Sonny appointed me his Hernando Planning Commissioner for two terms. He never influenced anything I did, and I never enjoyed or worked harder at any job I had. He was an incredibly honest person who wanted only the best for his small town.

Dear Paul, Jennifer and family I am so sorry for your loss. While I never had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Bryant I have heard many good things about him from others. I know you will all miss him greatly and I will be praying for you and all the family. Love y’all my friends. Martha Tutor.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time. I attended Hernando High School with Sonny, having graduated in 1960. I remember Sonny well and I have lived in Wyoming for many many years, my infrequent visit's has always meant touching base with my fellow HHS graduates. With kind regards and thoughts.
