In our thoughts and prayers. I have many good memories with Bruce and all you guys when I was younger. I always remember running into Bruce at MAPA or at the county fair. My love of honey is still good today. Every morning I start my day with a peanut and honey sandwich and now I will appreciate that even more now remembering the great bee himself. My mom and Bruce will have fun together now for sure. Love you guys.

I will always remember the day my Mother and Dad took the family to Bucyrus hospital to see Aunt Margaret and her baby. I remember Bruce had to be delivered by C-Section because he was so large. Sorry to hear of his passing.
