I consider Germaine and Bill friends of mine even though we did not socialize. I truly enjoyed her both at work and at the pioneers dinners. Always a friendly smile and always willing to help. Bill, I am so very saddened by this news and my prayers for you to find comfort through the prayers of all will see you in a good place. Please take care. Jean Danielson

Dear Bridgman family:

I wish to convey my sincerest condolences to your entire family. Losing a loved one in death is one of the hardest things that anyone will ever have to deal with. There is a great hope held out to us for the future because God promises to bring those we lost back to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. I hope this brief message will bring you a measure of comfort in this difficult time.

Dear Bill,
We were shocked and saddened to hear of your loss. Although we only spent one month of every year in Florida with both of you we came to know Germaine as a lovely, warm, happy woman. You both will be in our prayers in this blessed Christmas Season. Jim and Mary Ann McFadden
