The Ryan Family who were lead by Mr. Ryan (Leo) were great neighbors. Mr Ryan and his wife raised 3 great children. I was glad to call myself a neighbor to the the great Ryan family on South Crescent.
Your father and mother looked after the Popik and Boland boys....We enjoyed playing basketball at your house.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

Your mother and father are waiting for you in the Lord's house.
