To the readers of My Big Girl Pants:
April 4th marks three years since Bridget passed away, and losing her is still hard to comprehend. Our hearts ache from missing her; her beautiful smile, her sharp wit and her engaging personality. It is impossible to capture everything she was in mere words. As our lives go on, we mourn the fact that she is missing those milestones all of us enjoy: weddings, babies, family trips, birthdays and simple joy. We know for certain, however, that she is with us at every turn, as, in Bridget fashion, she sends remarkable signs. We are reminded often that her spirit lives among us as we share memories of her and laugh the way she would have wanted. Bridget was truly unforgettable.
Her legacy lives on at Dana Farber also, as the Pink Angels near their goal. The Bridget Spence Fund goes directly to breast cancer research, to spare other young women impacted by this disease...certainly Bridget's greatest wish.
On this April 4th, please keep your fondest memories of Bridget alive.
