The 22-month-old, Ryan Roberts, passed away Sunday leaving a long lasting legacy, and forever changing the meaning of a banana split with the family.
The Today’s “Mom” page wrote an article on Ryan’s passing quoting Ryan’s mother, Diane Roberts, who wrote:
“At approximately 12:10 while I held Ryan in my arms and daddy held him as well – surrounded by so many who loved him Ryan drew his last breath. He is without oxygen, medicine, tubes, wires, and HURT – he is at peace.”
Today Ryan’s memory is engraved in the memories that families have created and will create by sitting down with each other, and enjoying the simplicity of a banana split all together. Check out the “Ryan’s Banana Split Party” on Facebook, and continue making memories with your loved ones, family, and friends.
After 94.7 threw our own banana split party, Ryan’s father wrote back to us commenting on the big event writing,
