|Let the memory of Ryan be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved son,
Ryan von Duering, 24, born on December 4, 1991 and passed away on January 12, 2016. Ryan passed away during the very early morning in bed, of Sudden death associated with epilepsy. Was told that seizure activity can occur despite anticonvulsant medication levels. Other than that he was a normal and healthy young man who will surely be missed forever.
"Always a hard day for me on the 12th I cry I miss you so much...I remember all the times we played games and went to the movies..All our trips when you were younger Baby I Miss you so much..A parent shouldn't ever have to feel this way...It's so hard to bare my heart is broken..♥♥♥♥ We love you!!"
"We miss you so much Ryan. All of us think about you everyday. I think about riding horses in Colorado. Playing in and shoveling the snow. Driving to and from Grandma and grandpa's house while we listened to Creedence. Fishing down at the ponds where you ALWAYS out-fished me. You will always be on my mind and in my heart."

"I missed you so much yesterday for my birthday. Missed the smile, laugh, and all the rest."
"I hear a dove outside your window every day, cooing mornings and evenings. Warms my heart to hear that. One day it was up above the window outside on the eve above our living room real pretty bird...I couldn't believe it...I froze in place watching, he did some circles on the eve looked at me and then flew away...I Love and miss you always hun."

"I miss you every day."
"Today is fathers day hun..I am sure your dad is hurting more so today that his only child is up in heaven. Watch over him today Ryan.. You were fortunate to have two dads. They both love and miss you very much as do I. I know you had your plans of becoming a father as you talked about it... saddens me that never came about...I wanted so much for you to have the chance to experience a lot of things in your life but your life was cut way to short. I cry a lot baby Love & miss you Ryan !!"
"I spent yesterday thinking of you. I watched Age of Ultron, Minions, made chocolate milk with Hershey's, made burgers and mac-n-cheese. I was wishing you were there. Missing your laugh, smile, all of you.
I love you"
"The pictures and videos of you when you were little I will cherish them forever....the video of you asking me to hold your basket your voice saying "Mommy hold this" tears run down my face..awe honey I feel so empty my baby is gone away. I know your not a baby...all grown up. I love you my son. xoxo"
"I look at your pictures on the piano and walls every day. I keep them where I see them as I come in the house and as I leave. My heart is always with you."
"I have been thinking about our trips to Colorado as well. I remember all the times we listened to Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nora Jones, Ozzie, Cream, and much more. I miss you singing w the music. I expect you to come over from mom's, or go over to mom's. We all miss and love you Ryan."
"There is not a day that goes by that I am not talking to you. There are times that I feel your going to walk through the door as if you have been to Colorado visiting. I miss our talks I miss you in every way!! Your laughter.. Oh my I love your laugh...and I love & Miss you Ryan!"
"You are always missed but we know your spirit is still around us from time to time....... :]
"Four months. It is so hard to wrap my mind around it, my heart. Every time I think of you, I tear up. I catch myself just about to call out your name, feeling you are still there. Love you!
"Even though we never got to meet there is that place where we will !! See you on the other side cuz !!"
"Ryan I find it hard to believe it's been four months since you started your journey. All of us so miss you and Love you. I know I call you baby a lot now but your always be my baby... always. I can hear you say mom " I'm not a baby." I Love you my sweet son ...big hug and kisses. Your Mom"
"We really missed you yesterday. Your flowers are in mom's arms."
"This mothers day is going to be especially hard to bare...I feel so sad that you are not here with me. Remembering the last mothers day where all my boys were here to take me to lunch, never knowing that be the last one you would be here with us, I love you Ryan all of you are very special to me your brothers & you made it a very surprising and memorable day. I cry every day baby I miss & Love you so much!!"
"I look here and just let your pictures keep going. I miss you!"
"I love you soooo much! I miss you all the time. I got you covered for Mother's Day flowers. It's that time of year, flowers and trees blooming. Weeds too. Miss your help weed-whacking. Miss your laughs, playing games.
I love you!"
"I wake every morning with you on my mind...as if you had been talking to me during the night. I walk into the hall and shadow is in your room he is in the same spot every morning. He is wondering where his friend is I am sure. I cry every day baby...I miss you so much my heart is broken. We love & Miss you!!"
"Three months without you is too much. I miss you so much son. I took your trophy over so it will be with all your other stuff."
"I wish I could take back time...I would go back three months and a day to try and fix this. We miss you so much!!! Shadow waits for you under the night light in your room. It's a light with a tree he lays and waits for you. I will love you forever my sweet son.."
"You were such a delight watching you grow up. Memories will forever be in our hearts. Everything about you I miss. Love you Ryan"
"I remember that day, and others. Ryan finding eggs and laughing as he did so. I miss him so."
"Here it is Easter.....hearing birds outside and one little bird sitting on my car. He sat there for a real long time watching me as I walked towards him I have never had that happen before. I am remembering the Easter egg hunt in Grandma's front yard. You were three at the time and were very excited every time you found an egg be it plastic or real and the real ones you would throw in the basket and crack the shell. Ryan you were so much fun watching you grow up...I Love you xoxox"
"And if I go,
while you're still here...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
-behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
-both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.

Ryan in my heart forever"
"Ryan, we miss you so much! All of us love you. I miss the zombies, the dinners, the everything. It is you that made all those things fun."
"I light a candle for it has been two months since you have been gone.. I really can't grasp that you really are not with us anymore, here. I feel you are at a friends house but in reality you are in heaven with God who sent you to me. Tell him "Thank You, for letting me be your mom. Always and forever We Love & Miss You!"
"Ryan I talk to you every day...I go into your room and remember some of the things you would do or say...I love your laughter when you would play with the cat, and how you would giggle at him. Hun we miss you so much and I will never understand why this happened. Even going to the store is very hard without you and how you knew exactly what you wanted. Rob speaks of you every day.. Always in our hearts...son Love you forever..Mom"
"Ryan, you will always be with us. Your mother, Rob, and I will always be loved by you and love you. Never shall a day pass where we do not think of all the joy and love that you have brought to us. We love you! I love you!"
"Here it is Valentines Day...remembering the days you would bring me roses and give me a kiss and a hug with your long arms wrapped about me, like a warm blanket...such a sweet son "I Love you forever"....and wait for the day to have you do that again..Happy Valentines Day Angel!!
"I only met Ryan, once this past summer, but he was a sweet kid and had an easy going nature from what i saw. He sure meant a lot to his buddies. Cody thought the world of him. Im terribly sorry this happened. My heart and prayers go out to his mother and father."
"Ryan was more than just a friend to me, he taught me to slow down and appreciate the little things in life.
Ryan was one of a kind and I always have him on my mind, how can I fix this ? I can't stand that my friend is gone, I guess it's up to time..."
"Even though your time with us was brief your love and memory will stay with us until the day we cross the same bridge and meet your embrace on the otherside.......
Love you forever little brother."
"You are so missed ....my heart is breaking ...I Love You!!"
