    I just want to start off by saying thank you to everyone for all the love and support and for coming out to celebrate the life of my mom Colleen Ann Ryan. My mom was a very free spirit who rarely cared what other people thought of her. She loved to wear crazy hats, lay out in the sun for hours, and start conversations with random people at the grocery store. I can’t remember the last conversation I had with her but I consider that a good thing. Because now, instead of criticizing my last words when I hear her name, I’ll reminisce about Saturdays at the baseball field, homework time at the dinner table, and all the times she would sing to me at 2 in the morning even though I had school the next day. Anyone who was meeting my mom for the first time, I would always offer this fair warning. Do not ever let her tell you a secret. It only takes once to learn that lesson. If there was one thing she would want me to take from her it would be the “3 Rules of Life”. “Always grab your ass with both hands; Be able to fight your way out of a wet paper bag; And never fuck up a free lunch.” My mom was the strongest women I know with a big heart to follow. I aspire to one day have just half of the strength and compassion that she possessed. I would not be the man I am today without her, and she would not be the women she was without all of you. And for that I am extremely grateful and proud to call her my mom. Joe, I have said this from day one. You are the man! Thank you so much for making my moms last moments on the earth great. Mom, I love you with all my heat and I will miss you terribly. To Colleen Ann Ryan, my mom.
