This gorgeous little boy is named Ryan Cruz. Apparently he passed away and today was supposed to be his 4th birthday. @babyboybakery is the username for his moms Instagram account and through some browsing it seems he passed away in may I believe. From what I have read he got hit by a car while running into the street after a frisbee. Poor thing. Apparently red balloons are his thing... This the hashtag #redballoonsforryan while browsing that hashtag I came across this photo:
Do you know why I posted this? That stone and those plants were all too familiar. It hit me immediately without a doubt in my mind. This little boys name was added to a stone in the children's healing and memorial garden in Garfield park in south Pasadena. Genesis garden. Wow. What are the odds. I know I will find his name next time I go and leave a flower.
