The Minor Family, December 2023


We had the privilege of meeting Ryan, his wife, Allyson, and their sweet daughters, Reagan (17) and Finley (10) on December 10. Ryan was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2022 and sadly passed away on December 22, 2023, at the age of 49, just before one of his favorite holidays, Christmas.


In less than 2 weeks time, we lit up their home for Christmas with help from SoDel Santa's; purchased and delivered birthday cards for Ryan to sign for both his daughters through the age of 21; assisted with assembling a vanity for Finley that she received as a gift from her daddy with a framed handwritten note from him that says "Stay Beautiful, Love, Dad;" and ordered a bouquet made from the book "The Wizard of Oz" to be gifted to Finley at a future dance performance.
