    Prayers and thoughts go out to Bridget’s family. Bridget worked with me at Adams Inc. She was such a fun and positive person. Dedicated mom. We would work out over lunch at Lifetime Fitness and some of the classes. She loved working out and being active. Her smile will be missed.

    I was deeply saddened by the news of Bridget’s passing. I worked with Bridget on U-Haul CAT losses; she was one of the hardest working adjusters and she was all business when it came to disaster recoveries. It was a privilege to work with Bridget and getting to know her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and co-workers.

    I was compelled to read Bridget’s obituary although I had not had the privilege of meeting her.

    It is with mixed emotions of the sadness I am familiar with for Bridget to be with the Lord and the heart-wrenching loss for her daughter, family and friends. I am a post organ recipient so when I read she donated four of her organs, joy and gratitude consumed me. January 18th, 1983 I received a kidney from a complete stranger.

    With that said, Jasmine, what your beautiful mother did was precious and humbly.

    May time ease the loneliness aches to hold your mom one last time, and knowing the joy of others living, bring you comfort and peace.
