Family of Lena Bryant, May 12, 2017

To my GWRRA Family and Friends, I would like to thank you for your kind words of sympathy on the sad lost of my wife, Lena.  You responded with hundreds of cards, dozens of floral arrangements, many visits, phone calls, texts and emails.  Many of you attended the viewing, showed up for the funeral services, and/or rode in the escort procession. Your prayers and kind words during this difficult time have been a great source of comfort for our family.  We deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness and most sincerely thank you. My daughters and I will read every card and respond to each of you individually.  Due to the volume, please forgive us for not responding immediately.
