I want to Thank you again for being the kindhearted person you were.. Professionally and personally you lended a helpful speech for me to make it through some tough times. You will be so greatly missed. Forever rest my friend its your time to shine in the heavens !!! Much Love

I have so many wonderful memories of Bruce. We spent so much time together at the Filley House, SW school, and of course,Sundays at the Old Farms School. It was priviledge to know someone with so much love for all especially his beloved dog, Brownie. I miss our time outside talking about Bloomfield, the fire dept and his motorcycles with a cup DD coffee. Thanks for sharing this generous spirit with me.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
With deepest sympathy during your time of mourning.
