Nothing brings up memories faster than the passing of a friend and all-around good person. Charlie Briggs was such a man. He was one of my training officers at Ashland PD in 1970, and my first supervisor. In the years I knew him as a police officer, I never saw Charlie become upset about anything, or even raise his voice. He always had good advice for this, then young, officer. For Linda and family, please accept my sincerest condolences. Rest well, Charlie, and enjoy those those never ending blue skies.
