  1. Hello Jennifer. My name is Lindsay Weitzel and I am the host of Heads UP: the Podcast and Webcast of the National Headache Foundation. I read your article about your recent bout with TGA, I am so sorry. I could not tell if your doctors believe it was related to a migraine episode? If so, I would love to hear (and possibly publicize) the story. My contact information is below.


  2. Hello Jennifer, I’m an 84 year old gentleman who loves reading your column in the Everett herald. I like that you write about everyday happenings with your family. Camping trips, household problems etc. I recently did my life story from Storyworth in book form that my daughter gave me as a present. I’ve never considered myself a writer but I found out that I really love it. If you should ever run low on stories I would love to share some of mine with you. Thank you and keep up the good work.


  3. Ms. Bardsley, my father served in the 741st Tank Battalion, 8th Armored Division during WWII. During my research into the movements of the 741st, I read your article of June 19, 2019 concerning your grandfathers service in the same Tank Battalion. Just like your grandfather, my father never spoke of the War. The National Personnel Records Division will provide you with awards and citations as a family member earned by your grandfather. My fathers are displayed in a Medals of America display, to be respected and honored by generations to follow.
