We are saddened to hear of Bruce`s passing. We only hope that he did not suffer for any great time. He was well loved and we will miss his smile and wit. He always had something quick to say to keep you on your feet, that was his humor. For me I think that will be what I will miss the most. All that can be said now is that, “may he be in a kind place where there is no pain”.
Vivian and Family,
I am utterly shocked and saddened on the news of Bruce’s passing.I have many memories of Bruce way back to our childhood and in recent years.May the memories you have of Bruce get you through your darkest days.Sincere condolences!
So sorry for your loss Amy and family.
