To the Griggs and Davis family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Time really has a way of catching up with you. Seems like only yesterday I saw Jerry standing on the porch up on Vincennes. My prayers to the family. In recent weeks I've found life can be so very fragile. I pray for strength and comfort to the family. Cherish your fond memories of Jerry, they will give you peace. Call on the Lord thy God and he will give you comfort.

Love always,
Keith Broadnax

Jerry Griggs was a neighborhood friend that I grew up with on Vincennes. I can remember Jerry along with my brother George, Delray and Willie from block always telling jokes and pulling pranks on each other as well as others in the neighborhood. What I remember most is Jerry's distinct infectious laughter. When Jerry laughed you could do nothing but laugh with him. Jerry was a fun loving guy who will truly be missed.

My love and condolences go out to the Griggs and Davis family 💗

My, baby brother, whom I loved & hope to see in the resurrection. No, sadness, sickness or anything to take away our happiness. We will have every chance to share love & grow in God's goodness. Life everlasting to come! Titus 1:2; John 17:3
