Ah, Bruce, Pops, your spirit of the 90's lives on in the kids you fathered and taught so much about character and life. I carry your lessons with me and am passing them along to my kids. To this day I try to let go... and just smile, cross my arms, legs and get into the kicked back Bruce stance when visiting with others. The genuine time you afforded me was treasured then and I thank you deary now, for being such a a big part of my young adult life. In such a fast paced world I only hope your spirit lives on and reminds us all to take time to simply visit and share. Thank you, thank you, for all of the time and shared memories. You shaped so many of our lives,I'll carry your spirit and many memories with me until I see you again Pops, may you and your direct family be blessed with genuine love and the clarity of time,

another loss both to the family but the extended family horse people ..the old gang from the pines cafe in palmdale join our old neighbors the snows in saying a fond farewell marta, larry and leith
I ran in to Michelle at the Hero ride for life on the 6th. She said you guys had moved to town! So many good memories with you and Barbara and Dusty and Michelle! I was very lucky to call you a friend!
You taught me so much from a very young age...made me feel like a part of your family..new how to be stern enough to get through a hard head, yet gentle enough to help me up off the ground when a horse got the best of me. You will be missed with all of my heart...You influenced the girl I was to the woman I became. You helped me face my fears and charge headlong into life, not letting anyone tell me I couldn't do something.....for that I will always remember and love you...Till I see you again Bruce.....
It was a pleasure being around and riding with Bruce on Saturday mornings. He was always ready with a smile and his laughter came straight from his heart. His willingness to share his knowlege and his stories made Bruce a very special person. It is an honor to have been called a friend. You memory will forever ride in the wind of a horse. Heaven has gained a new star.
I am very sorry for your loss, and praying that your memories will bring you comfort and peace.
for ever in our hart what a wonderful man and teacher to many you will be for ever missed and never forgotten!!!!!
Our thoughts and prayers.
I can say, I enjoyed the years I got to know Bruce. He taught me so much about horses and I enjoyed every leson. I was so proud of being able to have Bruce's last trained horse. Which is a pleasure to ride.
