Johnny Knoxville to Ryan Dunn: 'I love you so very much'
Johnny Knoxville took to the Dickhouse blog to convey the feelings he was unable to share at the memorial service of his friend Ryan Dunn. His words to his friend are full of love and heartbreak.
Last week, Johnny Knoxville attended Ryan Dunn's memorial service in Westchester, Pennsylvania. However, over the weekend, Knoxville shared on the Dickhouse website that he wasn't able to say what he wanted to at the memorial because "the words were just spinning in my head. What came out were the mumblings of a man trying his best not to cry, and I wasn't even successful at that."
"I felt 34-percent funnier when I was with Ryan, but I guess everyone did. He had such a hair trigger laugh reflex," Knoxville wrote. "He wasn't incapable of seriousness, though. Ryan was a great listener. If you were having troubles, he was always someone you could go sit down and talk to."
Knoxville expressed how upset he was over Dunn's senseless death. "I'm becoming upset now because this isn't right," he said. "And I'm hurting!! We all are because we loved you so much and now you're gone."
Ending with his heart on his sleeve, Knoxville simply states, "I don't know what else to say right now, so I will close with I love you, Ryan. I have a lot of emotions swirling, but I want you to know I love you so very much."
Dunn was driving his Porsche a week ago after leaving a pub when it flew over a guardrail and crashed into a tree, bursting into flames. The preliminary autopsy report found that Dunn died as a result of blunt force and thermal trauma. Police determined that Dunn consumed 11 drinks before the crash, resulting in a blood alcohol level of over twice the legal limit.
We hope Johnny Knoxville can find some peace after losing his close friend. Ryan Dunn was clearly loved by many.
