My Brother. You are at rest now. Your fight is over. We will take it from here. We will fight again together on another day when we ride that white horse in victory with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to put the Enemy in his place once and for all! Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. Brian and I were class mates. He will be missed by many, including me and my wife Karen. We love you Brother! God Bless!

Bryant Jr. and Sean, my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I was stunned when I heard the news. Your father was a great man that played an active role in helping me to turn my life around for the better. Both you and Sean were also active role model to my sons in their youth. I regret that I will not be able to attend the services but my prayers are with you. If you ever feel the need, I will be available for you. I can still be found on the sidelines at the gym. Love you both.

To the Family of Bryant Mark Thomas;

There isn’t any way to prepare for the loss of a family member. Suddenly, the loved one you had always turned to is gone. In the quiet moments when the hurt is hard to bear, may love become your shelter and may the beauty of memories become your comfort.

You have the condolences of the members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church as you make your way through this passage. It won’t be easy, but you can rely on the support of all your friends and church family. May you be filled with faith and hope even in the midst of inescapable grief, and find comfort in and with each other. Bryant will be missed by everyone.

Words cannot adequately express our sympathy, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Bryant must have been a remarkable person. Just look around at his family and friends that are here to celebrate his life and his Home Going Service.

“Don't weep at my grave, for I am not there, 
I've a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free, 
Playing tag with the wind, while I'm waiting for thee.”

In His Service Always,

Rev. Alfred L. Thompson
And The Members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church

To the Thomas Family,

I can only imagine the grief you are feeling as I feel like the bottom ha fallen from under me. While Bryant and I had not kept in constant contact, we always knew we would be there for the other if ever needed. Now that Gentle Giant is in heaven with Jesus and I’m glad he’s at rest free from the pain this illness brought him. You have my deepest condolences during this most difficult time. May the peace of God which passes all understanding surround each of you and comfort and keep you during the difficult days ahead. You are all my family and I am yours and I will be here should you need me. I love you all more than much! 💜
