God bless the Bryant family; they were the best neighbors I've ever had. Blanche was a wonderful mom and loved all of her children. Ricky was the one I knew best of the kids. I know you miss him but he has left you with many good memories.

I went to school with Ricky and he looks just the same in the pictures (even with the beard I would know him. It has been a long time and I have thought of him a lot thru the years. He looks like he was still the good person that I knew way back then. Big but with a heart of gold and a real sweet heart. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I pray that you will feel the the love and comfort of The Holy Spirit in the coming of days.
