My name is Patrick Rhodes, and I was trying to find a man by the name of Ed Bridges in Moab. Well, I found him through your paper online, and sadly, he’s passed on.
Ed Bridges saved my life five years ago. I was hiking across the country and got really down on myself. I was ready to kill myself one foggy morning in Washington. I was standing on a cliff side, and then he pulled up in his truck and talked me off the ledge. He not only did that, but we went to breakfast and he encouraged me to do something with my life. He told me to “aspire to inspire before you expire.” And that’s what I have done ever since then.
Well I’m writing to just see if you could put me in touch with his wife or family. I would love to meet them and tell them the story of the Ed that I met and knew.
