My sincere sympathy to Maynard and the family. I met Wilma thru Christian Services as she and Maynard where volunteers and faithful servants helping the less fortunate in the Lansing community. Praying God’s peace on your family at this difficult time.

Deepest sympathy to Mr. Bruch (Maynard), Mike, Kim, and family. I remember Wilma as a very kind person whom I met through my softball days playing for/against coach Bruch and playing with/against Mike. Mrs. Bruch was always willing to open her home to the kids running around the neighborhood and I thought that was so cool.

Your wife/mother was a fond part of the most joyful part of my life, as was your family.

Sorry I was unable to attend services, but know that I am thinking fondly of you all, and you are in my prayers during this difficult time.
