I am so sorry for you're loss breanna, and I am also sorry that you have to deal with all of these negative comments. People just don't understand sometimes, they only care about themselves and what's best for them, this is why our community is so messed up. People need to stop putting their two sense in and think about the bottom line here, a young boy who was loved by so many people has been taken from us way too soon, no matter what, why, or where it happened this is a tradgity. The community would be a better one if everyone could just stop and recognize what happened. Ryan was a truly amazing person Breanna and if you need anything you know the people you can count on. Stay strong and remember the good times, every time you think of him send him love and smile, we all loved his smile but I'm positive that he's looking down from heaven on you and that he would love to see you're beautiful smile as well. Love you breanna, I'll see you on Saturday -Elisa Windsor

Breanna, stay stong and I am sorry for your loss . I once met Ryan at the Selby marina where he worked and he seemed like a really good kid. This incident was tragic, a price he paid for probably being a bit of a rebel that night. I am 42 now with a great job and I live in a million dollar house here in Edgewater......when I was his age I had a fast car and I was a real punk..LOL. I appreciate Ralph's comments because he seems like a real professional realistic guy and by no means is he out to hurt anyone's feelings . If anything I will pass blame on that old 'rice burner' he was driving, even the best of drivers can lose control of those cars on an icy road. Ryan you rock !

Ryan was an amazing young man, knowing him many years he was a loving person and would do anything for anyone. Blame is irrelevant now, a young man lost his life, a mother lost her son, and a community lost an amazing young man. I'm sure everyone here has made a mistake while driving or had a close call. Don't judge- it could have easily been one of your loved ones. His family and friends need love and support not negativity. Breanna I am very sorry for your loss, I know what an amazing person he was. Anyone know when services are? -Amanda

I don't find the comments inappropriate either. Motorists have a responsibility to drive safely. How on Earth do you drive so badly that you hit a HOUSE? I mean God help any cyclists or pedestrians who happen to be using the road around irresponsible motorists like this. While it's sad that the driver died, he needed to be banned from driving if he had survived this stunt, and the fact is, he wouldn't have been, because our laws treat motoring as a game in which irresponsible drivers are given a slap on the wrist - which leads to stupidity like this. Had he lived, this driver would have been back on the road very soon, potentially endangering other innocent people. Car operation is a heavy responsibility. Cars are not toys.

"Succumbed to his injuries" means to die from injury. Add to the reckless behavior and the unregistered VEHICLE-uninsured. I'm not especially pleased the young man is dead but such an event would surely result in harm to himself, vehicle damage, property destruction and injury of loss of life to others. He was inconsiderate and uncontrollable.
