Dear Mary and family......
In times like this, I don't think there are words I could say to express the feelings I'm having right now as I write this....
I did get to talk with him the day before he passed and we were talking about Frank Wilson and never dreaming the next morning, he would be joining him. They are sure gonna be missed!!!
Bryant was a great person and I was so glad to have known him & had the privilege of calling him one of my best friends.....
I don't think I can ever forget him as he always seemed like the brother I never had.....
Our prayers are with you and all the familiy during this time.
