My nephew Ryan Piper has died from his injuries sustained during an accident while on his trip to Vietnam.  Our family is grieving and with this tragic loss the concern and worry of how to bring him home has started to set in.  His parents, Ken and Debbie Piper and his sister Alishia Garcia have been working most of the day to try to obtain emergency visas to permit travel.  In speaking with the embassy office and consulate they have found out that Ryan's body may only be released to the family after they positively identify him.  To bring Ryan home the costs are currently estimated at $30,000. 
After speaking with Debbie on the phone we decided to try to ask our family, friends and loved ones to help during this time of need and crisis.  If you can give anything please help and be praying for the whole family as we grieve this unbearable loss.

Wanted to send a huge thank you to all of YOU (the donors and groups) that have donated to help bring Ryan home and help offset the costs associated with his untimely death. He is home and the family is working to organize his memorial service on March 9th.

I wanted to give an update about where things are at. I know many of you have been following the updates and praying for everyone involved.

I was communicating with Debbie this morning and she is absolutely overwhelmed by the love that people are showing through donations. She said, "No words seem adequate to communicate my appreciation. I only have tears and a broken heart to share."

As of right now we believe that Ed and Brant will be able to continue working on the logistics in Vietnam to bring Ryan home. They have an interpreter that is assisting them, so continue to pray for them.
The family here has been working on the logistics and preparation for Ryan's arrival home and his memorial service.

We will keep you updated as we can and just thank you for the bottom of our hearts for the support in prayer, donations and love. We are so grateful.
Thank you!!
