Naya Rivera, Ryan Dorsey

Ryan Dorsey speaks for the first time since Naya Rivera's death. Your son will know that "his mother loved him more than life".

When Naya Rivera passed away a few weeks ago, friends and fans sent a lot of love and support to her son and the rest of her loved ones. Now Ryan Dorsey is asking for the same thing, since he's speaking for the first time since she disappeared and died.

In a long Instagram post, Ryan expressed how much he loves Naya as a person, as a partner and as a mother. He says that no matter what happens, he and her son Josey will always love her.

"I'm grateful for our time and journey that brought us together and gave us the cutest and sweetest smart little boy we could ever hope for," says Ryan. "I have hundreds and probably thousands of snapshots and videos Josey will have forever and know that his mother loved him more than life and how much fun we had together as he grew up."

He also sends a thank you message to everyone who turned to him and Josey for reviewing them during this difficult time. He ends his job by reminding everyone to appreciate the time you have with the people you love.

"Time on Earth is earlier and you just never know … you never know what could happen," he says. "Hold on to your loved ones and appreciate the times you have with those you care about."

Please keep Ryan and the rest of Naya's loved ones in your prayers, Roomies.
