    Papa Bryant was a very special man. He had more life in him than anyone we've ever known. He had the best humor and anyone who was honored to have known him will attest to that. We will never meet another Papa Bryant. He will truly be missed. We are so thankful for the honor to have had him in our life. We will continue to pray for comfort and peace for the family and thankful in knowing he is now in heaven with Moomoo. We love y'all.
