Dear Teddi,

Your sorrow is experienced and felt deeply. Tears stream from my eyes in the passing of your beautiful daughter, Dana.  I’m aware of how very precious she is to you and know that while this makes her absence painful, God observes your anguish with tender concern.  May God’s Angels of comfort bless you and Gregory and Billy during this time and look over you with tender mercies and loving kindness. Matthew 5:4.  He has brought her entrance into heaven, to walk before Him forever in everlasting Light You are all are in my heart; and my prayer is that the beautiful years you had together will bring you comfort.

 

“With You in Spirit“

Thank you for your kind words. As Ryan's mother four family  is heartbroken over the loss of our son Ryan and the love of his life Dana. It is our hope that the judicial process will continue to hold Broderick Jones accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
