Beau St. Dennis
You were one of the greatest friends I've ever known. When I hear the words "caring" and "selfless" I always think of you. Thank you for the difference you made in my life. Thank you for always listening to me when no one else would. We kept in touch in an unconventional way, through a social gaming network, and I cherish every second of it. I know that where ever you are, you are happy and looking out for us like you always do. I love you Ryan.
Nathan of Alaska
My deepest condolences. I'm bad with words. I only wish I could have been you healer and you my tank. #WoWBrother
Andrew, Andria, Sadie & Cash Hall
Our deepest sympathies and condolences go out to anyone who's life was touched and inspired by this young man, but none more then that of the family. Beth, Brian, Scottie, Ashley, Kristen and families, you have always held a special spot in our hearts and we sincerely share in your grief and morning. May the Lord always bless all of you and be your rock. Ryan has been in all of our thoughts lately and those thoughts contain some of the fondest childhood memories anyone could ask for. I can only hope that as he grew he held these memories as close to his heart as I did, unaware of how joyous those memories were until the great abundance of them flooded my heart and mind. Please accept our unconditional love and continous prayers for all of you, and your families, and all of our tragic loss.
I send my utmost deepest condolences from Denmark, to Ryan's family and friends. May his memory live on through us all.
Though I did not know him personally he seemed to be a #WowBrother to many people and such a sad death does not deserve to happen to anyone. I hope that he will fight alongside the Titans against the Old Gods and maybe his greatness will help them win!
My deepest condolences. #WowBrother
Life's ironies can sometimes be unbearable. To lose a son after getting one of the most prestigious positions in Michigan seems torturous.

So wish I knew why tragedies happen but I do believe with all my heart that he is with God and it was in God's timing that he brought him to heaven even though we wonder why.

Dear Whistons - We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you during this time. Very deepest condolences, Kyle and Kirsten
So sorry for your lose. He will be greatly missed.
Dear Whiston family - My deepest prayers and condolences go out to you. I cannot begin to imagine what you are going through but my thoughts are with you. Ryan was one of the kindest individuals I have ever met. I don't think he had a single mean bone in his body. I am proud to say that I knew him and that I had the opportunity to be a teammate of his. Always try to remember to smile at the knowledge that he is only gone in the physical plane and he is still there with you always.
Beth, I did not have the pleasure of knowing your family or your son, but I have known you for years, and I can only begin to imagine the heartache that you and your family are confronting. I was out of town, and saw this sad news upon my return. My heartfelt condolences to you and your entire family. Words are not sufficient for this type of sadness; I hope you will rely upon your strong sense of faith and character and know that many people care about your family. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you in any manner.
My kindest wishes to you.
