Balloon launch planned in memory of baby Ryan of 'Ryan's Bucket List'


PITTSBURGH - People will gather to remember a little boy whose short life inspired people around the world.

Ryan Roberts died last Sunday of a congenital heart disease.

Ryan's story touched thousands of people after his parents created a bucket list of things they wanted Ryan to experience.

Their message quickly spread on Facebook and it encouraged parents to appreciate every moment with their children.

A balloon launch in Ryan's honor is planned for Friday at the Texas Road House in Washington at 8:30 p.m.  Guests will be able to write messages on red balloons and release them in memory of the little boy.
