This week TODAY Moms lost a dear friend in little Ryan Roberts, who died on Sunday surrounded by loved ones. Ryan, 22 months, was born with Down syndrome and a heart defect and his family found out a month ago that there was nothing more medical experts could do for him. Ryan's mom, Diane, had asked all well-wishers to have banana splits for dinner to create a special memory in Ryan's honor. After a friend created a "Ryan's Banana Split Party" page on Facebook, more than 76,000 people responded, posting banana split photos from all over the world.
We shared some photos from TODAY Moms readers last week. With Ryan's passing, we have one more tribute to the sweet boy who his mom described as "Superman" and "Rock star" and who had one unforgettable smile. Thanks to all of you for sharing your photos.
