Kory your last message to Uncle Bruce made me cry again. Because I kind of know how you feel... I keep expecting him to message me on FB and telling me to call him. I see Uncle Bruce's face on FB and it's still hard for me to believe he is gone...I miss you Uncle Bruce. I love you!!

still seems surreal. Can't believe your gone. I keep expecting you to call and ask me why I have not called you on my way home from work... it's weird. sometimes it feels ok and I know that's you telling me it's alright and take care of the family... other times it hurts like hell and I just need to hear your voice. now is one of those times..i miss you daddy.. I love you..

I cannot put into words the feelings that I am having. I know he's in a better place but selfishly I'm not ready to let go. Honestly, probably I would probably never have been ready to let go.. I learned so many things from him, many of which are inappropriate for public postings, but that was my dad. I hope I can be half the man he was, and make my kids as proud of me as I am of him. My hero, my mentor, my daddy. I love you forever...

We will miss you. It was always fun when you and Aunt Debbie came to visit us. Your jokes were funny and would make me blush. You were kind person. I will miss your words, laughter, and the joy you brought to us. I wish you were still here, but I know you are with us all forever. Rest in peace Uncle Bruce. We love you.

I am glad I got to reconnect with Bruce in recent years. I saw hm as a baby at my family home, (our fathers were brothers) but lost contact over the years. So, I don't have any memories of him, but happy to now know about his family. I know he was immensely proud of his family. I will miss getting his email forwards!!

A cousin, Vonnie
