Dear Mary and family, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your husband Bruce. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.

I wish I were closer to be of a little more personal help to you and yours.

God bless and thinking of you.

Mary--Wishing you comfort, peace and strength in this sad time for you. The loving care your showed Bruce in his final days, was a tribute to the love you shared, and something truly beautiful to witness. May you take comfort in the sure and certain knowledge that he is now in the loving embrace of our Lord. With heartfelt sympathy to you and your family.

Memories of card playing with our Dad and Aunt Jean. Lunches at Old Country Buffet, you with a dinner plate of chocolate volcano cake. mmm. Childhood memories at Grandma's and playing tag, etc. with our many cousins. How proud you were to be Godfather to my two daughters Jennifer & Karen; and me Godmother to your sons Reed & Dean. Rest in peace!!jU5dI

Mary and family. I was so happy when you and Bruce met and then married. I could tell that you two were very happy together. I wish you could have had more time together here on earth, but you will have forever in heaven.
My prayers are with you

I met Bruce about 5 years ago doing some favors for a friend.
Bruce was a very nice person and friend.
He will be missed by myself and others around him.
It was an honor to have been able to know him for the short time we were acquainted.
I will miss his wit and charm.

My Memories

My memories-
The Green Bay Packers, you're a die hard fan.
Greenery and flowers, a green thumb kind of man.

My memories-
A grin then a giggle and a large warm smile.
Your high pitch laugh could be heard for miles.

My memories-
Buttons, cars, and coins just a few collections.
Love, devotion, and affection.

My memories-
You fought the ailments the best you could.
And now you look down on us, like I knew you would.

Love you Grandpa,

I will always remember how happy Mary was when she told me she had met someone..that someone was Bruce. I don't know if I ever thanked Bruce for making my friend so happy, but I am sure he knows. My prayers and thoughts to Mary & family as you walk through these first days, and then the beautiful memories will walk with you.

God Bless

I will miss spending time with you and Mary, our conversations, getting your views on the world. Also, the road trips, the meals we had together and learning about coins. Above the rest, I will miss the giggles we all shared. You will surely be missed and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to know you.
