Robert Briggs last book, the Unexpected Joys & Trials of One American Life

Update posted by Diana Saltoon-Briggs On Mar 10, 2016

For those of you who've kindly contributed, here's an update regarding the book:

Moving forward in life without Briggs, the healing process continues to be centered on his last book, tentatively titled: Unexpected Joys and Trials of One American Life - Reflections at 83 and Beyond. A draft has been completed. The book now includes some reflections of my own, joining Briggs on his Alzheimer’s journey, sharing the emotional trials and gifts that this experience brought to us. Briggs’s last work is still his own and the poems and additions I've included fully complement his work. A few astute writers who’ve read this draft, say that they are certain of a wider audience for this work.

Thanks ever so much for your generous donation toward the book’s production.Another update will be posted soon.

Robert entered into my life during a period of great personal transformation and provided me with much needed support during those transitional years; so it is with much GRATITUDE and APPRECIATION that I look back at that chance introduction 25 years ago. Floyd

Briggs was an excellent friend, and a creative person with great optimism. Like all the good creatives I knew, he never stopped working toward his next project. He will be missed, but his example will never be forgotten.
