We the Harris family are sending our deepest heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr Bryant he will truly be missed. Mr Bryant had a sweet and gentle soul with that million dollar smile and I never heard a harsh word from him.
I remember how he loved his motorcycle. He my dad (Sampson) and Mr Robert Howard would spend hours fixing and polishing their bikes making them shine brighter than the sun, I remember the motorcycle races what fun they had. I pray that God bless the Bryant family with peace during their time of loss.
