I’m not sure I knew this man but I loved his mom & dad, Mr. & Mrs. Albert Bryant. They gave me a wonderful bouquet of peacock feathers back in the 70’s and better people you can’t find. May you treasure your memories and try to forget the pain and suffering of dealing with cancer. As a survivor, I know how rough it can be. God’s blessings on you all. Love, Rexine (my mom & dad were partners with Ray Hargrave & Murph Neeley running Taft Auction in Mr. Steadman’s building). Their names were John & Cat Douthit.
Thanks to Ida Foster for posting on rootsweb the passing of my 4th cousin once removed James E Bryant. I justed wanted to let the family know that the relatives here in California will be praying for them all.
It is alwasy so hard to say good-bye to a loved one. Jimmy was my Brother-in-law, part of the time my Dad, and all of the time a very dear friend. Our last conversation will be cherished and I hope his advice helping me in my fight to battle cancer! I pray that the everyone in our family gets strength from God and knowing that Jimmy and my sister, Linda are in a place with no pain or hurt!
My heart aches for the Bryant family today. All of you have been so attentive to Jimmy’s needs during his illness and death. May God touch each of you and bless you with peace and understanding now and in the days to come. Much love to all of you.
