What does the exclamation point symbol on my message mean?

There is a white exclamation point within a gray triangle next to one of my text messages ... but, only on one of them.  What does it mean and how do I remove it?

The symbol means that a message you sent in the thread wasn't sent. Scroll through the thread and find any messages in the thread with the symbol, there could be more than one, and either resend it or delete it.

Does it say that it was sent? What type of phone do you have and which message app are you using?

You should be able to touch and hold on that message til a screen comes up with something like resend or delete or edit .

i have a samsung galaxy note 4 ... it does indicate that the message was sent.  It's appearing in Verizon's Message+.  If I touch and hold on that message it does nothing.  I actually deleted that series of messages; but, the symbol is still there.

I too have the triangle with the exclamation point in it next to 1 of my msg contacts, seems like it started last week after my S6 had a system update?!? I went through all the messages to that contact and they have all went through.
