In Remembrance, Bridget McCargo

I spend a lot of time with clients. From strategy discussions and performance review meetings to daily conversations evaluating corporate, market and competitor developments. I sweat their challenges. I share in their success.

In some instances, a good client relationship grows into a friendship. It happened with Mike Jalbert of EF Johnson Technologies and Andy Roscoe of GroupServe. And it happened with Jay McCargo of WAM!NET.

A few years back I attended Jay’s surprise birthday party and had the honor of meeting his family. They were warm, caring and friendly.

This morning I learned that Bridget McCargo (Jay’s wife) suffered a massive stroke on Monday, December 15. She was removed from life support assistance on Saturday and passed away soon thereafter. She is survived by Jay, a daughter Alexandra and a son Jay-Jay.

This is devastating news. Bridget had no significant medical issues preceding this tragic occurrence. Her weekend was like any other -- attending her kids’ sports events, hosting a baby shower and spending time with the family on Sunday.

Bad things happen to good people. It’s the only explanation that makes any sense. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jay and his family.
