I was so saddened to hear this~ I remember Mr. Britt always had such a great sense of humor! He loved to laugh and I still remember that laugh as our parents had many memories together.. May prayers comfort you through the coming days ❤️

Im sorry Karen. We just lost our dad too. We went to Eady's retirement party a week or 2 ago. Guess who was the subject of a hilarious conversation.....Roy!! We were quite fortunate to have a person like your dad looking out for us. It was very apparent in his comically gruff fashion that he really loved his daughter! May the Holy Spirit comfort y'all the way we have been comforted. Love you guys,
Jim & Woody

I worked with RB for many years at UPS. He was a hardworking, honest, and good man. I was so fortunate to have known him and to have worked with him. Rest In Peace RB. Picture was taken 2 years ago at a fellow UPSer’s retirement party.
