I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Bruce these past few years. I looked forward to discussing art, flowers, jewelry, and recipes with him. He made great brownies and if he felt well enough would treat me to some on his visits. Bruce was always a gentleman, even if we disagreed on a topic. He would "allow to agree that we disagreed.". His flair for life was inspiring. I was proud to call him friend.
Prayers and deepest condolences to you all. I know he loved you very much.

How sad we are to learn of Bruce's passing and how thankful we are to have shared time during our visit in January.
Through the years and even decades Betty and Bruce have blessed our family with their true and steadfast friendship, always as close as the phone in any situation, ready at all times with an ear or a shoulder, with physical or emotional support --- or even a get-going long distance nudge when needed!
It is with sincere affection and gratitude that we send our prayers not only for Bruce on his journey but prayers also for you, Betty and Sandra, as you find comfort and draw strength from fond memories and the support of those who care.

Betty and Family, My sympathy to you in your loss. I will always have many happy memories of knowing Bruce. In 2003, I was looking for information on my brother-in law's dad, who was born in Porter, New Mexico. Someone suggested I go to the museum, to see if anyone could help me. Well, Bruce started pulling out papers, folders, and all sorts of information and led me to newspaper articles about the family. Armed with that information, I was able to locate the farm that the family had owned. A year later I bought a house and who was my neighbor? - the guy from the museum! He was the best - lots of fun, great cook, interesting conversationalist. He was my only friend with whom I could swap stories about living in New York City. So,I will miss him very much but will remember him always.
