It was overwhelming to see the LAFD family at the funeral today in Westlake Village. It surprised many of us who did not know that Ryan had become a member. And the fly-over - unbelievably moving. Thank you for your service and thank you for your commitment to each other. May God bless, Paul and Candi Litchfield, Thousand Oaks.
