There are so many memories of the Bryant family from my days at Shadowlawn Baptist Church. The people from Shadowlawn were like one big family. The Bryant family is so special to me and the many others that they have touched over the years. Inez always had smile and hug for her family and friends and she and Grady were unchanging and their love was so evident in their lives and service for many years. The family has lost a wonderful lady but God has gained another angel to be with him. My love to all of you during this time of sadness. We will see our loved ones again one day.
