  4. Marie Popplewell :

    Thanks, Bridget, for sharing Sandy’s obituary with us miles away. My thoughts are with you and your family as you mourn his loss. My notions of you and Sandy as a couple were reinforced by the obituary. Together you were adventurous and did not miss your opportunities to come to a “new land”, raise a wonderfully close family, and see the world. I know that you will carry on in that well established tradition. And while you will have to slow down to rest and recover from what must seem such a whirlwind of grief, I know you will get the wind back in your sails and carry on such that Sandy would have been most proud of you.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
