This is very sad news.  Our family will continue to pray for the peaceful repose of Ryan Barrett'ssoul and for Our Lady's consolation of the Barrett family in their sorrow. Mothers all over the world are grieving with Mary Ellen today.

 I'm going to gather my children in this afternoon, hug them a little tighter, hold them a little longer.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.    And may perpetual light shine upon him.  May the soul of Ryan Barrett and all the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.
