Uncle Archie was a beautiful, kind, loving man. All seven of Grandpa and Grandma Bryde’s children were wonderful people. What a blessing to be part of this family.

Papa Archie was the greatest grandpa I could ever have hoped to have. I always remember looking up to him and feeling so loved by him. Papa had such a servants heart; always ready to give, welcome, and comfort. I’ve never known a sweeter man or family.
I know heaven is rejoicing to have Papa Archie home, but we will miss him terribly.
My prayers are with the entire family and I hope they all feel loved and supported, especially during this time.

Heaven is a richer place with the home going of this saint. But my heart is a little sadder for the loss of the Bryde family, the last of the Bryde siblings. My prayers are with Aunt Pat, Archie Jr., Chuck and Kim and the rest of the family. May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus comfort you and give you his peace.
