Naya riveraher ex-husband, Ryan dorsey, broke his silence on his untimely death – and his tribute to him is heartbreaking.
Ryan – who is also the father of his son, Josey – took to Instagram on Saturday with a heartfelt message about his ex-wife for the first time since her disappearance and was later found dead at Lake Piru, throwing a photo of her and their boy with a long caption.
He writes: “It’s so unfair… there aren’t enough words to express the hole that remains in everyone’s heart. I can’t believe this is life now. I don’t don’t know if I’ll ever believe it. You were right here… We were right in the back swimming with Josey the day before. “
Ryan continued, “Life just isn’t fair. I don’t know what to say … I’m grateful for our time and our journey that brought us together and gave us the sweetest and smartest little boy. nicer than we could hope for. for. I remember sometimes you would get bored with me, “Ryan, can you stop chatting!” Haha. Glad I didn’t listen to you because I have hundreds and probably thousands of snaps and videos that Josey will have forever and know his mum loved him more than life, and how much fun we had together as he was growing up. “
He went on to say that the mere presence of Josey would make the bad times a little less because a piece of Naya will live on in him forever, and by extension … with Ryan. He added, “(Josey will never forget) where he’s from. We miss you. We will always love you. I love you Meep.”
Ryan went on to thank everyone for the outpouring of support, saying … “I’ll just say in closing, be kind to yourself, be kind to others, forgive … forget … don’t hold no grudges … .. if you have nothing nice to say, maybe try not to say anything. There is peace in silence. “He finished:” Time on Earth is precious and you never know … you never know what might happen. Hold your loved ones close and cherish the time you spend with your loved ones. “
Ryan was one of many members of Naya’s relatives who went to Piru lake in the days after her demise – even stepping into the water at some point to feel a connection.
They had a somewhat tumultuous 4 year marriage – Naya was arrested for domestic violence in 2017 after an argument over their child turned violent. She filed for divorce shortly after.
