  1. Thank you. I saw her perform at Jackie 60 and was wondering where she might be today. There is little on the web. I did not know she had been a submarine commander or that she had passed.

  2. I was her ex husband/wife Danielle Willis...I'm so sorry I couldn't save her..

  3. I knew Brigit from before she transitioned and taught her blues guitar. We had a falling apart over her drug abuse, like Danielle Willis said, I'm sorry I couldn't save her. Hi Danielle, I remember my late wife Kim and I having some fun conversations with you and Brigit back-in-the-day. I hope all is well with you.
