Bruce we had some great times and great laughs Reenacting You are a great and decent man you will be missed

They say there’s a place where dreams have all gone.They never said where but i think i know.Its miles through the night just over the dawn on the road that will take me home. I know in my bones I have been there before.The ground feels the same,though the lands been torn. I’ve a long way to go the stars tell me so ,on this road that will take me home Love waits for be ’round the bend. Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrow shall find their end And all our troubles will be gone. And I know what I’ve lost and what I’ve won.On this road that will take me home And when i pass by do not lead me astray Don’t try to stop me don’t stand in my way I’m bound for the hills where cool waters flow on this road that will take me home

Bruce was a great co-worker. He was one of the many to retire that could not be replaced. He will be greatly missed until we meet again. God Bless!!

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.
