Jay, NY resident Norman Briggs talks about his early years working on the first ski center in Wilmington, NY.
This video is part of my Borderless North Special Edition series on the life journey of an Adirondack couple and their special connection to High Peaks Hospice. I can never be sure where a story leads me but this one has left a special place in my heart.
The Adirondacks are full of amazing people who look out for each other. It's a privilege to highlight these folks in some small way. My hope is that by telling the story of Norman Briggs I'm able to make a human connection to High Peaks Hospice. The organization is often not thought about until they're needed. Maybe this series will inspire you to keep them in your consciousness and spread the word about the important work they do.
Please feel free to share your hospice experience and/or leave related comments on the web and social media outlets listed below. Healthy dialogue always puts a smile on my face. I'm fortunate to have the avenues to share it.
I want to thank Luella and Norman Briggs for allowing me into their Jay, NY home and sharing their story. I'm honored by the bond and friendship we've formed. I'll be back for donuts soon! As long as Pastor Charlie doesn't eat them all first!
This series is dedicated to my late stepmother Susan Corneau Clement who received care from High Peaks Hospice in her last days. The peace, dignity, and comfort given to her and my family during that trying time will never be forgotten. Thank you.
