Dear Bryant Family, I don't know if you all remember me or not, but I grew up with most of the Bryant family, whenever you all lived in Aliquippa, on Temple Street. Boy does that seem so long ago. I do not live in Aliquipps now. My Mom still does, and my sister, Rhonda. All of us "Edenfield Kids" are scattered all over the country. Dad passed away 2 years ago, and our Bobby passed a year ago. I check the Times on the computer about everyday to keep up with what is going on at home. That is when I seen the news about Dennis, or "Denny" as I knew him. Your family has my deepest sympathy. I will remember your family in my prayers. This summer. I had been up to visit Mom, and we all watched some very old home movies. In one of them, it was my brother Bobby's birthday, and Dennis, & Donald were there! Those were some of the best times in my life....such a nice and safe place to live. Well, I just wanted to say something to your family. OH...another memory I have is looking at a big white Bible at your parents house. I just loved looking at all of the pictures in it...your sister, "Sissy" and I were friends. You all had a big family, and so was my family.....we are still a huge family! God bless you all. Sincerely, Kathie Edenfield Clark

To everyone in Birds family, i wanted to extend my deepest sympathy in your loss. This guy was the kinda guy you could talk to for 15 minutes,and know he's gonna be your friend for the rest of your life. he was someone who could bring out the best in people, no matter what kinda person you was. If any of us ever had any troubles, we'd go to Bird, he'd make light of any situation ; we'd get out the guitars and play, or sit down and have a couple beers and talk, or just plain talk, and our problems would be solved. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him , by those who knew him, and those who just met him, cause he's already deep in their thoughts. This guy was a true friend and I for one,will certainly miss him. Walter Reynolds
