I am so sorry to hear of Bridget's passing. We met in sixth grade when Trisha and I walked across from her backyard to yours. I thought she was a cute and sweet girl with lots of friends. We had many fun times roller skating, going to high school together, getting our driver's licenses and just being happy to drive around on our own. Bridget reconnected by phone in recent years. She would share how much she loved her family. She will be greatly missed by all those who loved her.

Bridget was a very fine woman who was always fun to be around. She loved people, dancing and music and enjoyed the Wolff Brothers Band on Thursday nights at Bearno's Pizza. She was part of our Bearno's Thursday night family and she will be missed.

Dear Jean, Buddy, and Timmy:
No words could ease the pain of your loss I know. I was so sad to hear that Bridget had lost the fight with her illness. I just wanted you to know that I feel blessed to have known her and called her my friend and neighbor. I have many fond memories of Bradford Drive days...Bridget and me singing in my room holding a pencil as a microphone or when I made all my friends participate in my birthday talent show and Bridget twirled her baton and I sang "Love Child". Bridget was a beautiful person both inside and out and one of the sweetest girls I've ever know. She will make a perfect Angel. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
