Bruce was a wonderful person and his personality drew me to him. He was always kind and a joy to be around. He had the heart of a lion and endured a lot in the short time I knew him. He was lucky to have his wonderful wife by his side and they made a great team. So sorry because this world will be a little more empty without Bruce.

So incredibly sorry to hear this news. Although time and distance didn’t allow us to get together…I always thought of Bruce as the brother I never had.
My deepest condolences to Laurie and the family.
