The twins were devastated by the loss of their mother.
Bryant did his best to keep the house in good order.
Callie spent hours crying at Shelly’s grave.
She cried just about everywhere else, too, even in the shower.
Bryant worked hard to improve his cooking skills so that he could further his career and, in so doing, provide for his daughters.
All that work, plus the emotional drain, took its toll on poor Bryant. It was a hard time for the Jones family.
