Ryan was 13 years old. She was a dedicated cheerleader; daughter; sister; niece; granddaughter and friend. Ryan took on the world with wide eyes and a big smile. There was nothing that could stand in her way or deter her from something new and challenging. She was a leader among her peers and welcomed any new face with open arms, becoming a friend to anyone she encountered. Ryan excelled at cheering and was always there for her teammates. More than that she was an amazing girl who loved life. She was bubbly, fun and smart with a bright future. Her laugh was contagious, and her dimples would melt your heart! 

On October 25, 2017, Ryan was killed on her way home from school. There had been an accident at 68th and Olive Creek Rd. Due to the road being two lanes with no shoulder it caused dozens of cars to become backed up a mile. My oldest daughter Riley was driving home and came over a hill and had stopped just in time to tap a car in front of her. Unfortunately the next car that came over the hill was not as lucky and slammed in to Riley's car. Ryan was crushed in the back seat and died on impact. We we're fortunate that we were able to donate her organs and she was able to save five lives with her donation. Collisions on this road happen way too often and precautionary measures such as stop lights, reduced speeds, or widening the roads to add shoulders need to happen immediately to ensure that no more children area killed. Not one more family should have to bury their family. Please help protect our children.
