Great Father's Day!

What a great Father's Day our family had this past Sunday! Trent, Tosha, and Cami Briles visited Faith Baptist Church in Trinity with Paul Dickie Medlin and Shirley Hill. My parents Jim and Cathy Briles visited the Briles gravesite at Guilford Memorial Park in Jamestown, NC. Rex Briles , my grandfather, is buried there along with his parents Ernest and Cora Cain Briles and his brother Ralph Briles. They also went to Alamance Memorial Park in Burlington, NC to visit the grave site of Carvey and Ivy Black Garrett, my grandparents. We then traveled down to High Rock Lake in Southmont to visit my parents, Jim and Cathy Briles who returned from visiting both cemeteries. The BIn hopes everyone had a great Father's Day!
