    This comes as such a shock; unfortunately, I wasn’t aware of the extent of Brigitte’s illness; on the plus side I remember her as she was a year ago or more when she always had such a kind smile and warm energy when she came for Sunday services at St. Matthews. She was also in our choir for awhile. I will miss her dearly. I offer my deepest and sincere condolences. Please know that you are in my prayers and thoughts. I’m so incredibly sad over this news.
