My sincere sympathy to Brigid's family. She gave her heart and soul to the American Legion. She could be tough on the outside at times, but always had a heart of gold. I will miss her.

Brigid lived across the street from my parents for many years. She showed them tremendous thoughtfulness and support through some tough times at the end of their lives. She was truly a special person whose kindness was greatly appreciated. Rest in peace, Brigid.

You will be missed dearly my friend. It will not be the same without you here, my friends and I will miss your smiling face and fun loving personality at the Legion. Losing a friend is never easy but the marks you left behind have made this world a better place! Thank YOU, for being so good to my friends and I! Sending prayers for peace and comfort to you and yours, it is not a farewell but a "Till we meet again!"
