Bryce Jr, and I grew up together in the cotton fields near Wingate, plowing the crops behind the mules. He had two, one for him and one for his brother Herman. I had one mule and we shared work. It was hard work but we have been the better for it. I will always cherish the friendship that Bryce Jr. and I shared down thru the years. He will be missed by a lot of people.

Bryce, Joe and I will miss talking to you everyday our dear precious friend and brother in Christ Jesus. How to go on without you in the years to come is hard to realize at this time . But, Heavenly Father whose All Mighty Arms you are in as I speak, will comfort us all and get through the lost. We love you dear friend and will miss you so much. Until we all meet again.

I am so sorry to hear of Bryce’s passing and sad that I will not be there to celebrate his life. He has been the perfect neighbor for over 25 years and I will miss chatting with him while we were both “doing leaves” He had such a gentle kind spirit and I knew he was always looking out for me. Rest In Peace, Bryce.

Bryce Jr. as we cousins always called him was always one of my favorite. Bryce and his brother would play guitar and sing to me when I was little staying at Aunt Ruby's house. Love the memories I have of Bryce. RIP Bryce with no pain anymore. Lots of prayers for all of the family,Cindy,Joe and Bryan.

Bryce has touched many lives. When we lived in Charlotte my Son could not say Bryce. It sounded like he was saying ice. The Children loved Bryce. He is gone to be with his Heavenly Father, He surely let his light shine before men. One day we will see him again. No more suffering or pain on this earth. He has a new body. We love him. He will be missed. Martha and Wayne Stallings

So sad to hear of Bryce’s passing. To not have him in the neighborhood will make it feel empty. Even though we will miss him on Easthaven Dr, we are at peace knowing that he’s with God now.
No more worries. Until we meet again, please save a seat in Glory for us.
Love Daniel, Sue and Ross McKenzie
