Ryan Thomas Cooper

"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - - myth is more potent than history - - dreams are more powerful than facts - - hope always triumphs over experience - - laughter is the cure for grief - - love is stronger than death."
- Robert Fulghum

My 26-year old cousin Ryan was in a fatal car crash in the Virgin River gorge this week. It is difficult to express the shock and sadness that I feel at his passing. I cannot begin to imagine how his wife and two little ones are feeling. I am glad to have known him, and that we are family. Ryan was a good man who worked hard always tried to do the right thing. He was loved by all the Coopers, and he will be greatly missed.
