My condolences to the Smillie family. Although I never met Bruce, he and my father were great friends and colleagues back in the days of the Columbian, so much so that my parents named me after Bruce.

A lovely man! Martha, I was at the Richard McBride (back in the day, Sir Richard McBride) school reunion years ago, saw a fellow I recognized but couldn't put a name to him, (we've all been there) - as hard as I tried to place him my mind was blank.....unbeknownst to me he was trying to place me as well. The reunion went on and about 3 hours into it I felt a tap on my shoulder and when I turned around your lovely Bruce said only one thing......We go to the same church! We had a good laugh and carried on with the festivities of our reunion. He was an absolutely delightful man and has left a grand legacy - your family are a credit to you and Bruce.

My condolences to the Smillie family. Bruce was a thoughtful man and kind enough to send me regards early in my journalism career. I know his bright light will shine on his grand family forever.

Bruce was a mentor to a whole generation of reporters at the Vancouver Sun, including me. I will always be grateful to him for the helping hand and great guidance he provided to me and many others.
