Ryan's funeral was held on Saturday, March 7th, 2009. It was an absolutely beautiful service and an amazing tribute to Ryan and the incredible life which he lived. I am so proud of my brother and what a great man he was, how courageous and honorable he was, and how loving and caring he was to all he came in contact with. Everything was beautiful and sweet on the evening of his viewing and the morning of his funeral. It was so wonderful to have all of our dear family and friends there to honor him. So many traveled from great distances to be there and we truly appreciate you all. We know Ryan was there with us and was touched by it all. I love you my sweet brother!!!

My brother Ryan was in a very tragic and sudden accident on Thursday, February 26th and passed away in the early hours of Friday, February 27th. This is such a horrible loss to me and my family. Ryan was the most enthusiastic, charismatic, goal-oriented, caring, sensitive, hilarious and wonderful person I have ever known. He will be so deeply missed and my family and I would appreciate your prayers in our behalf, as we are struggling to cope with this great loss in our lives and the sometimes unbearable grief we are feeling. Thank you so much for everyone’s love and concern. Please visit our blog we have set up in honor of his life at http://www.ryanmouritsen.blogspot.com/
