Remembering Ryker

Mommy was going through old photos of Ryker cuz we lost him to a blood clot one year ago today (11/14/2010).

While she was looking at his pictures, she thought she'd better scan them in so she'll have them digitally, too.
We told her to share them on our bloggie, so here they are!

Ryker at 4 months with older brother Caleb
Mowzers! He was TINY!

Ryker at 5 months
We Tonks are a handsome bunch, aren't we?

Mommy tried to fix Ryker's LAZER eyes here = FAIL! MOL

Ryker liked to kick older brother Caleb's fuzzy butt.
Here Caleb's telling the Little Whippersnapper to STAND DOWN.

Didn't Work. (MOL!)

Mommy thinks he had the most amazing eyes. (This picture was not retouched.)
He was Mommy's baby boy. (We're her baby boys, too)
RIP Ryker Richman
January 3, 1997 - November 14, 2010
