My friend Maggie Renfro (center of the picture) passed on today [Aug 1] after a long bout with cancer.

Maggie WAS the life of any get together. The longer the party the funnier Maggie would be. The ever patient Renfro would smile while carrying on his own conversation with the guys.

I will miss going into her shop, Renfro's on Main Street, full of customers to be greated by " Ron Briggs get your goddamn mangy mutts out of my shop!"
