  1. Bryant was a good friend,and neighbor…and the trusted building Manager of Lincoln Wharf for many years. Those of us who got to know him also knew he was funny and a talented piano player…and a loving Father to his daughter Emily….Our hearts and our prayers are with Emily now. May the good Lord hug you tight Bryant, we shall miss you very much.
