To The Gillum Family, Relatives and Friends I’m sorry for the loss of your loved one. Ryan was a wonderful man with a heart of gold and will be sorely missed by everyone that knew him. He was one of the most loving caring individuals (and Father’s) that I have ever known… I’m sure the almighty and all of his heavenly host will now enjoy the warmth, tenderness and kindness, which overwhelmingly radiated from him that he always shared with us all. May the peace of God be with each of you during this time of need, and help you endure the loss of wonderful man that we’ve all come to love, respect and admire so dearly... I pray that God will reach down with his loving hands and comfort each of you through this great loss and time of sorrow, and profusely cover you all with his great love and compassion to help see you through your great loss. Ryan is now in the loving hands of the Almighty Heavenly Father, who will now look out for all his heavenly needs. As Les Ramey said “God must have a bunch of deer in heaven to have called Ryan home so soon”…

Dana, Dereck; I never knew the man Ryan grew into, only the little 9yr.old boy. I have learned that the boy I knew remained with him into adulthood and allowed him to be the man all of you knew and loved.A loving son,devoted and loving husband and precious of all, a father.May God Bless and bring you peace.

Dana and Derek, I cannot even begin to be able to wrap my head around what you must be feeling right now. He was such an amazing person. Last time I saw Ryan, I remember looking at our old pictures and Ryan reflecting on how Ciara and I used to sit on his lap while you fixed our hair. Those are the memories I will keep with me. Know that both of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need ANYTHING. I love both of you.
