Some things in life are impossible for mankind to fully understand. No matter how long God has entrusted our loved ones here on earth, their sudden departure is hard to understand. We must accept God's will and abide by his holy words. The bible tells us that to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord.
There are many words that could be written to summarize the life of Ms. Diane Bryant, the daughter of Mr. Levi Bostick and the late Mrs. Carrie Bell Singleton. It is impossible to forget this beautiful life that began on January 11, 1968, in Hampton County South Carolina. She was referred to as a devoted companion, a great mother, an extraordinary grandmother, a loving sister and aunt and an excellent friend. And we all knew her and will remember her as “The Infamous DUROCK.”
We understand that God never makes mistakes and that death is not a mishap. On Monday, October 1, 2018, our Heavenly Father called our dear sweet love one home at the Medical University Hospital, Charleston, South Carolina.
Diane attended school in Hampton District 2 and was a 1986 Graduate of Estill High School, Estill S.C. During her high school years, she was one of their valuable basketball players. Her favorite song was “He’s Able” and “Jesus”, which she sung until her departure.
Diane had a very special love for her companion, children, grandchildren, and siblings. She always went to great lengths to make sure that her family was well taken care of, even if it meant neglecting herself. She always had a kind and loving heart. As time passed, she then became ill and her devoted children became her personal caregivers, until God called her home.
She was preceded in death by: her mother, Mrs. Carrie Bell Singleton; grandmother, Lula Mae Bryant; uncle, Henry Bryant; aunt, Mary Ann Grant and father in law, Louis Williams Jr.
