Briggs u have been in our family for as long as I can remember. I know you had some rough times and you had some ups and downs along this road of life but you still held your own along the way. Through out the years I can't remember a time that if I needed help and ask that you were not there to do whatever it was that needed done. Lord I can remember there were years that if anybody wanted to know where Briggs was just go to the old fence. Then time passed we all went our separate ways but we still considered and thought of each other as family.God knows my momma loved YOU like her own and my brother David Ricker ( bubba ) has always and will always consider you his brother. R.I.P Briggs gonna miss seeing you walking those roads. Gone but not forgotten
