  4. Dear Ruby, I read with sadness about the passing of Bryant, but rejoice he is enjoying better world and will be waiting for all of us to join him. I shall never forget his kindness to Link and the blessing he and his organization gave to us with years of Life Line service when he was still at home. It so relieved my mind that Link had a way of reaching someone when I was traveling. Bryant was a wonderful, thoughtful Christian brother, Ruby, and I pray for peace for you and your family during this time.

  5. Ken and I wish to express our heartfelt condolences to Ruby and the family. A sweet man has left great memories and a great void. We know that God has welcomed him to eternal joy. We will see him again someday.
