    I had the honor of being one of Bruce’s caretakers at Sensations. He was a wonderful young man that we all loved. This past Friday I had mentioned to a co-worker that I missed him and wondered how he was doing since his move to a different facility. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. I did not know in time to attend the funeral or surely would have. My condolences to his wife, sister, and his children and grandchildren. Bruce loved all of you –it was very obvious in the way he lit up when you guys would come to visit him. RIP, Bruce… will be remembered and missed.
