Janet Ryman Your father was a hero who gave all to protect and serve. He and your family deserve for it to be seen to as much as possible that this man serve his entire sentence. I landed on this page because I am working on my September upcoming parole report for 2018 and one of your dad's killers Barrington Young is up for parole in September and profile at www.noparole.org part of ODMP. At ODMP we believe that your hero had the right to know that Justice would be fought for, for him and family. While we can not guarantee he will be denied we are going to do all that we can to strive for that Janet I also had a personal hero, He was killed when I was 10. I also did the parole wars and that is why I am where I am doing what I do.

Miss you so much Daddy..
We will fight forever to keep your murderers behind bars. It gets harder and harder to relive these painful memories every 2 years to the parole board but I will do it until my last breath if it will keep them behind bars... XOXO Janet

As the Marine Park son of an NYPD officer, reading about Officer Ryman's death hits close to home. An article about two new NYPD Harbor Unit boats dedicated in his memory brought me here.

They say time heals all wounds, but we know this isn't always true. My condolences to the Ryman family.
