  1. I have many fond memories while growing up with the Bridges kids of Virginia and how she was always so kind and gracious. She was loving and thoughtful to everyone who crossed her path. One memory I have is going to the Bridges’ storm shelter whenever a tornado came. The parents were anxious but I thought it was fun hanging out with the Bridges kids in the storm shelter. I also remember family float trips on the Illinois River. Being on the water in a canoe was not Jim and Virginia’s favorite thing to do, but I respected their commitment to family fun. My prayers go out to the Bridges family. Virginia will be greatly missed.

  2. Virginia was my mother in law’s best friend. I have heard many stories over the years about the Kennedys and Bridges. There was a special bond there and I always admired Etta Marie and Virginia’s friendship. I think they talked on the phone every day. Virginia welcomed me from the beginning and she was always so nice to me. I know she will be missed by many. I’m grateful I knew her.
