Isaiah Augustus Bridges • April 22, 2021
“Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall BUT those who wait on the LORD will find new strength. They will rise high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
Isaiah Augustus Bridges, 14, from Mobile, Alabama passed away with his Mother and Grandma Wanda by his side at UAB-Children’s of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama on Thursday April 22nd, 2021 at 8:30 pm.
He is the son of Ira A. Bridges (Mobile, Al.) and Shayna M. Bridges-Ritter (La Crosse, WI.)
Isaiah was (and will always be) a precious miracle baby sent from God. He loved the Lord, His family, His cat Panther, playing Basketball with his “Best Friend” (Ben Simpson of Bay Minette, Alabama), Swimming at Pensacola Beach in Florida, and he especially loved gaming.
He touched so many hearts in his short time here and is loved and greatly missed beyond measure by many and will remain a unique fingerprint imbedded on all our hearts forever.

“God saw you getting tired.” A poem by author unknown.
-God saw you getting tired,
-When a cure was not to be.
-He wrapped his arms around you,
-And whispered, “Come unto me”.
-You did not deserve what you went through,
-And so, God gave you rest.
-God’s garden must be beautiful,
-He only takes the best.
-When I saw you sleeping
-Peaceful and free from the pain.
-I could not wish for you to come back,
-To suffer through all that again.
