Most of you probably remember this story on this Tide fan from this year. I first read about it from Bama fans and then found out shortly after that I'm actually friends with his aunt.
Ryan has taken a turn for the worse and is now in a coma. They do no expect the little guy to live much longer.
Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers over the next few days.
Roll Tide, Ryan

Awful news, prayers to the family.
So sorry to hear that he will not be able to see his beloved Tide again. Prayers go out to his greiving family.
As someone with a child that was very ill more than once in her 26 years. I can relate, but I still can't imagine the sorrow of losing a little one. His life was just beginning.
May God bless and keep him close.

It's always so hard to hear of a child passing away. This story broke my heart back in November when i saw it on bol. This family seemed to be so strong. God had gave them the strength to help with his sickness and he will keep giving them strength everyday of their lives. I'm sure that Ryan and his family have touched alot of hearts. Such a precious child. Everyone give your kids a big hug and tell them how much you love them everyday because we are not guaranteed each second if each day. God bless this family in their time of sorrow. This family will be in my prayers! I know lil Ryan can hear and/or see this roll tide lil man!!
Prayer sent for Lil' Bama and his family.
Sad to hear of the passing of Lil Bama. At least he got to see the back to back show
