I was so sorry to hear that Mr. Bruce passed away. I used to come down to the farm and spread fertilizer on the fields. I can honestly say that this very good man was just about the nicest person I've ever met. He always came out to meet me when I pulled up at the farm; he would ask me how things were going , he'd always ask about my family - just so happy and kind. I always looked forward to seeing him - if did not matter what kind of a day I was having, I always left Stokes Farm feeling better. He made the world a better place. My prayers are with the family. May God give you comfort.
