lot of meaning into his short life, and God graced him with an amazing message to bring to encourage people.  I already miss him so much, but God has already so clearly given us peace and comfort in the midst of our deep sorrow.

Kendra,
Ryans impact and life is no doubt amazing but make no mistake that YOU have also made such an incredible impression on so many people and truly a great impact on many lives yourself. May God Bless you and Colton as well as your friends and family as you continue this journey of LIFE. Prayers your way continue.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
Many thanks

heres a time I met Ryan. One day it was Monday and i was so excited for chapel but what I didn't know was grace adventures had sent Ryan to show us some horse skills. As he was preaching to us he had volunteers and he picked me i was so excited. I hoped that the next year he would come again but he didn't and then yesterday the guy I hadn't seen in four years died on Monday morning my thoughts are with u and ur family!

I will be writing a letter--Ryan made a huge impact on my life. I thank God for him and his ministry. Kendra, you are inspiring as well! You are a model of what a strong woman of God is, and your trust in the Lord is challenging and encouraging. My prayers are with you and everyone connected to Ryan as I am grieving with all of you.

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful
than ever before.
