And, I look at his paintings everyday in my home drawing inspiration from them. I am glad he was born.

I will always remember Brucey with Love and deepest admiration: we shared Artful conversation, raucous laughter, and rich road trips. My Mentor/Master/Third Parent (though he didn't care for that designation) has left for the great art studio in the sky. I hope the light is northern, and the sushi is excellent.
