Becky and Mrs. Bryan: I was so sad to hear of Billy's death. I guess the last time I saw him was at Becky's New Year's Eve wedding years ago. I'll always think of him as a little boy. I remember when we were all Sunbeams at the old FBC in Hattiesburg. My mother, Frances Bryant, was the leader. We met on the first floor of that old church. Dr. Bryan came in one day and asked, "How are all the Sunbeams? Whoops, there go two out the window!" The two diving for freedom were Billy Bryan and my brother, Tommy Bryant. Sweet memories. God comfort you and yours. Dr. Bryan baptised my brothers and me and conducted the funerals of my grandfather, E. Wheeler Bryant, and my father, Giles W. Bryant. Lots of connections with the Bryans. All of my best, Ann Bryant Whittemore

I was one of his students at Belhaven. He was my favorite teacher. He was open minded, kind, respectful and considerate. He encouraged students to not be judgmental of others. He would captivate us with stories from his business and experience. The best part was that his stories were not just entertaining, they were very useful and practical in the business world. His class was not easy, but it was a wonderful experience. When teaching he would throw in stories about his family, and he spoke about them with great love, especially for his mother. I learned a lot in his class. He was so personable and friendly. I'm very saddened by his passing. My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends.

Billy's passing makes me even more grateful for the opportunity of visiting with him at our last high school reunion in 2010. My fondest memories, however, are growing up with him at First Baptist Church, along with David Berry & Johnny McCann. His father conducted my mother's funeral in 1969, when she unexpectedly passed away. I'll always remember Billy with a smile on his face, a friendly greeting and an ability to make you feel special during each & every conversation with him. I was so shocked to learn of his passing, the first of our classmates to leave this life with whom I shared a long & rich history. My heart is heavy with the knowledge that he's already left this earth. Please know there are so many of us from high school & church that are thinking of & praying for all of you at this painful time. He was truly a good man in every sense of the word. He touched so many lives & his spirit lives on. My deepest condolences to his family and bride-to-be for this untimely loss.
