    Greetings Teri,
    So sad to hear about Ryan. I know how much you have loved and cared so deeply for him over the years – hugs and best wishes for you and your loved ones as you grieve.

    Somehow this very hot and very young guy who works as a bartender at Lush mentioned he knew you and how much he liked you and appreciated your advice. I told him to say hello for me – I think I’ve seen you out a couple times now without getting a chance to talk. Be well, my friend! We’ll see you soon.
