To the Briggs Family, Please let me extend my deepest sympathies to you at this difficult time. Ron guided me as a young engineer at GM Truck & Bus, which was the beginning of a long and special friendship. Our conversations blessed me for over forty years. Now he has finished the race marked out for him and rests with the Lord Jesus. I am truly fortunate to have known him, and you. Very sincerely, Jack Tubbs
