Who wouldn't, like and love a gentle soul like Bridget? I loved her and am proud to have called her my friend. We are all better for knowing Bridget, and for seeing how deep and wide her love is for our Lord Jesus and God the Father was and is.

When King Lear dies in Act 5,  do you know what Shakespeare wrote?   He's wrote, "He dies." That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of one of the most influential work of dramatic literature is: "He dies." It takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with "He dies."   And yet every time I read these two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it's only natural to be sad, not because of the words "He dies," but because of the life we saw. And with Bridget's passing, It's only natural to be sad because of her life that we all witnessed and shared prior to the words - "She died." Bridget lived all five of her acts, her work here has been completed and God has called her home. I am not asking anyone to be happy that she has departed. I'm only asking that we turn the page, continue reading... and let the next story begin. Continue Bridget's legacy in your own story - the story that she has had and will continue to have such a big part in writing. She lives on in all of us - in our hearts and minds - in the impact she has had in all our lives. And if anyone ever asks what became of Bridget, relate her life in all its wonder and glory, and the change she has made in "your story" and end it with a simple and humble "she died, but her spirit lives on." Bridget, I will miss your warm hugs, gentle heart and kind words. Thank you for all you have done for me. You were just like a mother to me. You really had a positive impact on my life and I love you. My sorrow is eased knowing you are now in the presence of God. Love always, David

I will never forget Rev. Bridget singing "My God is Real" at Discipleship Unlimited prison retreats! There was no doubt that she knew it deep within her soul. The anointing of the Spirit was always upon her and her love for the Lord was contagious resulting in much fruit borne for the Kingdom of God. Deepest sympathies to the family and to Dr. Susan...

I have had the pleasure of witnessing the impact Reverend Bridget had on the "Women"s Life Group" she ministered at City on a Hill. The way the women walked in to the meeting souls in need of comforting words and walked out with their heads held high and a look of peace washed over them, it was very inspiring, and the meals were great also my favorite were the deviled eggs, your uplifting words of encouragement will live forever in the lives you touched.To her family "When someone you love becomes a memory that memory becomes a treasure"...

To her loved ones may the God of peace keep your hearts in Christ Jesus and the Father's love. Bridget was quietly gentle, loving at all times, loved her family, being Mom, grandmother & Aunt but her love of her Lord Jesus Christ was remarkable in serving others. Bridget's love of others with great care was overwhelmingly gracious and real. She will be sorely missed. What she did in the Name of the Lord is seed well planted. Bridget and Susan in ministry together cared for many. To sleep and wake in heaven what a glorious thing.

Lotsa love & condolences to my cousins. So many great memories and blatantly honest chats we always had, while talking about cooking & 5 other things at the same time. My Auntie B was 1 of 3 of my mom's sisters that helped raise me, I will forever be grateful.

Rev. Bridget is an angel that was sent from God. She helped me while I was in the darkest place in my life and inspired me in so many ways. I also had the opportunity to witness her motivate, inspire and encourage countless other women to belive in themselves. She was someone who touched my life in such a positive way and I am so thankful I had the chance to meet her, know her, laugh with her, hug her, eat good Chinese food together, enjoy her delicious home-cooked meals, and so much more! I know exactly where she is now.. and that brings me peace to know she is in Heaven. To the family and Susan, you are in my thoughts and prayers and if you need anything at all, please let me know. I love you all.
