Another posted, “Dear Matthew and Janice and Nicole,
“My heart is breaking for all of you in your loss. You are in my continuing prayers as we try to make sense of this tragedy. When I first got the news I immediately had a vision of your dad, Matt, and my mother reaching out with open arms to embrace Ryan. May all your happy memories of your beautiful son bring you comfort and help you to heal.”
The family asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Ryan’s name to:
The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, 371 East Jericho Turnpike, Smithtown, 11787.
He leaves his parents, Janice and Matthew Mullen, and a sister, Nicole Mullen.
