Dearest Sandra and Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very tragic and sad time in your lives. I remember Bruce as a very quiet man and very devoted to his family.


The void that is created in one's life through death of a loved one is very traumatic, but we know that Bruce is in a very special place, free of all pain and discomfort. Hopefully over time, you will be able to continue your lives in his absence through faith, love, and comfort from your family and friends. He will always be with you in your hearts.

May God bless you hold you in His loving arms.
