Mrs. Briggs, my heart broke when I heard the news of your husband. Then to also hear about your son my heart is weighing pretty heavy right now as I know yours is as well. My heart goes out to you and your family through this difficult time of grieving. My family and I are always here if you need anything!! I love you and I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine the heartache you are going through. You have been there for me since I was 15 years old so I already consider you as family. I am sorry I wasn't able to make it to the viewing but like I said I am here if you need anything.

Vickie and Family, on behalf of my family I offer our sincerest sympathies and prayers in your loss. Sam was Sam, always the same from the first time I met him. He was a people person, a proud and loving family man, especially attentive to his 'bride' and a truly Spiritual Being. Our loss is Heaven's Gain! Rely on your Faith, knowing that God has the final say, and your Precious Memories, to sustain you through your coming days of grief and sorrow. God will see you through.
