So sorry to hear of Briggs' passing . I'll always have good memories of visiting him in Salisbury with his son Jonathan, one of my oldest friends. He had a quick mouth and didn't hold back but in a goodhearted way. I remember laughing with him and at times at him but it was all in good fun. he was a good guy at the end of the day who loved his family. My deepest condolences to the Clark family. Pat Hurley
