Ryan Segar's Funeral

$10,104 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 149 people in 3 months
Jason Segar, Kristen, and I lost our son, Ryan Segar tonight. He told us he was going to Film Alley with a friend. With Dad on speaker phone, our last words to him were "clean your room, pick up the yard, and don't do anything stupid". The police knocked on our door around 9pm to sit us down with the medical examiner and explain that Ryan was hit by a car and didn't make it. We are still in shock, devastated, and don't know what to do with ourselves. Ryan was a genius. A young adult. An engineer in training. And he thought he was invincible. Our hearts are broken. Please keep us in your thoughts, prayers, send vibes, and most of all, think of Corey, who lost his big brother. We're taking a few days off from work to spend time together as a family and wait to make funeral arrangements. If anyone talks to Jason, I'm reminding him that Ryan was a happy kid, a genius, and for being so young, lived a full life. He got to live with his Daddy, and that made him happier than anything in the world. RIP Jason Jr. Dad, Mom, and Step-Mom love you so much.

Ryan would feel so loved by all of you. Thank you for helping our family. Along with funeral costs, your support has helped with lost wages, especially for Jason, as he's really struggling to get back to work. I don't know how but we'll get through this together and it's largely because of each of your kind words, love, and support.

Once Jason is up to it, we're thinking of starting a charity in Ryan's name, maybe to provide bike lights or helmets to kids in the neighborhood. Jason gave Ryan and Corey's neighborhood friends each a bike flashlight and a lecture about bike safety. Ryan's memory will live on and our loss will help save other lives.

We love and appreciate you all during this difficult time. I don't know how to thank you enough. It's embarrassing to ask for help but no one is ever prepared to plan a funeral for their teenager. We could not have gotten through this without you all and Ryan's services would not have happened without your support. Thank you, from the bottom of our broken hearts.

From the bottom of my heart, I cannot thank you all enough for your donations, love, and kind words about our amazing boy. We knew he was awesome, but we had no idea how many other people knew it also. <3

No words can explain the pain we're all feeling, and the shock we're still in. Our boy was perfect. Also, I cannot find any words other than "thank you" to show my gratitude for the support we've received from everyone.

Ryan was handsome, giving, and so very intelligent. Please join us Saturday at the Weatherford High School Auditorium to celebrate his life. Viewing starts at 1:00, funeral starts at 2:00, with a dove release to follow, and then we hope people will join us to Film Alley to release balloons with messages to Ryan.

I still can't believe this is real.
This is the shirt Ryan will be wearing.
