I was in a daze when I first heard the news. It didn't hit me until i received a reply from Ryan's father on twitter. I wrote him that as a father, i could not imagine what he is going through and he replied. . .
@Skadave@taswell please keep you son close by. Hug them every time you can, learn to love him unconditionally. The best gift you can give.
This hit me hard. Even now when i read it, it still gets to me.
