Saying goodbye to my lifelong friend. Bryant and I met on the baseball diamond and it's there we would cement our friendship.
We shared many summers playing our hearts out, and if ever I knew a man that could have went pro, it was Bryant.
One of our/his favorite stories was during a pony league game. Our first year ever playing in apposing teams.
Bryant was late to the game and in shorts. His coach was just short of furious lol.
I was on the mound and I was slipping balls past his teamates for a couple innings when his coach let go of being so mad and put him in to play.
Bryant let the first fast ball go by as we most always did. Never swing at the first pitch coach would always say.
Second pitch I watched that ball sail over the left field fence. Then I watched Bryant trot around the bases in his shorts and jersey.
Pride a little hurt I finished the inning and got back in my groove. Next inning here come Bryant again, to this day I'm not sure why I threw him the meat fast ball I did lol. He cranked that ball over the green giant out back of the curling club.
His favorite part of telling the story was that the kids couldn't even find the ball lol.
Guessing it went in the river lol. Needles to say coach let me finish the inning but he knew I'd been rocked.
Bryant's friendship was always true and never without truth, if he knew I needed to be told something, he never shied away from telling me. A true friend through and through!
We spent a great many years hanging around and I'll forever cherish them. Going to miss sitting around a fire while he got the grub going on the grill.
He took a lot of joy in being with friends and family and his ability to entertain was truly a passion.
I'm proud to have been his friend and will always cherish being his eldest daughters godfather.
Curtis Bryant McNeal you will forever be missed and until we meet again give Annie and my mom a hug.
Love you my brother Rest In Peace.

Bryant was a friend of mine for the past 35 years. More so a brother. We went through some bad times and some very great times together. I remember being with him when his son Jeremy passed and when his mom Annie passed. He was there for me when my dad passed and he spoke some very kind words at my dads funeral and i always appreciated him for that. But the fun times out weighed the bad times. I remember he was always up for some fun whether it be a fishing adventure or a cookout in his yard. He was up for hosting a cookout and just being with friends and family and having fun. One of my last memories will be just walking around with him on a sunny day reminiscing about old times and the fun we had. We will not enjoy our plans we had for this summer of fishing my friend. The one thing i am grateful for is Bryant will no longer be suffering and sick although he wont be here with us his spirit will. So for his friends when your out fishing or having a cookout think of him and remember the fun we had with him. Bryant i am sure you are with your son and mom and you three are happy and smiling down on us. Goodbye my friend you will be missed.

Bryant was a friend of the family. He was always very polite and respectful. Especially to our mom. He had old fashioned traits that seem to be disappearing in today's age.I will miss his great smile and firm handshake. Have a safe journey my friend
