So sorry for your loss of your brother. He was the more talkative one of the “twins”. Sat behind him in almost all of our high school classes.

I lived in Lee in the mid-late 70s, where I attended the Baptist Church, across from the original Pottle House, where I lived with my ex-husband, Merritt, and our two small children, Katrina and Aaron. I knew most of the family, especially Virginia and Bethany, who were/are wonderful Christians. I am so sorry to learn of the passing of one of Bethany's brothers. He will be missed.

Bruce, Brent, Bethany & Bert so sorry to hear of Bryant's passing. My thoughts are with you all. I'm sure that Ginny was there with open arms. Cherish the memories. Mama always talked about working with the twins in the potato fields. Nice, quiet young men.
