I was so sorry to hear about Bruce. He was my high school boyfriend (he went to Upper Dublin - I went to Wissahickon). Bruce always had a smile on his face, loved life and I loved his laugh. We lost touch after we went to college but I will always have many fond memories. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was a very special young man and I am honored to have known him. I can only imagine what a wonderful husband, father and family man he became. I know he will be missed. I pray that, in time, the emptiness, sadness and tears will fade and smiles, wonderful memories and undying love to take its place. He will always be with you.
