  1. I deeply appreciate Bridge Detroit. For most of my life I lived and worked in Detroit and I am deeply committed to the people of Detroit and the city. Now in retirement I have moved to Monroe, but I still work part time at Crossroads of Michigan in Detroit and that is such a happy time for me. All to say your work is deeply appreciated.
