Two weeks ago we lost a beloved friend and fellow Up with People castmate Ryan Hansen. And yesterday my husband and I got to drive to Buena Vista and take part in one of the most powerful celebrations of life. Over 50 fellow Up with People alumni from around the world, along with many other friends and family of Ryan's, all gathered to sing, share stories, laugh and cry together. It was an incredible reunion of friends. Thank you Ryan for the light you shared with us, seeing the full strength of your impact yesterday was beautiful and bittersweet. We will all miss you. . "Loved ones who touched our lives. And too often left us too fast. But they're always with us, they left hand prints on our hearts. Their light gives us strength to get up and start again. Leaving is not losing, we win by how we live. Journey on."
