Ryan Woods’ Memorial Service

I attended Ryan Woods’ memorial services last Sunday with 1,400 other people.  Words are inadequate to describe the experience.  Kevin, Ryan’s dad, predicted, “There will be lots of tears and lots of laughter and lots of remarkable lovely people.” He was right on all accounts. And it was just as Ryan wanted it.

Ryan’s work in building community with the love of Jesus has had a deep impact on people in downtown Vancouver and beyond. Several people summed it up well by saying, “A heartbeat was created.” Fitting new birth to Ryan’s story.

Ryan has been an inspiration to many and his story will continue to touch people for a long time.

Thank you for your example and dedication to loving people from all backgrounds, Ryan. You have certainly blessed my life.
