      We are going to miss you so much. No one knew this was going to happen. All I want you to know is it is a very difficult time for us to try to understand why. I know we will never understand why.
      You will always be in our hearts and soul, and we will meet you someday at that golden gate and we want you to be there waiting for us with that great big hug and smile you always gave to us. Also as you used to say Bryce I will have to teach you how to throw a ball… because your dad throws like a girl… You will someday be able to do that… So for now we have to tell you good bye and you are going to be missed badly by us.
      We love you very much our friend
      Love Andy, Dawn, Beau & Bryce

      I served with Ryan for the past three years, as well as a deployment with him to Bosnia. I was honoreed to be chosen to be one of the pallbearers at the funeral. He was one of the few guys I could feel I could really count on from our unit. I miss him so much, and I am glad I got to know. Every day when I pray I thank God for Ryan Ostrom.

      I had the honor of knowing Ryan when he was younger, and played all stars with my son. I also know some of Ryans family. Ryan went from a star then, to an all American Hero. Now hes one of Gods chosen angels. May his family and love ones find peace in knowing that Ryan is still with them everyday, it’s just in a different way now. Hes the angel that walks beside you all day long, every second of every day. God Bless you Ryan, God Bless Ryans family. And God Bless America.

    7. SSGT Ryan S. Ostrom, PAANG August 22, 2005 at 12:00 am

      I had the privilege of attending SSGT Ryan S. Ostrom’s funeral in Liberty, PA on 19 Aug 05. The outpouring of support from his community and our families was heart wrenching. He believed in why he was over there, and he put his love of country before everything.

      May those who knew and loved him be comforted and may God bless and sustain them.

    8. Staff SGT OStrum August 20, 2005 at 12:00 am

      I did not knoe Staff Sgt OStrum but he was an american hero. My best friend Spec. John Kulick was kia on Aug. 9th so I know that it is painful. My thought are with his family and friends. Thank you for protecting your country and keeping the american way of life safe. God Bless America.
