Comments: Well this the first time I've been able to come here. It's still very upsetting when I think of all the things that should have been, but were cut short by someone so un-caring. I think about you everyday and see the pain that your sissy tries to deal with, but is really just under the skin. She can finally talk about you, which is a good thing, and we are able now to talk about the good memories that we share. I thank all those that have come here, and keep the memory of Jim alive.

Comments: I look at your picture everyday and tell you how much I love and miss you. I will do that every day for the rest of my life. I just wish I could bring you back to us.
JT (your little buddy) is getting so big... He's just about to finish his kindergarten year. He's all you babe. He is smart like you, looks just like you, acts just like you, and he even tells the stories like you. Ya know he swam with the dolphins... HA HA HA. Kinda like you and how you use to play a doctor on tv or "back in Nam". He still looks for you in the stars and says he loves and misses you all the time. He'll always be "Dadders boy".
I can't believe that it has been 3 years since you were tragicly taken away from us. It seems like just yesterday that you were here with us. My heart still hurts just as much today as 3 years ago. I don't believe that the hurt will ever go away. Everyone has always said " it will get easier " But it really hasn't got easier. I've just found other ways to hide it.

Comments: Well, I tried to not think about it. I really did. It didn't work. I managed to look at the time the moment of the crash and when I got the call. 3 years to the day of that drunk woman hitting you and I can't forget. I am still waiting for the time heals all wounds and all those misconceptions to kick in. It hasn't. I also to this day do not feel one ounce of pain or compassion towards Tanzania Jackson for what she did to you by killing you, our lives, and our families lives. I know it's against all common faith practices to not forgive. However, I will never forgive her and never wish her a single day of happiness in her life. I am thankful she never killed that first guy she decided to rob and beat (check public records for that conviction, sac county, california) but she never learned a thing from her past and I don't expect killing my baby brother will change her ways either. I watch the news for Ms. Jackson and her next victim, be it robbery/beating or DUI killing. I truly wish it was her own life that was taken that night for her actions.

Comments: Well, this is your birthday "MONTH". I just knew when I woke up monday morning, on your birthday, that it would be a very sad day for us all. We would give everything to be able to celebrate with you here with us. It still was a sad day for us, but with a bit of a twist added. Kind of wierd that on your birthday, your son, Cory,and his friend helped stop a drunk driver that was fleeing from the scene of a crash. It ended up all over the media. Knowing you and how you always made your birthday a big deal, it kind of makes me say "hummmm imagine that". We smiled all day. We know you are still with us, watching over us! I am very proud of Cory and His friend, John, and I know you are also. We love you, and miss you more and more each day!

You are a wonderful sister to make this website dedicated to your brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I am missing my one and only brother too. He was killed on the 3rd of November 2002. Still waiting on the trial. Life will never be the same and we must hold on to the wonderful memories.

Comments: Well, Broby such is the joke of the legal system. Your killer is free now. 1 year 2 weeks is apparently all they needed to infringe upon her life with. And to think we thought the 2 year sentence was a slap. Guess that you are dead and we are all trying to make sense of a huge loss is rather trivial. I will edit out what I would like to say next as I couldn't get that lucky to have it happen.

I found out this week she's to be out of prison next month and it rips my heart out. I am thinking of you today as I am sure most everyone is. I love you and miss you Broby.

Comments: Jim was a big part of my Senior year of high school at Mesa Verde. He and my husband were roommates for awhile and we all worked together for about 2 years. He was there when our first daughter was born and again when the second one came along a year and a half later. We lost touch with Jim a few years ago, but we never forgot about him. He was always a joker! We loved to have him around for that very reason. I am very saddened by the news of his death and am sorry to say that I am just hearing about it a year and a half after the accident. Stephanie, I am so sorry that you lost your wonderful husband. And, to his boys, I am sorry you lost your wonderful daddy. You are all in my thoughts and my prayers.

We celebrated your birthday at the cemetary. Butters sang happy birthday to you and blew out the candle. He just told me today how much he misses his daddy. I still don't want to believe that we will never see you again. I love you so much babe. Love me, your wife always and forever.

Comments: Dear Donna & Family, I am so pleased to have met you today! What a brave soul you are! It was meant for me to see that article in the POST. Then to meet with you. I am sorry that it is by lives so marked by tradgedy that we meet.I am spurred to try to fight more & harder for more stringent laws.It was 30 years ago this past May that Paul Douglas Coedy was taken from our lives by a Drunk Driver. Paul was my best friend's husband. They had only been married 6 months to the day, that he died.Paul was also a funny man. He brought much laughter & joking to our lives. My son is named after Paul & now strangely works for Cal-Trans.I pray for my son & his crew daily. Now I know that there is so much more I can, should, & must do!!!! I pray for strength for you Donna in your quest for better & stronger definition in the laws. I will be of what help I can. God Bless you & your family. We will be in touch again soon I am sure! - Laura

Comments: To all of Jim's family and friends...I wanted to extend my heartfelt sorrow for your loss. I remember Jim from Mesa...I saw the message on Classmates and decided that though I am not sure what to say I knew I had to say something. We graduated the same year... we had the same mutual friends... and I vaguely remember being his aquaintance...mostly I do remember him always clowning and joking. I just thought you would like to know that he was difinitly a presence to even those of us who did not know him well.

To Stephanie...I can not imagine your grief...I cried as you described your love for Jim...I am lucky enough to know that love with my own husband and now after visiting Jim's site and hearing all the love, I will never take for granted the time I have with my Husband or any member of my family. Jim...did not dye in vain...know this is true...his death has already brought about a domino of changes...and will continue to do so. There is no doubt that you and Jim's family will see someday that the sacrifice...though hard to bare and unfair...will in the end be for a greater good...it will save lives and awaken a justice system that is in desparate need of change with the drunk driving laws. I am also a victim of this horriable action. My father was killed by a drunk driver when I was only 18mos old...to young to remember but felt the void my whole life...but I am sure the driver of the car is still living a full life, I can only hope he has repented for his actions...but they usually seem to blame the world for there problems...

Anyway, I apprectiate you all sharing Jim's story...it was nice to see how he turned into such a great person...I will pray and help anyway I can to see that laws change and wish for your family...Fortunetly for all of you...it sounds like you have a perfectly wonderful angel in heaven who I am confident from what I have read will never be to far away...in fact God probably just needed him up there to get the party started with a few laughs.

I know JIm's sister said she lost faith in God...But he has not lost faith in you...that is why you are able to take on this crusade and you will do great things and change laws and lives. I do not know why but I woke up sick this morning and then went right to classmates and then to this site...it is as if someone guided me to tell you that God is with you and to please know that your brother's death is only the fault of the driver...who made the choice not to listen to a God who more then likely gave her sign after sign... to not drive that night.Ms. Jackson is the only one to blame. Unfortunetly, God cannot stop people from making bad choices...I just needed to share that. It was completley unintended to preach...

To conclude...live life fully and with great conviction...and I am sending and internet hug to all of you and the children. You all have done a wonderful job with this site and god bless you for sharing.I will continue to check the site and honor Jim's life.

Comments: I was shocked when I heard the news last year. The name sounded familiar, and when I saw the picture, I knew it was Jim Bridges from Mesa Verde's Class of 88. I remember Jim as being the FUNNIEST guy in school, and somehow we always ended up in the same intersession (make-up!) classes. A few familiar names in this dreambook will remember those good times also!
Even though I hadn't seen Jim since high school, I certainly never forgot him, and my heart goes out to his wife, children & whole family. This site is a great tribute, especially the pictures. What a neat idea. Thanks for sharing all those great memories.

I can still remember our last conversation, every word. I can still here the sound of your voice telling me you love me that last time.I can still here your voice telling your boy "I'll be home in the morning to lie down with you, Good night, I love you Buddy", And I can still see that smile with your eyebrows lifted saying "HI BUDDY" like you did every day when you got home from work. There's so much more memories and I miss them all. I always will. I LOVE YOU......... Your wife always.....STEPH...

Her Jester is gone
In the trees by the river
She hears laughter and song
In her hands fall tears of resin
For in her heart his smile is strong
All she can do is fight for eyes
As the world bustles on with life
The thrown is crumbling
But know one is knows because she smiles a lie.

Comments: What a beautiful monument to someone who was obviously loved, and what powerful testimony to the dangers of driving while drunk. You have done a wonderful job with this site, Donna, and I applaud and support your attempts to get tougher laws in place so that people would think twice about drinking and driving.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, and for keeping us updated on what's happening with the trial. Your site makes your brother become much more than just another statistic, and it draws us in and makes us realise that these are real people being killed out there.

Thank you for your courage in sharing that. Thank you for the pictures. The more real the people behind the news are, the less likely things like your brother's tragic death would happen.

At least, I hope that is the case.

I nearly met that same fait a few years back, and until then I thought "Survivors guilt," was a bunch of bull. I don't like to dwell on it, but of course my mom does. That makes me feel good though, just like this page will help your brother more than you think. We all just want to be remembered right?

Comments: Dear Donna,

My only sibling was also killed by an "alleged" drunk driver, on 14 June 1997. The incident killed three... my sister, her dear husband and the other driver. It was a case of true horror for our already-widowed mother!

So,you know that I completely understand the pain your family is facing.

My husband and I simply do not drink. This totally takes away the possibility of our driving while intoxicated. I do wish others would follow this lead by just relaxing and getting "high" on life!

Hang in there.

I miss you so much each and every day. I try to do other stuff to keep myself from dwelling on every thing, but I can't! I love you too much. You are in every thought I have every day.
Butters is in school now. Just three days a week but He really likes it. He misses you so much. He cries"I want my daddy". Donna's right, He and Bird play great together now. You would be so proud. I will help Donna with making their relationship as great as Donna's, Lolo's, and Yours. He looks just like you too. Very good looking. BUT, your still jealous because I have cute feet. HA HA HA.
Love your wife......

Never a minute goes by that I don't miss you, think of you, and want you back. To think you were taken from us is just something I can't get over. You were my only sibling and my friend. I love you and we miss you so much. I am watching your son grow so much and if you could see Bird now play with him you would remember the cousins. I will make sure they have not only what we shared as close siblings but what we had with Lolo as well. I love you.

Although I have never met you, I felt like I had after visiting your site. My Husband of 25 years was killed by a drunk driver 6 years ago while he was on his way to work.
The drunk was only 17 and he got away with murder. He got a $65.00 fine and 120 hours of community service. I wish you and your family the best of luck in your quest to change the drunk driving laws. My prayers are with you.

Comments: I have lived in Carmichael myself for over 30 years. In that time, things have really changed. I am really heart-broken that some one with so much promise was taken from here. There are so many selfish people out there, who just don't care. It is my hope that something will come along that will stop people from driving drunk and ruining lives. Punishment after the fact seems to have no effect on decisions to drive drunk. And I have heard of many who lost their licenses and continue to drive without them. It took many years to get my mother to stop driving while drinking. She always thought she could "handle it". After many local stories about the toll drinking has taken on innocent peoples lives, we finally got her to "take a cab", although we never really stopped her drinking. Maybe we could get some cab companies to volunteer to drive drunks home. I know bartenders are supposed to take the keys, but some just don't want to leave people "on foot". A lot of people "run tabs" at bars and don't have the money to get home in a cab....

My deepest regrets to you and your family!you are in my prayers!

Comments: What happened to Jim was absolutley WRONG! Who would ever think that a job, working hard to help care for your family, would possibly take your life from underneath you. The night I heard what happened to Jim, I got on my knees in my backyard, staired into the starey sky, and prayed. Even though I wasn't a close friend, it still hurt to hear someone was possibly slipping through life. I asked God, if he was going to take him, please be there for his family. To help them understand, but most of all, to visit them in their dreams. He had no idea what was going on, but I'm sure he was above everyone in the room, seeing and feeling the love he was receiving. Jim, what you left behind, was people who knew as someone full of love, humor, and happiness.

BassMaster, you didn't know this, but I had a candle lit for you that night. I may not show compassion on the cb, but I had compassion for you that night. I'm sorry your life ended so young. It was so awkward, just seeing you make fun of yourself (outside at the cb break ), after having that surgery of yours, poking fun at yourself. That was too funny!! Losing my stepmom a few years ago was hard on me, waiting for her to come walking down the hall at my dad's, I broke into tears. My condolences to your wife and children. Memories last forever, but in this world, the physical loss is tremendous.

When I was younger, I spent my weekends driving teenagers under the influence to and from houses, parties or wherever needed. It was funded by the Boy Scouts of America. This was free and totally confidential. It was a program to keep teens from driving drunk. I think this program needs to be spread to ADULTS also. Not to justify drinking in public places, but to be there for them. This person should have never been drinking while driving or Jim would of still been here.

May you fish eternally with your golden fishing rod in heaven.

An acquaintance on the cb.

Maybe sometime you can let me know how to view the other pictures in the photo album, I could only see the one photo. But I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact I'm an internet idiot. Anyway I like the site, it serves as a nice reminder in the cyberspace world of a great friend,who'll NEVER be fogotten by anyone Jim touched. My heart and thoughts go out to you the family. Take care, Buenos Dias.-----Terry

Comments: Donna,
My heart goes out to you at the loss of your beloved brother Jim. I am the sister, niece, and grand daughter of men named Jim Bridges and I have a sister named Donna Bridges. I also live in Paradise, CA and became aware of your brother's tragic death when I read about it in the Bridges list through ROOTSWEB. My prayers are with you as you face this terrible loss. I do not know if we are related directly, but my heart goes out to you, and I admire your love and dedication to your brother and support you efforts to inform others of how to spare other families the loss you have suffered. As I read about your brother's life, I am proud to share a name with a family of the caliber I see in yours. Sincerely, Lorna Bridges

Comments: A very well constructed page and may God bless you. I just buried my 37 year old daughter last week. Busted blood vein in her head, and after surgery she went into a coma. I kept her on life support until God give me a sign to let her go.

request she had made. A lady in New Jersery has been given a new heart and is doing great. God Bless us all !

Comments: Donna,
The work you have put into this Dreambook is marvelous and if Jim were here he would tell you how proud he is of you and how much he loves his sister for doing this for him. Just remember, he watches over you and knows the efforts you are going through. Bless you and you are in m prayers not just today but always.

A friend
