Ryan Michael Millsap born February 11th 1999 in Denver Colorado, departed from our lives on November 4th 2018.
Ryan was a lively, beautiful little boy born to Michael James Millsap and Deanna Lynn Millsap. Ryan grew up and went to school in the Denver metro area. However, he was truly at home in the mountains and the outdoors. He was happiest fishing at a lake or hanging out with friends and family and just having a good time.
His smile brightened any room he walked into and he could always put a smile on your face and make you laugh. Ryan had a unique perspective on life and was always on the go, he lived life on his own terms and everyone he came in contact with will never forget him. His smile, his beautiful blond hair, sky blue eyes and his caring spirit will live on in all of us forever.
He is survived by his parents, his older brother Trevor James Millsap, his niece Madison Millsap, his Aunts Shelly and Laura, Uncles George, Scott, and Eric, numerous cousins, and many loving family friends.
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
and all the fun we had
If I could re-live yesterday
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
would take the place of me.
But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne.
He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you."
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.
