In memory of Ryan Jacob Query
October 11, 1982 – March 23, 2017
This cross was built for a wedding. But today it was used for a memorial service.
Along the banks of the May River in Bluffton, South Carolina, we remembered the life of Ryan Query. He was an Army veteran, son, brother, father, and the fiancé of Julie Robbins. They were the winning couple of our Lowcountry Wedding giveaway, and they were all set to experience their dream wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. But on March 23rd–just a month before their wedding day–Ryan passed away unexpectedly.
Today, his bride, stood in front of the cross Ryan built–for their wedding ceremony–and shared her broken heart with all of us.
Ryan’s legacy lives on in their son, Caden, a beautiful baby boy who was born with spina bifida. It’s a health condition that comes with tremendous medical bills. May we honor Ryan’s memory together by contributing to the GoFundMe account set up in their names. Any monetary amount is appreciated.
My hope and prayer is the generosity of friends and strangers alike will brighten dark days and lighten the burden for Julie and her son.
