In the 1970s, my wife and I vacationed at Freeport in the Bahamas every year. Quite often we would run into the Bridges. Mrs. Bridge was very friendly and several times entered into lengthy conversations with my wife.During one such meeting, Lloyd was not certain if he should accept a certain engagement. She emphatically said to him that he should take it, and he did. She talked about her two boys who were relatively young at that time and that she was having more trouble with one than the other, I don't reemember which one. I believe that they also had a daughter, because I saw her in the casino with her dad. Dorothy seemed like a very nice lady, who engaged unknown strangers such as ourselves in lengthy conversations. I believe that they stayed at the Xanadu. It was a nice memory for us, and yes Lloyd went into the ocean in his scuba gear.

May the God of comfort and tender mercies continue to comfort you and your family.

Know that very shortly death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things will have passed away.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

My condolences go out to the Bridges family, especially Jeff and Beau. Dorothy was a wonderful and great matriarch of the family. I believe she stood behind her husband Lloyd (RIP Lloyd) and both boys in whatever direction they decided to go in with their careers.

God Bless you all!

Sending God’s blessings to the Bridges family with a poem. I wrote this when my Mom died.

Life is a journey. When we begin this journey, we know ultimately, there will be an end. In some way there is, but more important is what happened along the way that makes us who we are. Our lives are the threads of connected experiences encountered during this personal journey. The building materials are our parents who make us, then its family, surroundings, people, events and experiences. We never really know how these building materials shape our lives, thoughts and feelings until we lose one of the pieces that helped connect the threads of our journey. It’s then that we feel an end and that part of us is gone because they are gone. But it is the complete opposite. All of you are here and better because of your Mom. She is a special part in the thread that made you who you are. What we gain from others throughout our lives never ends but gets brighter within us because of them and life continues. And when we go away, the light gets brighter in others, and life goes on and on. Maybe that’s what we call a soul.

Celebrate her life and the fact that you were fortunate to have her in it as she was to have you in hers. Your Mom is in our prayers.

My deepest condolences to the whole Bridges Family for your great loss.

It is evident that Dot was a remarkable wife and mother, to have raised a fine hard working family.
She vauled the precious gift of life by the way she lived hers. May those happy memories sustain the family and bring some comfort. Although life will never be the same without her.
Wise King Solomon once said that there is "a time to weep". But he also said that there needs to be "a time to heal."--Ecclesiastes 3:3,4
For those she left behind coping without her will be hard. Nevertheless, those who live on still have much to contribute to others.--Ecclesiastes 11:7,8

For Dorothy...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

The beautiful Matriarch of a wonderful family whom I have had the privilege to know for almost my entire life. "Dottie" was the warmest and most gracious host and friend. All one has to do is know the whole family to understand how beautiful Dorothy Bridges was...

I met my favorite actor, Lloyd Bridges when I was 18 he was doing Joe Forrester. He welcomed me and allowed me to visit the set as often as I wanted to. I thank Mr. Bridges for his kindness to a young fan. He even remembered a letter I wrote to him.
I met Mrs. Bridges at a wrap party for Joe Forrester. She was as sweet as can be. My heart goes out to Beau, Jeff and Lucinda. Thank you for sharing your father with someone who grew up adoring him. Your mother once wrote to me and had the kindest words. They will both be missed.

Dear Lucinda, Jeff and Beau,
A few years ago, I stumbled upon your mother's book. I loved the poetry, and her recollections of her rich life. But one thing has really stuck with me. The fact that she and your Dad stayed together through thick and thin. I think of them as we go through our own slogs, and often I tell friends about her and Bud. Her wisdom about relationships was priceless and inspiring. We all have these relationships, we have to do something with them. She and Bud certainly made the most of theirs, and shared the blessings with all.
April 27, 2009
to those of you who wrote in this guest book, i want to thank you for your loving thoughts,...taking the time to send them in this new 'cyber space'.
i was looking up something about my mother's poetry book, and came upon this. i read every one. it seems to be an especially difficult passage right now for me,...is it really more than 2 months since she passed? and yet it feels oddly timeless. this grieving is a wordless experience. reading the sentiments of others that have felt this, has been heart warming and picked up my spirit. also hearing from friends i remember so well from my youth, and those from bear valley ,...where i just went back over easter taking my 18 and 19 yr old snowboarding at mom and dad's old home there invited by the generous new owner.
we had an amazing time! and what memories.

yes, we have been truly blessed with a mother (and father) our best friends. the few that knew her (them) and wrote here in this guestbook, experienced her (their) generous heart got a dose of that love. she sits with me now, ... i know it, i feel it. (yes, and dad too of course!)
infused with their gifts, i send off my own 3 boys/men into this world, and know that family and Home is the answer to spreading worldly peace. like loving soldiers they go out and march to that lullabye..."to soar and to dive in the cold black sea, winged and strong as you're meant to be,...and i will teach you to fly,...tho' i know someday you will fly away, i will teach you to fly."
sung to us as children, and then us to ours, and now ours to theirs,..and us to mom and dad when they became weak.
and so the grand cycle continues as we hold our parents (our teachers) and let them go with love.
thank you, both friends, and 'friendly strangers',...for this unforeseen and helpful moment of connecting with you.

-from the heart,...lucinda(cindy)bridges

Dear Beau, Jeff, Cindy,
Your parents were my cousins best friends. Now they are in Heaven entirely reunited together again in friendship with cousins Betty and Granny ! They always reminded me The Richardos too! Cousin Andi is there too to bring them all smiles !
I will always remember the day your dad saved my life at The beachhouse. I was only four years old! Years later, while visiting at Bomber Mallers' home , your dad and I talked about my newest adventure which was scuba diving! When I told him that I just made a 50 foot dive, he confessed that he never dove below 20-30 feet.
Your mom had great wit and humor about her. She was absolutely a second mom to cousin Andi and Terri! I appreciated all of the times she spent including me at some family gatherings too!
My mom and dad Warren and Anne Ackerman who are still alive enjoyed the four of them very much. I still have a picture of all them square dancing in The 1950's! What a hoot to see our families all dressed up in western clothes!
Our families are now the legacy of these fine people. They broke the mold after each one of them.
Wishing all of you comfort and peace in your time of loss and celebration of the life of your mom, Dorothy! I hope that she will meet up with Matty Stepanek and write beautiful poetry together!
Love, Laurie and Carly Ackerman, Richard Ackerman, Barbara Fond Ackerman,Warren and Anne Ackerman

To Beau & Jeff Bridges and their family. Please accept my sympathy on the passing of your Mother. Your Mom and Dad were down to earth, responsible people, who raised two great sons, and showed the world that what a great and loving family you all are.
When a butterfly lightly touches you, it will be your Mom telling you she is fine and with Dad.
What lovely memories you will have.

Sincerely

To Cindy, Marcel and the Bridges' Family. We were so lucky to have been friends of the family when our boys (Khoury and Marcel) were in school together in Malibu. We still talk about the birthday parties at the beach house, Oliver, and going trick-or-treating on Halloween. What great fun we all had. Thank you, Cindy and Marcel, for sharing your family with all of us. We will miss Lloyd and Dottie B, but they are together forever.

Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

How lucky to have a mother so well loved by everyone who knew her! Her reward was having such nice boys, now grown men. As a mom to a son, I can't explain how much it means to a mother's heart. It is priceless! Take comfort in knowing you brought her so much joy. She is inspiring to other moms like me. Celebrate her life!
March 01, 2009
May GOD'S love comfort you in your sorrow. Know your Mother is with your Dad in a safe and beautiful place. My tears flowed as my parents have passed away and I can feel your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

My Deepest Sympathy to the Bridges Family,

I’m a baby boomer born in 1950 and among the TV shows I grew up with ‘Mike Nelson’ and ‘Sea Hunt’ was a big part of my childhood. My friends and I would mimic the television heroes we watched and so admired. Mike Nelson, Mr. Lloyd Bridges was truly one of my childhood heroes. He portrayed on TV in front of myself and all baby boomers that good, fair and honest were what good ‘Americans’ were made of. Bad was simply that, bad.

As I reflect on times gone by, the good old days as described by some, I come to realize that the human values Lloyd Bridges portrayed and broadcast in every episode of ‘Sea Hunt’ were the very fabric of what holds our ‘Country’ together. Sadly I feel that the fabric is coming undone and I can’t help but feel that its because as a society we have lost sight of those values. Sadly there are no more ‘Mike Nelsons’ to remind us of who we are and how we should behave in the face of wrong and unfair.

Behind every married man is strong and supportive wife, Dorothy Bridges was that and more. I know now that I owe her for the opportunity I had to view ‘Sea Hunt’, if not for her support of Lloyd I and the entire baby boomer generation would not have never seen ‘Sea Hunt’. So everything Lloyd Bridges was to me as ‘Mike Nelson’ was because of the support he had from his wife Dorothy. She made it possible for Lloyd to portray Mike.

I’m very comforted by the revelation that Dorothy wrote a ‘Valentines Poem’ each and every Valentines to Lloyd. That tells me that my ‘Hero’ and his ‘Wife’ were so very very happy together and so much in love. It is so fitting that a hero such as Lloyd and his extra ordinary spouse Dorothy had such love and affection for each other. They were truly super spouses to each other, warm and wonderful human beings that deserved to live side by side.

Again, my deepest sympathy to the Bridges Family. You were blessed by very very special parents.

Greg Paxton.
Baby Boomer, Sea Hunt fan.

"At a time liket this there is a sorrow for which no heart could ever be prepared" Please know that my thoughts are with all of you, Beau, Jeff and CIndy... You all have the support and caring of so many for Dorothy was an exceptional women. You are close in thought and I wish you all comfort and peace. Jodi Serling
March 01, 2009
My thoughts are with you all: Beau, Jeff, and Cynthia. Your parents were very important to my mom - you were the connections to her family. I hope all is well with your families; it has been a very long time since we visited as a family. We are now all located in Idaho with us living about an hour from Sun Valley on a hay and cow ranch.
Take joy and good thoughts from such a loving and close family when you remember your parents. From 2nd Cousin
March 01, 2009
Losing a parent is so painful. Be blessed for everything she was and remember she is always with you. God Bless.
March 01, 2009
Your family is what love is made from. No scandals, nor headline news. Just pure love and that is what it is all about. I thank you for your unabashed love that you gave to your children and in turn they are giving us truth and grace on the screen. I want to be the kind of wife, mother, grandmother that you have shown to your family so that my legacy will live on. God Bless.

I met Dorothy and Lloyd in 1978 when i was nursing in California. I met them thru Kris Murphy (Simpson). I was at their place numerous times, the first time being Christmas eve, when i was alone in Westwood. They opened their home and their hearts to me, a stranger and I will forever be thankful for their kindness.

Jeff & Beau, I'd like to express my deepest sympathy for the passing of your beloved Mom. She truly was a wonderful woman and loved her family dearly. I know your Dad welcomed her to heaven with open arms where she'll remain for eternity. I feel your pain because I lost my Dear Mom on Nov. 19, 2006 & my loving Brother on Feb. 2, 2004 and I still grieve today, but I will always remember the good times we all shared. I was a fan of your Dad, we all watched Sea Hunt and other movies he was in. Jeff & Beau, I am also a big fan of yours too. What a legacy your family is to the world. Your in my thoughts & prayers at this tragic time.....Shelley Owens

Upon reading of Dorothy Bridges' death I immediately ordered, from HalfPriced Books, her poems that she wrote to Lloyd each Valentines Day. It arrived today and I look forward to enjoying a warm fire in the fireplace and reading her poetry.

I wish to express my heartfelt sympathy in your time of great sorrow. Only those who have lost a loved one can know the depth of your feelings. I have experienced the death of my parents, a child and my grandparents. I know how difficult these times can be for those left behind.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you. God bless you and your family during this difficult time and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
February 26, 2009
Sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She is in the arms of the Lord and of course, she is standing side by side with your Dad. God Bless both Beau and Jeff, too. I seem to remember that my Uncle Joe Talamo lived across the street from the Bridges in Encino in the late 50's. On occasion, I would visit and have the opportunity to hang out with Beau and Jeff. Susan Talamo was my cousin who introduced us. Take care
February 26, 2009

Wow-she sounds like she was a wonderful loving woman. I pray she is with her "BUD" now, writing more poems and starting up yet another 60 plus eternal years with him. May the Lord help those left behind with their loss, and know she is in a far better place now. My family truly loved Sea Hunt and hope these special words help you at this time of sorrow.

My condolences to the Bridges family,

I know I am just a small voice in a small town, but I wanted to take time to let you all know you are thought about at this time. The Bridges have always been in my family, ever since "SEAHUNT".
We never missed an episode. I wish you all the best and know how hard it is to handle grief and sorrow. It has been 14 years since my mother passed away and I am still not over it yet. Tomorrow, Feb 27th, would have been her birthday. My daughter and I still go out and celebrate her birthday with cake and ice cream, because that is what she would have wanted. Please know that people do care, even though I have never met you, I do know how it is to lose a loved one. May God bless and keep and comfort you at this time.
February 26, 2009

February 25, 2009
Jeff and Beau,
The Holy Scriptures tell us that those that pass away are really "sleeping". (See Revelation--the Bible). May God be near you in your hour of sorrow. Search the Scriptures to find the hope that you need at this time. I'd love to share this hope if you care to contact.

Nature

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

May God give you all the comfort and strenght to go from each day to the next, in this most difficult time.

February 25, 2009
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Beau, Jeff & the entire Bridges family,

From the light in her eyes in the photo it's clear that Dorothy instilled a tremendous amount of confidence, love and sensibility in all of you to an extent that is most rare. I will use my abiding faith in her great spirit to spread more of the same happiness, love and wisdom as she did in this life. You have my deepest sympathy and sincere thanks for sharing her image and memory today. Best regards ~ Jeff

Mrs Bridges and her family are in my thoughts. I have many happy childhood memories of Mr and Mrs Bridges in Bear Valley and especially one summer when I was 16 and they invited my sister and I to spend a week with them in LA. That was so special. Mrs Bridges was such a kind, lovely lady and will be missed by many. Sincerely, Marianne Pecchenino (formerly Parelius)
February 24, 2009
Mrs. Bridges and her family will be in my prayers. Her appearance on the Bonnie Hunt show when Beau was a guest gave the world a delightful glimpse of the wonderful woman she was - so very proud of her children and grandchildren. May she rest in peace.

Now both of you sons will be able to walk balanced because your Dad's Angel is on your right shoulder and your Mom's Angel is on the left. This balance is what makes memories happen. God Bless You and your families.

Don't greive for me ,for now I am free
I'm following the path God laid for me.

I turned my back and left it all
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now, he set me free

Dear Bridges family,

I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was an exceptionally special person and one I will always remember. I will never forget the experience my sister Marianne and I had with both your parents when they invited us down to stay with them in Malibu. Your mother was as sweet as she could be and we had the BEST time. She will always hold a special place in my heart. May God give you peace during this difficult time and may the memories of her make each passing day without her a little easier.

Fondly, Christine Parelius Testa (Bear Valley)

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
February 24, 2009
Father we entrust our sister Dorothy to your mercy. You loved her greatly in this life: now that she is freed from all its cares, give her happiness and peace forever. Welcome her now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
May God hold Dorothy in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathies.
February 24, 2009
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. She sounds like a wonderful woman. As a child I loved to watch Lloyd is "Sea Hunt" and I am sure that your mother was a great support to your father. May you find comfort in His word and embrace the thought that they are in Heaven together.
February 24, 2009
Many years ago, I was so tenderly touched when I heard your mom talk about the journal she had kept for more than fifty years. Also, how special that your dad sang that beautiful lullaby to his children which they then sang to their's. God bless.
February 24, 2009

In Memory of Mrs. Lloyd Bridges:
Behind every good man, is also a good woman. I am so sorry for your loss. I am a mother and I know from personal experience how hard it is on a family when the mother goes home to be with the Lord. Your dear husband was one of my father's favorite actors when I was a child. My siblings and I always watched "Sea Hunt" and admired Mr. Bridges thru all his many movies and also a television series called "The Loner". I thought the horse he rode was so pretty and the series had beautiful music. We have also come to embrace your dear sons, Beau & Jeff. They are both very fine actors, carrying on the legacy that dear Mr. Lloyd left behind. May your soul rise on it to Heaven before the devil knows you have left us.
February 24, 2009
Sorry to read of your great loss. Your mother sounds like a wonderful mother as well as wife to your dad who was wonderful too. You sons have a good heritage and it is no wonder that you both are great actors and men. Jenny
February 24, 2009
Dear Brothers Bridges,

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. I am glad for you that you had her for so many years. I want you to know that "Sea Hunt" was one of my favorite shows when I was growing up. I am glad to see your mother's picture and I can now picture them back together again. Thank you for sharing her obituary with the world; she seems like such a wonderful, loving person. I will look for her book of poetry book; I love a good love story. It will be nice to see the love she felt for your father. God bless you and your family in your time of sorrow. I hope you feel His comfort and peace that only He can give.

Sincerely,

Deborah Hecht

Dear Bridges family,
My mother passed at the age of 51 from breast cancer. No matter the age, she has still been your mother ALL of your life. Writing Valentine's Day poems to your father every year, even after he passed, is the most romantic thing I think I've ever heard. Truly she must have been a lovely lady. May our Father in Heaven sustain you during this time of loss.
February 24, 2009
I lost my Mom on October 12, 2008. She was 72. I know how you feel. My sympathies to your entire family. Losing a parent is one of the greatest challenges we face in life. Your parents sounded like wonderful people. God Bless your family.
February 24, 2009
I lost my own dear Mother not too long ago.
You are in my heart and my prayers.
May God give you His peace at this time.

You never really hear much about the moms/wives behind the talent in Hollywood- but, I imagine they are like moms everywhere. Holding it altogether, supporting, and just being the "backbone" in the family. I did not know Mrs. Bridges- but I do know that she raised two fine sons and was a good wife. I send my condolences to her family and friends. They were blessed to have such a woman in their lives.
February 24, 2009
Beau and Jeff ,
So sorry to hear of the loss of your loving mother , I lost my mother in 1999 and my father in 2001 but with the grace and love of God your pain of loss will be healed .

lovely book of poetry a few
weeks ago while on a short trip

was...

notice about her completely by accident
and immediately recognized her
from her photo..
I know that
she will be greatly missed by
her family....

When I am dead, my dearest

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

By Christina Rossetti

Nature

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Matriarch, that describes my mother also. The world needs more women like this. God bless Mrs Bridges and family.

I wish to express my deepest condolences on your recent loss of your dear mother, I know the pain you must be feeling as I too lost a loved one of 50 years. The only thing that helps ease the pain is knowing that she is no longer in any pain an with Our Lord and Maker, as I'm sure your mother is also. Also knowing that she is now with your father must have a very warm and enduring feeling.
May God Bless you and your families.

To Beau and Jeff,
I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your mother.I too lost my dad in 1998 and my mother in 2005. They were also from MA. I remember Sea Hunt with fond memories and some of the movies that Beau(and Jeff) did. May you have comfort in the memories of your mother who lived mostly behind the scenes but was obviously a strong influence in all your lives.
February 22, 2009
February 22, 2009
To the Bridges*
Iwill say a prayer and Light some candles , etc. Growing up and watching Sea Hunt was one of my favorite shows. At the end of the Show I was glued to the screen watching Mike Nelson sail away untill the program went to black. I to will shead some tears as well.
February 22, 2009
What a wonderful life. Congratulations Dorothy and the whole Bridges family. I was a fan of Sea Hunt and have enjoyed the movies of Beau and Jeff and I still think Jeff was the best president ever to appear in a movie. Professionally, the Bridges were tops, and even more successful in life as Dorothy steered the ship. God bless.
February 22, 2009
Mrs. Bridges lived a full and satisfying life. I really have enjoyed the work of her family over the years. May memories of the good times help you to cope during these difficult days. Our Heavenly Father knows that hearts are sad when we lose a loved one to the "last enemy death" and so He gives these words of promise. John 5:28, 29 states "Do not marvel at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out...May you find great comfort in this promise.
February 22, 2009
gone to be with her wonderful husband bud
February 22, 2009
I wish to tell the Bridges family whom I loved to watch the past 50 years how truly saddened I am for them. I am suffering a bad spine injury and lost my career in everything so I took up acting and writing screen plays I like this family so much I wrote in a part about Lloyd Bridges in Sea Hunt in my script. Thunder Mike an drumble Rob. God Bless you Beau and Jeff and may God be craddling your mother in his arms this very minute. One thing for sure This loving couple are back together again. 60 years of marriage, how truly inspirational
February 22, 2009
Condolences to the family. I used to watch SEA HUNT with my dad & really enjoyed it. My dad told me he MET Lloyd Bridges while fishing around the Eureka, CA. area in the early 1960's! What a wonderful treat! I enjoy the movies and shows a lot.
February 22, 2009
as a kid loved sea hunt and god bless you.
February 22, 2009
I would like to add my condolances to the entire Bridges family on the loss of your mother &grandmother.
I would also say "smile knowing she is with your dad again" I am sure he was there to greet her! I feel like I knew your dad as I live near Silver Springs Fl. where your dad filmed many of his shows in our beautiful waters! As a long time resident I a others were proud to knowthat he was 'sort of' a local because they still mention his name on the tours of the 'Springs!!

Although we expect that our parents will enter The Great Mystery before us, we can never realize, until it happens, the great void that a Mother's passing leaves. Know that a Mother's love is forever, and above all else, that very love is the one true thing that will keep your spirits connected thru infinity. Many hearts are with the Bridges family at this sad time. Blessed Be.

February 21, 2009
To the Bridges Family:

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the death of your mother. At a time when marriage scandels are more prevalent than we would like, your parents' story is one to be emulated by all. Your mom was a beautiful woman who touched the lives of many in a positive way and will be missed by all.

She is now in God's memory with the hopes of being among the many who are called from the memorial tombs to life on a righteous, peaceful earth. May you draw comfort and strength from this and all the bible-based promised that will be realized under God's Kingdom arrangement.
February 21, 2009

February 21, 2009
To the Bridges Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. From all the stories I read about her she came across as being a kind, sensitive, loving and devoted wife, mother and friend. Only two weeks ago I picked up her book "You Caught Me Kissing" while on vacation. What a beautiful book to celebrate her relationship with your father! My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time.
