I MET RYAN WHEN HE WAS 16YRS OLD AND HIRED HIM TO WORK AT MR. GATTIS. ME AND HIM ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT THE TIME HE WAS WORKING THE DISH ROOM AND HE CAME BACK TO TALK TO ME. WE TALKED FOR A WHILE AND THEN I SAID WHAT IS THAT AND HE TURNED AROUND AND THERE WAS WATER AND SOAP SOADS RUNNING DOWN THE FLOOR. HE HAD STARTED FILLING THE SINK AND FORGOT. I SPENT 30 MINS OR MORE SWEPING IT DOWN THE DRAIN BUT WE LAUGHED THE WHOLE TIME AND 10 YRS LATER WE WERE STILL LAUGHING.

Ever since then me and him rode as much as we could including his brother adam. He took me in as a riding buddy but treated me like a brother..I miss Ryan everyday and there arent enough words to describe how great of a person he was..I fell like have lost a brother, i know he is having a blast up there and is looking down upon all of us..I hop Adam and his sister and all of ryan's family will stay strong..Love u much man!!

So many good times with that idiot!!! The cook outs, we ordered all the stuff for his old jetta together. I still miss having Ryan and TJ just walk in my house and go straight for the fridge, then turn and say hi!!! He went with me to get my R1 and always steared me in the right direction. Our close nit of friends are still together and miss him like crazy. There isn't a day that goes by that there isn't a memory of Ryan J. "Bitches love me" Shipp brought up.
We miss ya brother!!!

I met Ryan when I started dating his sister. We lived in the same neighborhood. Immediately we became friends. Even after things ended with Sam, Ryan and I were tight all the way to the end. I was there when he had his first wreck, I watched him go down, and I helped him up, brushed him off, and watched him ride the sickest wheelie out of that curve. Then after his second wreck, I went to his house and helped care for him. I literally packed him to the bathtub. I was between jobs at the time, so I went over and got Ryan and brought him to my house. We played Oblivion for like 2 weeks straight. He would play when I slept, and I would play while he slept. My wife was pissed lol... I put Ryan on his first bike, my ninja zx1100. I put Ryan on his second bike, my ninja 600. I went with Ryan and bought his first bike, a GSXR 750. As a matter of fact, I drove it about 400 miles in Georgia in the pouring rain because he didn't know how to ride yet (that was a trip that the 4 of us will never forget :D). I went with Ryan to get his jetta in North Carolina. We had lots of fun on that trip. And who could forget the ENDLESS hours we spent on Warcraft!! We would stay up for days on end and just play. We journied across Azeroth together. We spent the past 6 years or so together. Almost every day until we (my wife and I) moved out of town. I hate it that I didn't get to see Ryan as much since the move, but I feel good because we always stayed in contact. I could set here and talk about fun times all night long, times at Gamestop, times at my house or his, times at Travis' apartment, times in Raikes' basement, random road trips, times at his and TJ's house recently. There isn't a day that goes by that I dont' miss him dearly. And to be honest, Im still having trouble trying to figure out how to deal with it. I loved Ryan like no other, and am very blessed to have had the chance to spend so much time with him over the last 6 or 7 years. We had many, many long talks about everything from life, love, religion, you name it, we covered it. I will always cherish all the memories I have of Ryan. I feel happy now thinking about them. And to all his friends and family, good luck in your journies. I hope you all find peace and assurance in the fact that you will see Ryan again. It wasn't just Bitches that loved you Ryan, Everyone who knew you did. I did. Thank you for changing my life in so many ways.

NO COMMENTS ON THIS THREAD SINCE OCTOBER 2008...

So I thought I'd keep it alive. I don't get on TOPIX much myself, but I thought about Ryan just the other day, June 12th, which was the 1-year anniversary of his tragic death. So I stopped by the grave site for a quick visit...

Still seems odd to have him gone. I still have several old messages in my MYSPACE inbox from him. Not gonna delete those.

Well, enuf from me...keep the memory alive!

I knew Ryan from high school. I had the biggest crush on him for all 4 years. I was IN LOVE. I had it bad. lol. We just remained friends though. I was too shy to say anything, so I remained in torture the whole time, watching him date girl after girl, Jami and Dana, I think? Well, he finally asked me out on a date our senior year. Well I was so syked, I didn't know how to act. I grew up with my father and he was super strict and told me I couldn't date. So I asked him anyway and my dad said...NO! I was devastated. Ya'll know what I mean. So we graduated and life went on. I saw Ryan from time to time in Campbellsville and we would talk for a few minutes. I wonder it would have been like to go on a date with him. I just thought about this because my niece just lost her boyfriend in a car accident. He was only 23. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a child. I have 2 of my own. I know the pain is always there, it's been 4 years. I pray that the family is well. I'm sorry for leaving this book, but just wanted to share the memory. I never told anyone but my dad...God Bless.
