    Dear Luter Family, I am Marks Aunt Ruby and I met you at his services when he passed away. Cindi called me to tell me about Ryan. I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of spending time with Ryan and I could see why Mark considered him his best friend. He was a really nice young man. The only thought of comfort is knowing that the special bond that they shared is still being shared and now there are two special stars shining down on us. May all his memories be held in your hearts!

    Shawn, Morgan, and Maggie,
    We are so sorry and sad to hear about Ryan. Our whole family remembers Ryan and what a nice kid he was at GCA. Kirby always enjoyed having him as a classmate and teammate, and then there was the time our daughter, Holly and Ryan collided in PE. She had the best shiner to her eye and even found it humorous not too long afterward. I had the pleasure of taking care of the Luters at GCA Snack Bar. They always seemed to have a smile for me. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you. Please know, you and your granddaughter are in our prayers. I think of and pray for you everyday. I pray you feel the compassionate arms of Jesus around you. Hugging you in my prayers. 💛🙏🏻
    Mary Beth Edmondson
