What Ryan gave to my family was not something he learned in a book or as a nursing student.

Ryan is just a wonderful person.  He was there at the point that my mother was not going to recover.  He not only had to deal with the medical needs of a patient, but he also had to deal with a family who had to come to terms with the fact that their beloved wife and mother and grandmother was not going to recover.  This included the realities of making some serious and difficult end of life decisions.  Ryan's concern was genuine - every time he came to check on my mother, he also checked on my father who had been married to my mother for 49 years.  He took an interest in getting to know my dad and me. That type of personal care made all the difference.  What Ryan gave to my family was not something he learned in a book or as a nursing student.  Wheat he did for us was tangible and invaluable.  My mother passed away and we mourn her loss greatly.  But Ryan helped make the passing dignified and for that, I am forever grateful.
