RIP Grandfather James Allen Ryan

My paternal Grandfather James Allen Ryan passed away on the fourth of April. I had no clue whatsoever. He was a great man. He was not perfect as no one is but he was my grandfather. I did hold some grudges against him as I felt he favored the boys over us girls. We got worse gifts and where to thought we did not like football like the boys. I will miss those days now. My favorite memories was going over to his house for a sleepover. He would order my sister and I a donatos everything pizza and then we would sleep in the sofa sleeper watching cartoons and playing with toys in the toy closet.

I remember him being a strong man who looked at Christ for all his needs. He was well respected in our community and I had the honor of being his granddaughter.

I am severely upset with that side of the family however including my sister. No one called me to tell me he passed. I found out through facebook of all places. I was hoping we could all become a family again but I realize now I am the black sheep of the family just like my father was. I will not attend his funeral either as I will not go cry over his body. I will stay at home with his great grand kids and rejoice with them as their great grandpa is having an awesome reunion with my grandmother and father. I loved you Grandpa. I am so sorry I did not get to tell you before you left this earth. I wish we could have had more time together but I know as an angel you will stand over my family tall and strong and watch over us.

Love your family and friends amigos You never know when time will pass and you will not get to say good bye.
