I have so many wonderful memories of Brie through the years. Always thought that there would be time for more.
Kevin you and your wonderful sons are in my prayers. Brie was such a loving and caring soul. From our days in high school and later when our kids were young she always had a special light. She could make any bad day brighter. I wish life had not gotten so crazy and we had stayed in touch better through the later years.
Missing you my friend!

Bridget was such a ray of sunshine! I was in Jr. High and High School with her, then of course, stayed in touch via social media. To her loved ones, I'm so sorry for your loss, and wish you comfort and peace. Bridget made so many people smile. May her memory be a blessing.

Christmas with my cousins at our grandparents’ house; Santa coming up the stairs and Bridget, at about 3 years old, racing down the stairs in her diaper to greet him. Bridget was so very good to Aunt Nancy (my mom) the last few years of her life, and I am so thankful, but this image will forever be with me. The pure joy of Christmas and childhood, and joy that I know she carried with her until the end. God bless you, Cousin.

The baby aspirin color sweater you, Judy and I traded back and forth all fall/winter 1981.

You were there for me when my Mom and Dad died....when Brad had the accident. You were always there for me. Always.

Brie: I owe it to you for the most embarrassing moment in my life. Following your terrible directions, I got lost on the way to the restaurant for your wedding rehearsal dinner. After several phone calls to you and the restaurant, I finally was able to get there - and an hour late! Frantic and panicked that I missed the entire event, I ran into the restaurant still shaking from trying to find my way there. The restaurant was packed! You had a large table with family and friends and they all assured me to calm down, sit down, have a drink, and not worry because they had just placed their orders. Wearing a long sweater dress over a silk top, I took my wool coat off to settle down. Unfortunately, my dress went with it!! Standing there in my silk blouse and underwear - with my dress around my ankles - the entire restaurant gasped! I quickly pulled up my dress and tried to compose myself, red in the face. Although embarrassing, I can look back and remember fond memories of us always having fun. Rest in peace, my dear friend.

I have known Bridget since Middle school and I can tell you that she was a very down to earth and happy person. She was popular in school yet was friendly to everyone no matter than social standing. I will always remember her laugh and incredible zest for life! I remember reading many posts from Bridget over the years and I was always so taken with how much she was in love with her husband and her never ending devotion to her boys! The best thing one can hope for in life is to leave a legacy and Bridget has a beautiful one in her husband and children. They will carry her love and the very best things about her throughout their lives. May her memory be a blessing to all who knew her. My deepest condolences to her husband Kevin, to her three sons, to her family and the friends she held so dear.

Bridget always treated me like just another son of her own. She made a truly significant impact on my life for the better. I always told her I would look after her sons in every aspect of life and that won’t change in the slightest. Bridget and Kevin always provided a safe space not just for me, but for countless individuals and it will always live on in my memory as a virtue of patience and true understanding. She will be missed dearly, but never ever forgotten. Much love to Kevin, Derrick, Logan, and Jaret.
