Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Please accept our condolences from the Bridges family. Val was a member of our family years ago. Val taught me how to fillet a fish on our fishing trips with my brother and husband. We have lots of good memories. Our hearts go out to you and your family. - Posted by: Hazel Bridges Baldwin (Friend) on: Aug 11, 2022
Val, I have special memories, first meeting you, to the so many gatherings over the years and unplanned visits. Keeping connected throughout the years and always knowing we can share a secret laugh on any topic when we were in the presence of each other. Time could pass without contact and it felt like no time had passed at all. Your creativity, love for nature/animals, and your opinion on people cracked me up. Thank you for being my friend! Love you lots and will miss you forever- hugs my friend xoxoxox. - Posted by: Lori Bland (Family Friend) on: Aug 08, 2022
