On 6/19/2010 my Brother Ryan McPhee was murdered, he was 23. Hands down the most difficult thing I’ve EVER experienced in my life. Ryan was the BOMB!! He was kind, funny, protective, loving…. He was like my Son. He lived with me and my Boys and they had a bond that makes me speechless 😓. It took me along time to come to terms with his death. I mean A LONG TIME!! It was like my brain, heart, and soul was so fractured that I didn’t know how to go on. His birthday is coming up, August 18th, he’ll be 33.
You know, it’s nothing you ever get over. It’s like a permanent hole in your Soul. Would he be married to Sylvia Clark and have kids? Where would they live, CA or AL? So many questions, so many thoughts.
If it wasn’t for Jesus I don’t think I’d be here. He pulled me out of a very deep dark depression and let me know: Jeremiah 29:11 11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
One thing about my Brother was no matter where we lived, he found a football game on Thanksgiving Day!! 🏈🏈🏈
In his honor I’ve established a Non-profit organization: R.Y.A.N = Reaching Youth Across Neighborhoods. This Thanksgiving will be the 1st of many Annual Flag Football Games in his honor. Location is TBD. Time: 9:00 AM Age: 18-
Ryan was killed standing up for a friend. He was stabbed so many times the Coroner couldn’t give us a number. 😢😭😓
I want to bring awareness to bullying and be a vessel for Youth, a positive alternative as opposed to hanging out in the streets.
