Briggs West Memorial

Briggs Owen West was born November 7th 2017 in Norfolk, NE. A perfectly, healthy boy. January 18th, 2018 Briggs; almost 3 months old, stopped breathing at Daycare unexplained associated with Prone Positioning & entered heaven and gained his angel wings. He is on some amazing mission with our Heavenly Father, Flying high with the Angels.

In honor of Briggs and to show life can move forward we have setup a Memorial in his name.

1st Memorial goal has been met. We will be purchasing a Memorial Bench that will be placed at Embrace Park located right southwest of the YMCA in Norfolk that they are need of.

2nd Memorial Goal has been met and we will be purchasing a couple Owlet Monitors to be donated to Sacred Heart Early Learning Daycare in Norfolk.

Additional Memorial Money we will put towards the bills as they start to roll in from the day our Briggs got his angel wings (Ambulance Bill, Hospital, Funeral Home) (Over $15,000 in bills)

Thru such tragedy the community and our faith pulls together. We want to give back in any way we can in honor of Briggs❤️. We can’t thank you all of you enough for everything! Every dollar is making a difference!

Thank you for your memorial!
The West Family
