Investigators haven't determined a motive. The Bryants moved to Oregon from California last year after a falling out with relatives. Also, Robert Bryant was expelled from the family's Jehovah's Witness Jehovah's Witness

"Robert had questions about the doctrine he had been taught," Marshall said. The minister added that the Bryants were hopeful when they came to Oregon.

"That was the reason they left, to get a new start," Marshall said. "That hope is gone."

The Bryant family wasn't well-known to the people of McMinnville. But Bethel Baptist Church Bethel Baptist Church is the name of several different baptist churches in various locations, including:

"Had Robert known how the people of the community care, this may never have happened," Marshall said. "Robert felt Robert Felt (1953-2002) was a computer programmer, chess USCF rated Expert and champion Scrabble player.

In 1990, Felt became the first Scrabble player to win both the US national Scrabble championship and the UK Scrabble championship in the same year, an amazing feat that alone, and God did not create man to be alone."

Sharon Roe, the sister of 37-year-old Janet Bryant, Robert Bryant's wife, was at the service, along with a half-dozen other relatives.

Roe told the mourners: "If you are ever in depression or despair, please reach out for help. Never be ashamed to ask for help."

A display of mementos and messages to the slain children stood to one side of the altar.

Marshall said he did not know Robert Bryant personally, but he said Roe had described him as a humble man who put work ahead of pleasure and read his Bible every day. Roe said her sister Janet loved roses, and she'd fenced off her garden to keep deer out of the flowers.

Marshall said the family's fortunes started to turn around after Robert Bryant restarted his landscaping business.

"I feel guilty that I did not meet the Bryants and did not reach out to them," Marshall said.

Yup, nothing from the Jehovah's Witnesses or the WBTS.
Not an ounce of concern or love for the family.

How sad, and typical of the Jehovah's Witness cult.

What a wonderful testimony to the community.

During my many decades of association with Jehovah’s Witnesses I have seen a great deal, including each of the items I expressed to you. That you think otherwise does not change a thing.
