My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Joe Briede. I never knew Joe but I was best friends with his younger brother Mike from the 2nd Grade on. I have fond memories of the Bon Ton Shoe Repair on Pike St. and adventures with Mike until his passing. Now Joe and Mike are reunited. May they rest in peace. Dennis Kelley Las Vegas,NV

My husband, Steve, and I want to send our sincere condolences to Jack (Albert) Briede and all of his family and friends. We only had the pleasure of meeting Joseph (Jack's father) once, when Jack hosted the family's celebration, of his parents 50th anniversary. That day, we saw a large family who were happy to come together and celebrate the 50 years milestone. Jack, you are a wonderful neighbor and friend. We send our love and heartfelt compassion, to you, and your family, on the loss of your father.
