Ryan,

When I wear your memorial shirt, people ask if im a "cop". I say no, but the person who's name is on this shirt was, and a damn good one too!

I never met you, but I'm proud to speak of you as I knew you! Sad to have lost such a great Police Officer so young!
Watch over all of us, keep those streets up there safe!

Ryan,
Pages and pages of words from so many people trying to express their love, respect, and hurt. Even in tribute to you, I know words alone cannot capture the depth of emotion felt by those who knew you, those who mourn for you, and those who wish they had known you. I, like so many others, wish I had known you. I attended your service with my department's Honor Guard; it was an amazing sight and has left a deep impression with me. More than anything, I hope your family (both the Bonaminio family and your RPD family) are in some way comforted by the words left here by so many. Forever a hero and never forgotten.

Hey brother,

I had the honor of attending your funeral, and I have to say that I am very sorry we never met. After learning a little bit about you from your family and friends, I think you and I had a lot in common. After walking bordering beats there for a while, I'm deeply sorry we never crossed paths. I know I would have benefited from a friend such as yourself. I was deeply moved by your service, and honored to take part in the procession after. I was absolutely blown away by the amount of people who were lining your streets to honor your sacrifice. You could tell they were there for you because of the man you were, and the way you lived your life. As I said, I was deeply moved. As a result, I have been inspired to live my life in such a manner to go the extra mile help others on daily basis to the best of my ability. I am happier for it, and I thank you for showing me that. Nothing can make right what has happened to you and your family, but I want you to know that we all think about you out here, and we know you are with us. I know you are watching over us. Rest in peace brother. See you later.

Ryan, I have never met you, yet I think about you on a daily basis. It upsets me that your life was taken too soon, and so tragic. I have several friends that worked with you. I feel like I know you from reading about you and hearing what a great guy you were. To me, you are the perfect example of a, "HERO." It wasn't how you died, it was how you lived...I attended your funeral, and it was absolutely amazing. Live it up in Heaven Ryan...Keep an eye out for us down here!

Another true hero lost. God bless this officer & his family. It breaks my heart to know he was a military police officer & survived the war only to have his life taken by an American coward. May the department heal with God's care & God bless all the Herod who put a badge on daily!

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Ryan was tragically killed.

To Officer Bonaminio's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith.

It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. To his parents, I share your anquish in losing a beloved child which is surely life's greatest sorrow, and I hold you in my heart's embrace. Ryan will always be honored and revered.
