    The Bridges Families,
    I want to extend my deepest sympathy to all of you on the passing of Kelly. Kelly was 11 years older than me but I do remember him when he was in High School. He was always nice and friendly to everyone that he came in contact with and always smiling too. Wonderful memories of Kelly. So sorry for your loss. My prayers/thoughts are with all of you. May God bless all of you.
    In Christian Love,

    Amee and Rory, it was an honor to know both of your parents, and be apart of Kelly’s last days. He recognized your names, his eyes would widen and turn to me as I said your names. All the way back to my elementary days with Rory, I remember Kelly, his friendly smile, his support at our music programs and athletic events. What a great legacy he lived and that must be carried on. Thinking about both of your families and praying for God’s peace.

    Amee and Rory, your dad was a great man. From first grade with you Rory, through my experience with him recently. He loved you two. His eyes brightened at the sound of your names. Lean in to one another. Family is everything and Debbie and Kelly were great examples. Love you guys, and my deepest condolences!
