"I'm going to miss his teasing. He tried to block me out of the church the last time I saw him. Then he hugged me and let me know he was glad to see me. My heartfelt sympathy to Myrna, his sons, Joyce, Mike, and Nancy."

"Bryan, I will never forget the day I met you in Virginia Beach when you cane down to meet Chris while we were in the Marines. I could tell that very day what kind of man and dad you were and how much you loved your family. Years later it was nice to get you know you more when you lived in Jacksonville. Your son and I have bee. Like brothers since I was barely an adult and we still speak regularly. Every time we talk we give an update to how each of our old man was doing. Chris loves you so much and you have been a great example of husband, father, and child of God. Well done and finally be at piece. Myrna he loved you an much and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Jamey and family "

"I am happy to say I was given to honor of working with Bryan at Wedin International. He was a hard working man who enjoyed life and always made me smile. He loved his family and friends and they loved him back. The mold was broken when he was made and I’m proud to call him a friend. Some of my best memories of Bryan was the joy we had picking on each other at work. I always missed that and I will forever miss you. "
