To the Johnson Family Ryan Johnson finished on top, a champion, and we honor his life. Menehune champion for the Palm Beach County District of the Eastern Surfing Association, he received his trophy by way of his surf buddies at the awards ceremony here in West Palm Beach on the evening he died. His new "Palm Beach County District Team" T-shirt will also be presented to you, having already been earned by Ryan, for surfing so well throughout this contest season. We'll see you all at the water's edge this Saturday at ten in the morning, in one of his favorite spots, the warm ocean at the Juno Pier. If there are waves, they will all be ridden in his honor. Waves or not, we would all like to paddle out together as a memorial to Ryan's life.

Hey, Its Danny Ryder, I wanted to say that I am very sorry about ryan.From the first time I met him up coast at seb. inlet at n.s.s.a , Ryan was so cool, so funny. Ryan ripped and i was always saying to people how good Ryan was going to be when he gets older. He was one the best on the CP surfboards team and i wish he could still be riding for them. From eastern's and the pier contest to just surfing with him at the inlet, I was always happy when i was around Ryan and i know he loved surfing with his dad very much. Its going to be hard to get over it, But some day you will see him agian surfing glassy, perfect waves up with god. REST IN PEACE RYAN

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Johnson-I didn't know your son well. He was one of the few that you could pick out of a crowd in the ocean and say "wow, that kid is really amazing!" He was looked up to by everyone. He was an unbelievable young man. Erica- I know that you're still young to understand, but always remember your brother is looking down at you and when you're about to cross the street, he's still there telling you to watch for cars. God decided it was Ryan's time to go and that can't be changed. He is in a far better place now. Be strong and help eachother out and it will be easier. My final destination awaits me up there with Ryan. Until then- My love goes out to the three of you, Brittany Thomas

Hello, I was very sad to hear about Ryan. My step sister lives in Jupiter and I was surfing both the pier and inlet down there recently and was thinking about all the stoked groms I saw out at the pier. I wonder if your Ryan was one of them.

My wife and I will pray for your Ryan to be having fun right now surfing his dream waves into eternity up in the sky.

Tomorrow I will ride a wave for Ryan. Our sincere condolences.

To Ryan's Family & many friends,

It's been a long time since I started surfing. Over forty years ago. During that time I never had the privilege of knowing Ryan. But after reading everything that's been written about him, I wish I had. Please accept my condolences over the passing of a brother surfer.

You and Ryan are in my thoughts and prayers.

I didn't know Ryan but most of my friends did. Like Jeremy, Billy, and others.It was a terrible accident and i can't understand why he had to pass on at such a young age, when he had so much more to live and experience about life.At least he passed on while doing what he loved...surfing!I pray that you get through this ruff time and realize that he is in a better place.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Although I am sure that I surfed with Ryan many times, I did not have the pleasure of knowing him. I wish I had. He was lucky that he had the chance to learn to surf. He knew a passion that most people will never feel. I have three young children and I will teach them all to surf. I just hope I am lucky enough that they feel the passion that Ryan felt. Never feel like you did anything wrong. You did not. All my love to your family. Doug Bogue.

It is a tragedy that Ryan died so young; after reading these comments and talking to just a few of the many surfers and non-surfers who knew your son , We will all celebrate the joy of having known and loved him for even this short time. Certainly the greater tragedy would have been if we had never known him. Today, my son and I will paddle out at the pier to honor your son. Loving thoughts and prayers are with you - Frank, Julie and Skylar Cook

Dear Johnson Family,

I really felt like there was nothing I could say that might help you at such a terrible time, so I put this card together to give some of the other surfers that knew and surfed with your little guy, a chance to tell you what a terrific kid he was and how much we all enjoyed knowing and surfing with Ryan. My family's prayers are with you.

To Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and Erika, I went to school with Ryan and we were friends. I wrote this poem for him.

Ryan was a friend who was smart, cute, and kind, And never really hard to find, He always had a smile on his face, And that's how we'll remember him while walking pace by pace, He was like a brother to some, But only a true brother to one, He had his time with us even though it was too short, But he left us surfing, his favorite sport, While he's surfing with Andy(Dicembrino)where the waves are great, We will see him again one day at heaven's gate.

Ryan we will never forget the smile on your face and the great surfer you were and always will be. We love you and miss you and you will always stay in our hearts forever. We all pray for you and your family every day and know that God and the angels and saints are taking care of you. May God be with you always. Rest In Peace.

I miss Ryan... Although i never knew him by name... I just remember everyone by their face... And I miss his face out there on the water... I went to the pier today and cried my eyes out just b/c he wasnt there... I now realize how much I miss everyone that never returns to the break... I wish he were there... But i guess there's nothing that I can do about it.. He was a great surfer and I miss him!!! I'm sorry things had to end out the way they did... I wish here were here! Jesse H.

I knew Ryan well because he was my cousin. Let me tell you that he was awesome at every single thing he did, but the thing I am proud of him most for is his strong faith in God and that he never gave up in anything. Ryan and I were baptised together because I am only about 3 weeks older than him. Ryan was one of the greatest, kindest, most polite, strong-willed person that I ever knew. He made a huge impact in everyone's lives and touched everyone in one way or another. He so much deserves to be where he is right now, where he'll always be happy and where he has one more great ability, to watch over all of us. This is a time of grieving for everyone, but eventually the greive will go away. Until that time, we must always remember that he is much happier where he is now than where he would have ever been. We all love him so dearly! To Aunt Sue, Uncle Erik, and Erica: I love you guys sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much and nothing will ever change that! I am and always will be here for you! Love, hugs, and prayers, the Ralphs

Johnson Family, I am so sorry about Ryan. Even though i wasn't like best friends w/ him i talked to him alot because he came to my line after school. He was always willing to hear what you had to say. He was really a cool person! You are all in my prayers!

Ryan and I where great friends. We told each other everything. We went to school together since pre-school. My mom and his mom would always say someting like they are gonna get married someday. I always loved him even though sometime we got on each others nerves but we always made up cause you just couldn't stand for the puppy face anymore. One day at pre-school Ryan Hanley and Ryan put sand down my socks and I cried i told him that this year and he said he was sorry for that cause he didn't say it then. I will always loved him and i will NEVER forget him. I wish he could be here right now cause i need him b/c he always comforted me! I will tell you one story that i cried so hard cause of ryan. Ryan played a trick on me and said he was moving to connicut and i cried and cried and all my friends were in on it till he told me the truth he i was mad at him and he worte me the sweetest letter if you would like me to send it to you email me and i would love to share my letter adn memorie i have so many notes from him too

To The Entire Johnson Family- I surfed with you Eric and your son at the jetty countless times.Ryan and Eric impressed me, everytime, with thier skill; enthusiasm; bond; and aloha spirit they spread. Eric, I hope my bond with my children, Zachary and Lily, will be like yours with Ryan. Ryan really is a surfing-angel. He will be thought of forever.

Dear Erik,Sue & Erika, I wanted to let you know that i am so sorry to hear about Ryan. He ment a whole bunch to me! He was my first boyfriend and let me tell you that he was the greatest.I remember when he called me he always told me that his room was 15x30 it was so cute i dont know how i could forget it. When we where going out in 5th grade for Easter we both got eachother the same exact choclate bunny but i got him his favorite white choclate. we both laughed at the same time and said "you got this from exards didnt you" and sure anough we both did.And in 7th grade we would always stand in the 3rd grade line together and talk until our rides came and we would always wave to each other our conversation was always about how we hated school and that we loved our friends there. I am so happy i was great friends with him and i loved him very much and i know for a fact that he is in heaven. i love you guys i hope we can still stay in touch! xoxoxoxox love always, Ami Cournoyer

Johnson Family, My name is Matt Dicembrino and I would like to give you my condonlences on your loss of you son Ryan. My brother Andrew Dicembrino was a surfer who died 2 weeks before your loss. Even though I never knew or met your son Ryan my brother probably knew him since he was a local to the pier. I know that Ryan and my brother are surfing in heaven surfing with all of the surfer legends. Just think of how your son died while he was surfing(what he loved). My bro died going to do what he loved(surfing). God works in mysterious ways but the most comfort is to know that he is with God and ALL the surfer legends and that God will at some time reunite all of us with are deceased loved ones. Something that has brought me some comfort and maybe you is this thing that was read at my bro's funeral, it stated, "In life some kids graduate from College at an early age of 13 and we call them gifted, well Andrew(and Ryan) graduated from life to heaven very early so they are also GIFTED. R.I.P Ryan

I've known Ryan since we were 3 years old in pre-school and he's always been such a great friend. I never saw him surf but from the stories I've heard, he's pretty great!!! And I just want to let you know that he'll always be in my prayers.

Ryan was the best friend anyone could ask for. He was one of my bestest guy friends and he was always there for me, he made me laugh when I wanted to cry and he kept me living when I wanted to die. I know myself and evryone else will never forget him. He was a great surfer,friend, and over all just a great kid, always had a smile on his face and living life to the best. I know Ryans surfing the clouds right now... even though its one more day since the last time I saw him, I know its one more day closer to the next time I will see him again, in heaven. Mr.Johnson, Mrs.Johnson, and Erika.. Im praying for Ryan everynight and I just want to say im soo sorry for the loss of ryan and you guys did a great job on raising him he was a great kid that no one can forget. RIP JAY! I love you forever and all our memories since I met you 6 years ago will always be in my heart for the rest of my life! Love you ryry!

Hey! My friend Vallery (ryans cousin) told me a lot about ryan and how much her and her family miss him it is so sad to me when people die. Especially at such a young age. I never knew him but from the sound of vallerys storys i am sure he was a great kid. I just want to say that he is in my prayers. And i am so sorry for the death of Ryan.

I had the great honor to meet Ryan. He was in my school, only a grade above me. Everyone loved him like he was their close, close brother. I also went to the same TaeKwonDo as him. I never talked to him much, but I did to his sister and she is as sweet as he was. He will be missed by all forever but he will always remain in everyone's heart.

Ryan, You will truly never be forgotten. Ricky and I are so honored to have shared so many unforgetable experiences with you(costa rica, bahamas)when I think of you I will always think of the smile on your face when spearing your first hogfish. Your laughter will forever be remembered when going down a line doing a head stand on the long board, and chasing iguanas. You always had such a big heart, that can only lead me to believe that is why GOD took you at such a young age. He simply needed you for a Friend he needed an ANGEL. You will be forever in our hearts. Margaux&Ricky

Dear Eric, I did not know Ryan, I never met him. I only surfed with you once at IndiaAtlantic with Ken Susterka one morning several months before the accident in Puerto Rico. If he was anything like his father, he was a great paddler and surfer. I wish you and your family a lifetime of happiness. Please know that each night I pray, I pray for your son. I believe he is their paddling right alongside you whenever there is surf. my warmest and most sincere regards, from Columbus, Ohio. Zin Min, Jr.

I hope all efected by Ryans life are doing well, and take heart the next time you are perched right below the lip and everything slows down and life itself stands still remember that someone, for many of you ryan, is connecting with you. Mahalo- God Bless

Eric, it never clicked together until the other night at St. Judes. I think its awesome how you still surf regularly. I never knew Ryan but I remember when I was first kookin it out at the inlet, everyone was torn apart by the loss. If you ever want someone to surf with I'll give you my phone number. Every time someone in this town paddles out Ryan's spirit is there. like father McNulty said last night. He didn't leave the party early, HE was the first to arrive. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Even though the years have past since your loss of Ryan I know the pain must still dwell in your heart all I can say that may give you some solace is that Ryan's live had touched many people and thus his spirit will live on. I'll keep you in my prayers.

I attended Ryan's paddle out that spring of 2000. It was an experience that I often look back on. There was several people at the pier on that calm day, and I am glad to see that people are still signing this card. I will never forget the sad yet strong look in his father's eyes. He told us all that surfing is all about 'brotherhood'. He spoke of peace, and the and appreciation of the lives we live. I will always remember those words and that day. Aloha -God Bless

i just wanted to say it was nice to see you guys at the surfrider foundation party the other night and i remember one day at the contest at the peir ryan asked me where he should surf his heat. i told him that you could get nicer waves on the out side but you'd be fighting with everyone else, but if you sat on the in side your wave count would be higher and you'd do better. i believe he got 2nd that mng and that was the last time i saw him. your family is in my heart, as so is ryans. and i know he's in gods hands and watching all of us!!

To the Johnsons, my son Matt Sabatino just won a memorial award at this years 2004 NSSA Eastern Championships. Even though he missed the final by .25 of a point, I am honored to have him receive this award in your sons honor. Matt does not realize the importance of this award at this time, he is only 14, but I'm sure as he grows and matures he will realize the honor bestowed upon him. I often think of Matt and the danger of surfing but I always know if anything ever happens to him in the water it will happen while he is doing what he loves most. He was the 2004 ESA District Champion in Central Florida, he worked hard thru his menehune years to get to this level. Next year he moves up to Juniors but with Ryan looking down upon all the up and coming surfers, perhaps he will send some good waves our way. I would like to know more about Ryan so I can let my son know what an honor it is to receive an award in his name. Peace be with you.

To the Johnsons, my son Matt Sabatino just won a memorial award at this years 2004 NSSA Eastern Championships. Even though he missed the final by .25 of a point, I am honored to have him receive this award in your sons honor. Matt does not realize the importance of this award at this time, he is only 14, but I'm sure as he grows and matures he will realize the honor bestowed upon him. I often think of Matt and the danger of surfing but I always know if anything ever happens to him in the water it will happen while he is doing what he loves most. He was the 2004 ESA District Champion in Central Florida, he worked hard thru his menehune years to get to this level. Next year he moves up to Juniors but with Ryan looking down upon all the up and coming surfers, perhaps he will send some good waves our way. I would like to know more about Ryan so I can let my son know what an honor it is to receive an award in his name. Peace be with you.

I never formally knew Ryan but as much as I surf i've probably met him at one point or another but from what I see from this card he was a very wonderful person but how I can really tell what kind of a person is comes from his family. I was at the ESA Awards ceremony for 2004 ((I think..the one at the theatre thing in west palm with the seventies surf film and HitShow and other bands afterward?)) and when his parents gave their speech onstage everyone was touched and the fact that donations are still being made in his name is amazing and you can tell he really grew up with great family values. I truly wish I had a chance to meet Ryan and I think he must have been an honest and wonderful person. If it's any condolence, i've always told my parents that if I die surfing, I will have died having the best time of my life doing something that I loved and those last moments would have been the best.

I never formally knew Ryan but as much as I surf I'm sure I've met him without knowing it once or ten times, but I wanted to say that even though I didn't know him I can tell that he was a good person not only based on how much everyone has signed this but based on his parents. I was at the ESA Awards Cermony for 2004 ((I think..with the seventies surf movie and sean tomson at the theatre thing?)) but the speech given by his parents touched every single person in the theatre and it amazed me how caring the family was to donate in his name. I truly wish I had a chance to meet Ryan he must have been an amazing kid. If it helps at all my mom is paranoid about me surfing and I tell her that if I were to die before I am old I would want it to be when I was surfing because I would have died doing something I truly loved. I can assure you that the last moments of Ryan's life were some of the best because there is nothing that can beat the feeling you get when you're surfing.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, I know I've never met you or your son, but I am genuinely sorry for your loss. And though I don't surf now or live anywhere near the ocean, I'm going to dedicate my the first wave I surf to Ryan. From what I've read about him, he sounds like a great kid and an awesome surfer. I would have been honored to meet him.

It's a tragedy what happened to Ryan. In school he was a great friend. He was a loving person to his sister and his parents. It was a shame to see him leave. He will always be missed. Long live Ryan!RIP
