My only regret is that I didn't meet him sooner. My heart hurts, but I can't help but smile when I wonder who he might be talking to now. Maybe the Lord, or Peter and John, or Paul.....He had such a sweet spirit. I sure did love him.

Uncle Bruce we all love you dearly. You've given us so many fond memories to cherish forever. From catching my big giant gold fish in the creek behind your house, playing yahtzee, card games and the sound of that banjo when you played Dueling Banjos. Love you with all our hearts! We will miss you always.
