To Edna, Colleen, Betty and Bruce`s kids and grandkids,
We share your sorrow and memories even if Howard and I are 3000 miles away. Bruce has been very much in our prayers and thoughts through his long struggle and pain. I am glad that he is no longer suffering.Prostate cancer is a terrible thing. We have many that we know personally who have it right now. I have shared Bruce`s story with them as it went along...to keep them aware that they need to be alert even if "clear" of it for several years.
Bruce Emailed me after his birthday that he felt better and thought maybe he`d make it to birthday 70 like I will in February. I`m glad he had better days where he was more positive.He was so happy to be able to be with his kids and grandkids. He loved them all very much!!I wish they could have known the Bruce my brother Dave and I remember...the joking and fun at the farm and family get togethers. Egg fights, rides in his old coupe , sardines and all the normal orneriness we cousins got up to. :)He will be greatly missed... a much loved first cousin!!

Dear Edna, Marilyn and Colleen,
I'm so sorry to read of Bruce's death. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Alma Lambert LaBour
I so miss the updates Bruce would give on face book about what a wonderful time he had for the days he moved in with his son. It was like he lived his life to the fullest for a short time. My sincerest sympathy to his family. a class mate Paula Newland Adwell
You fought a good fight to the end. You were an inspiration to many people with your courage. You will be missed but not forgotten.
Words really can not tell how I feel. He never gave up the fight and I admire him for that. Prayers to all of his family for their loss.
