I just wanted to add .. when I first meet Bridget we we're in grade school, my family at that time was renting a house from RP. One day I remember RP had stopped by with Bridget.. when I first saw her she was so beautiful and I wanted to be her.. :) I remember she had on a sundress that made her look so Angelic !! I have never forgotten that day !! She continued to be Angelic!!
