In lieu of flowers, the family would like memorials sent to Donald Briggs, Jr. at 1627 Whitney Drive, Appleton 54914. God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put His arms around him and whispered come with me. With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and saw him fade away. And though we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest; God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. Donald would like everyone to remember to "KEEP THE FAITH".
