Bruce was someone very special to me. We had a wonderful relationship while it lasted. I knew something was amiss, but he never said why.

I really loved him and I have always missed him. I am so sorry for all of his wonderful kids and grandkids. Family first was his priority always.

Take good care of his memory to keep him alive in your hearts!
