My Sweet Robbie,
How do I compile your amazing 61 years into this? How can I, not just tell others, but actually show them who you are? We said, “Forever
Together,” and forever came way too soon. You are my best friend, my soulmate, my husband, my confidant & my knight in shining armor.
You are my back rubs at night and my sweet kisses in the morning. My “scratch card lucky bug” and my “Alex's House Junky”. (Stumante,
you need to name the sweet tea after Robbie) As your grandson Benji says, “My Papa is the Hulk.” You are my gentle sweet giant. Your love
for me and our girls is endless and you are the most loving and selfless man I know. I don’t think you really ever bought yourself much
because you always wanted to make sure we had whatever we needed and wanted. Your love, grace and kindness is felt by everyone
who you come in contact with. You had a way of making whoever you were talking to feel as if they were the only one in the room.
You stole my heart in that upstairs bedroom closet at Tar River Apartments. In Greenville, NC and we never looked back (remember opera creme
cookies on the couch) You made me the happiest girl in the world on May 15, 1987 when we eloped and I became your wife. Do you
remember that day??? Our wedding was like a re-run out of Andy Griffith. Me, You & the minister. He said, “do you have any witnesses?
We both looked at each other and you called your brothers, Kent (Nutt), Kirby (Doc) and Otis. Yes….. I said Otis. Within 15 min.
We had 3 guys standing there in hunting fatigues with shotguns and hats, me in my white dress and you in your suit. If only I had a picture
Fast forward to July 29, 1988, our first beautiful baby girl, Taylor Leigh was born. Then on August 7, 1990, here came our little peanut, Casey
Rai. On March 25, 1992 out came our fighter, Jessica Elizabeth, and on September 29, 1994, our tenacious Brooke Noel showed up. Our
family was a fairytale and you were our protector. I am so thankful that your wonderful brothers, Kirby, Ray & Kent shared you with me. The
God has truly blessed our 37 years together. It wasn’t always easy, but you and I together, “Team Bryson,” never quit!! It’s like that picture
I found, “A perfect marriage is just 2 imperfect people who refuse to give up”.
As I sit here on our front porch looking out at the gym, I am so proud of you. I am so blessed to have been your wife. You truly are one of a
kind. You fought the fight and now, sweet boy, rest in the arms of Jesus. We will see each other again someday. You will forever be with me and our girls.
We Love You Forever & Ever,
Leigh, Taylor, Casey, Jessie, Brooke, Benji, Kent, Kirby, Ray
