    Dear Family,
    My prayers are with you during this difficult time. I knew Lori and Waverly from Brother Harley Babbs church a lot of years back but always loved them. I always loved seeing them in Wal-Mart when I worked there. My heart goes out to you all but know that your Mom is in no more pain and she is now walking on the streets of Heaven and she is with her loved ones. May God Comfort You All In A Way That Only He Can.
    Love from a friend Pam Young

    Hoping that you find peace within yourselves to know that your mother, grandmother, and sister is in God’s hands and with her beloved husband, whom she has dearly missed. She is not suffering anymore and you all need to be a peace with that. We as an extended family for 7 years, tried to do what we could do for your family and was concerned for Lori’s well being. Thinking of you today and hoping that God is with you all.

    Dear Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about the death of Ms. Bridgman. We had many good conversations about the bible. She always liked reading the Watchtower and Awake magazines. She really loved her family and was so proud of her grandchildren. I hope the comforting words and prayers from friends and family help you through this grievous time. When Mr. Bridgman died I shared these thoughts with Ms. Bridgman and I hope they serve to comfort you also when you read them: John 5: 28, 29-regarding the resurrection hope promised by Jesus and 2Corinthians 1:3,4-the Father of tender mercies and God of comfort will comfort us during our times of suffering. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
