A message from Annette…

My very best friend Junior Briggs – I owe my life to Junior, several years ago I did not want to cook and Junior kept me eating and healthy. Junior was the most generous, loving and giving person I have known. He was good and wise beyond belief. I am so grateful he was my friend – and to his children, Rosy and Frosty and Gene and Kathy and their families, thank you for being yourselves, I love you all very much.

For those desiring, memorial contributions may be made to the Attica United Methodist Church or to HCI Care Services. Online condolences may be left at
