Its not every restaurant that merits a mention in an obituary. But BridgeportҒs vegetarian Bloodroot restaurant did when a Westporter died this summer and that brought a mention in today֒s Hartford Courant review of the well-known eatery and bookstore.
Customers are committed to Bloodroot, and the restaurant’s staff has a close kinship with them, too,Ӕ the newspaper said.
When 91-year-old Cynthia B. Harrison of Westport died this summer, her children put a paragraph about their mother’s love of going to Bloodroot and being part of the restaurant’s group of friends, into her obituary.
ӓThe obituary is posted, along with a special poster crafted by the restaurant to remember Cynthia; photos of her, and the words We Miss Her,ђ are on the poster, right as you walk in the door. She is remembered at Bloodroot for her cheerful and intelligent spirit.ђ”
