    When you Known someone for Almost 40yrs you tend to not Realize the Impact they have in your Life and Around you(especially when it came to Dominoes). Mr. Haynes Hunter definitely Had that IMPACT. He always told me Know matter how many kids I Have, Just do Right By Them….I definitely will be looking for him in the Afterlife for a Game of Dominoes…We lost a Real One

  • Cherene Briggs says:

    My uncle Haynes is everything to me. MORE like a father, he took my brother and I under his wings, and raised us up, giving us time, love, wisdom, guidance, and so much more, as if we were his children. You see my uncle Haynes was unique. Unlike any other. Standing alone, he single-handedly used two words,tough enough, to inspire, and empower, and for that, I am forever grateful. Forever, I will always love you. You done too well. You’ve done too good. You too tough uncle! Rest now….your special niece, Cherene Lyvonne.

  • LaNeesa Cornelius says:

    Take your rest Uncle. Know that you have done an immaculate job here with your family (immediate and extended). We will never forget you nor your teachings. We will make sure that you will live on forever in our repeated stories and vivid memories that we will continue to share with everyone we come in contact with…especially our babies. I am forever grateful for you to have loved me, and I will miss hearing you affectionately calling me “Niecey” and “NieceyPoo”. LaNeesa

    Love Always and Forever your boy Relly Keigh

  • Tony Briggs says:

    Congratulations Unc you made it. I appreciate the work and wisdom you left behind that are in my Dad, uncles, and aunties that will help us keep being the better versions of ourselves. Now it’s up to us to pass that wisdom down and build up our works in this earthly realm until we reunite in the the spirit realm through Jesus Christ. Until next time.

  • Gracie Briggs says:


    I’ve reflected so much on my time with you and I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. I think about how thankful I’ll always be for the lessons I’ve learned from you. Important lessons. Life lessons. Lessons that I’ve passed down to my kids to carry them through, encourage them, and guide them like you’ve guided me. You always simplified things for me. Boy. I’d be running a hundred miles an hour -going no where fast- and you’d just laugh (heartily) and fix everything for me with a sentence or two. Whether it was people or plants…everything flourished around you. Everything you touched grew. I grew because of you.

    You’ve planted strong seeds inside of my heart. You showed me my worth when I didn’t see it. My strength when I couldn’t find it, and courage to stand on decisions that were hard for me to make. I still hear your voice talking to me. You left this world but you will always be with me.

    As we celebrate you’re life today, I just wanna say thank you, Uncle. Thank you for everything you planted inside of me. I got it. No more calling lemons, oranges. No more leaping before I look to see what it is I’m getting myself into. I see it all so clearly now. I get it. Thank you for your wisdom and your long labor of love. Thank you for walking me down the aisle to join your Relly Keigh. Thank you for raising him and teaching him the lessons that he needed to navigate our family through this life…to endure…to stand on what’s right.

    I love you uncle.

    Until we meet again, rest in God’s perfect peace.

    Gracie Briggs
