Words of Comfort to the family may be expressed at www.sibillefuneralhomes.com. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Sibille Funeral Home of Port Barre.
Precious memories that we will cherish for a life time. Daddy(Troy Bryson), Uncle Boe, Aunt Fannie and Momma(Faye Bryson) took several vacations across the USA. Aunt Fannie was one of my favorite aunts, she always had a funny “crazy Cajun” story to tell with her deep Louisiana accent. So glad I got to come see her a few weeks ago. Praying for peace and comfort for Barbara, Marcel and the whole family. Love you all.
