My name is Shannon Devroy and I grew up watching Wrestling with my grandpa and have loved it ever since. I never thought I would meet anyone who loved it as much as I did until I met Ryan. He was a bigger fan then myself I learned some things from him. We met in February of 2008 and shortly after fell in love. We were planning on getting married in a few months. We fell in love watching it together, we would make out during the commercials because neither of us wanted to miss a second of it. It was the best! I never knew love like this was out there. In July of 2008 we found out I was pregnant so we decided to put the wedding off until after the baby was born. We didnt make it that far. I gave birth to our daughter London on February 25th 2009 almost exactly one year from our fist date and the day we met. He was the proudest Daddy ever!! He loved her so much and also took in my older daughter from a previous relationship. We were the perfect family. We moved into our first house in April 2009. Life was great, every week we would buy a new WWE DVD. I now have an awesome collection! We had the best year and a half of my life, it was perfect and he loved all of us with his entire being! Ryan was taken from us on November 7th 2009 at the age of 30. He had a massive heart attack! We made it to the Joe Louis Arena and seen Monday Night Raw in August. That was the best time of my life, it was my first and only time I have ever seen the WWE live. I would of posted a picture of us in front of the truck with Cena on it but my pics didnt turn out. But I have the memory in my head and in my heart forever. Every Monday and Friday night I sit here with his urn on my chest and I watch Raw and Smackdown. I cry,I laugh, and I yell at the TV and I talk to Ryan about why I am mad at Orton this week...lol. But I miss the cuddling and making out during the commercials. I know he is right here watching it with me and in the meantime he is hanging out with all the great Wrestlers we have lost over the years! Thats my story and this is why the WWE is and always will be a major part in my life. I will be a WWE Super fan 4-LIFE!!!!!

P.S. I still buy a new DVD every week and will continue that tradition 4 ever! This week is the Wrestle Mania 26 DVD!!

I feel deeply for this woman and I dont even know her. I cant believe he was taken from her and the children at such a young age. That just shows you to live everyday as if it were your last. My prayers go out to this family, and GOOD LUCK!!
