Thank you for your beautiful reflections and your support. My family and I greatly appreciate it. My Dad’s 40th Anniversary of his death was a tough one. We are truly grateful that he was remembered with a beautiful Mass.
This past March, one of his three killers was released. We will continue to fight for Justice and try our best to keep the other 2 in.
Please keep us in your prayers.
Thank you... Janet
Love and Miss you Daddy

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 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.

Your entire family, as well as the department and all of our blue family, is in my prayers. If there is anything I can do to help you can email me: [email protected] or simply send a message on the site.

Thank you to all who have sent in petitions opposing the parole release for my Dad’s murderers. My family and I are truly grateful for your support. We also appreciate the ODMP site for providing the letter and information. Thank You..
We want Justice for our Dad and want all three of his murderers to serve their full sentence which is Life.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart
