My sympathies to Shirley and all members of the Bridgeman family. No matter how well you think you are prepared for the loss , you never are and in these surreal times everything is magnified because all those hugs you would get are being put on hold - but only for a while💘Diane Jones

In my special memories I treasure the Happy times that I spent with your Mum when I designed and made her clothes for the times that she followed the horses that your Dad raced.
