|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
