Loving Mike and Wendy Ryan

Wendy was the love of Mike's life, and he was hers. Mike was a generous, kind, thoughtful man who struggled with insecurities and imperfections as we all have. His life has changed and touched many of us and we are happy he is dancing with angels! We are confident we will see his beautiful smile and hear his sweet laugh again.
In the meantime, I know there are many wondering how to help the love of his life... Wendy. 
We would like to have a service to celebrate Mike's life as well as take the financial burden off  Wendy and send Mike off with a beautiful tribute. 
Thanks to all for the incredible love and support to Wendy and the family during this difficult journey. You all have kept them up. It means more than you will ever know. 
Special thanks to Wendy's amazing son and DIL (whom Mike adored) Patrick and Miranda, their children Mimi, Emma and Jack. And a very special shout out to Bob and Linda and all the amazing family, neighbors and friends who never gave up and brought Mike home! There are no words for the love and generosity of people!
