    I just saw Bridget two weeks ago at the Antique Mall and she was her kind bubbly self, full of smiles. As usual she jumped into help me unload and offered her assistance in the future with any and all things. SO Bridge! We made plans to see her home, which she was SO proud of. She touched so many lives and the world is a better place because she was here. Goddess speed Bridget. Dance and Sing with the angels!
    Our condolences to the family. We are so very sorry for your loss.

    It’s hard to.imagine the Senior Center without her. I was fortunate to meet her there earlier this year. What a beautiful soul.
    She’s up there riding her bike and still helping others, I am sure. Nothing to worry about Bridget, just pure joy and peace for you.

    My prayers and condolences. She will be missed. I remember her growing up. She and her sister would be with her father Gordon at game nights at Harry’s house, all bubble and sunshine.

  13. Debra Diehl on July 21, 2015 at 10:23 am

    What a special person Bridget was. She helped take care of my grandmother for over a year. My mom and I adored her. Bridget and I became Facebook friends and I loved seeing her baking projects! She will be missed and always fondly remembered.

    Bridget’s passing is absolutely heartbreaking. I would like to extend my deepest condolences to Ceridwen, Chloe, Perrin, Becca, and all of Bridget’s extended family and friends.

    The thing I remember most about the first time I met Bridget 20 years ago is that, she was talking so fast! I must have looked at Ceri some kind of way because she said something to the effect of, “Yeah, she’s always like that.” Thing is, Bridget always had something to say that I wanted to hear. I will remember her for being opinionated and bold and outspoken, because I admired that in her which I hadn’t yet achieved.

    As adults, running into Bridget was always a quick exchange of pleasantries and catching up, but then we’d spend the rest of those precious few minutes tossing book titles back and forth; she was an avid reader and I was her unabashed book peddler.

    Bridget was a friend to many and so, so loved. May she rest in peace.

  18. Bill Schmeelk on July 26, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Condolences to all on this sad occasion. I remember Bridget best as the girl who rode my foot (she was quite young when I knew her) throughout the house and chasing her and Ceri in the yard. She is a fond memory of mine.

  19. ck on July 27, 2015 at 9:07 pm

    To the Hedman family, please accept my sincere condolences in the passing of Bridget. I can only imagine that this loss has brought great sorrow, and God’s word assures us that Jehovah God does care when we loose loved ones (Revelation 21:4) may you all find comfort in this wonderful promise from Jehovah God and keep dear Bridget close in mind as you await the fulfillment of God’s promise.
