Along with the photo (shown right), he wrote a heartbreaking message to Gia: "Every second of everyday, I miss you Petrie. I feel lost without you but find strength knowing that you are in Heaven. Rest in peace my love."

This touching, tearjerking tribute isn't the first time Ryan's spoken out about his 29-year-old girlfriend's devastating suicide ... He also released a statement soon after the tragedy, saying of Gia that she "had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed."

E! reports that at the funeral, which was focused on "celebration of her life," Ryan sat in the front row with Gia's mother, Donna Micheletti, and walked her out of the church at the end of the ceremony. A source says he was "consoling Donna the whole time." That said, at least we can take heart in the fact that it sounds like Ryan and Gia's loved ones have one another as they grieve and try to find strength during this difficult time.
