Father Coleridge and family, my heart feels the pain of your loss. Mrs. Coleridge was a beautiful person and will be greatly missed by all who loved her and those who had the pleasure of meeting her and/or being around her. I'm sure many of her students at Bridgeport Central High School will remember her, as will I from my days/Sundays at St. Mark's in Bridgeport.
From my myself and surviving members of the Hines Family of Bridgeport (Sandy, Michael, Susie, Marsha, Mark, and Bruce), our condolences....may she rest in paradise.
