Memorial contributions may be made on behalf of Mr. Bryan to the Broyhill Baptist Children’s Homes, 111 Sneed Drive Clyde, NC 28721.

God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you, and whispered … “COME TO ME.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Doyce will be deeply missed by his loving and devoted family and many close friends. May God Grant Him Eternal Rest.
