What a wonderful soul! Whenever I saw Buzzy, Jean was not far behind. My family and I are so sorry that God has called her home but so grateful that heaven is her home. Praying for peace and understanding from God during these trying times, in our Lord and Saviors name, Amen.

It was around 1950, Buzzy and I were in the back of the Madison Heights Methodist church when Buzzy told me how pretty Jean Bryant was sitting in the choir. It wasn't long after they were married. We were friends and neighbors ever since. Sylvia and I send our condolences to the McBride family at this time of grief.

My condolences to Buzzy and the whole McBride family. My family and hers was linked from before I was born. Jean and Buzzy were a real light in the Madison Heights community. I know Jean will be missed by all of us who knew her. I have not seen her in a long while but it seems now like it was yesterday.
