Posted by Addy's Mom

From FB
I know some of Addy's and my mutual friends had been asking for the following information.
Posted just a bit ago by Addy's mom:

"The earth is still shaking under my feet! I guess that never stops.

After much discussion, we have decided to have a small memorial in the near future, and I would ask anyone to please make a donation in Bridget's name to your chosen charity in lieu of flowers.

Or, she would like you to plant a flowering bush or tree near your house to remember her by.

Bridget always gave to anyone needy. Her favourite charities were:

SAINTS (or anything to do with animals)
Doctors without Borders
the CF Foundation
St. Paul's Hospital Foundation.

But she would want you to go with your heart on this. I think she would have like an old fashioned New Orleans Funeral, with jazz playing in the street as the cortege passed by! That would have been her style.

I know Bridget had many friends online and off. We feel your love and pain. For those online, please think of her laughing and follow your hearts to help celebrate her truly remarkable life and love of everyone.

"For there is nothing which is lost which cannot be found if sought." Edmund Spenser.

This is beautiful. I can see her daughter in here - and the beauty of that daughter's soul, as well as the beauty of her mother's soul.

Thank you for posting this D. I have been wondering how best to honour her. Now I have some ideas. She really did give to those in need.

She did. I think I'll donate to a CF org through justgiving.org (so I don't get spammed later)

I would totally attend a New Orleans funeral if I were in her area!

I think I will probably do something similar, Diane. Thanks for posting this. I think I'm about done with Facebook.

FB is getting so toxic. I do use it for local announcements and goings on and friends that aren’t anywhere else but other than that, I’m here

I hope you might post more here on LJ? I’d love it if more folks return. Maybe more of the HP gang again

I think Facebook made me a bad LJ friend indeed. Maybe I will start to post more on here now. I'd love to see more of the old crew come back. *hugs*
