Linda was loved so much by our family. There was never a dull moment when she was around and she always brought a smile to our Dad's face. He loved her as if she was his daughter. We were so blessed God sent her to us to take care of our Dad, Jack Bryant,Sr. We are sorry for this great loss but we know Linda was an angel on earth and now she's joined all her loved ones in Heaven. She will be greatly missed.

With love,

Jane Bryant Lawson & Jack D. Bryant, Jr. (as well as all of our extended family that got to know her)
