I have so many memories spanning our 50 year friendship that selecting just one would be impossible. Most of the memories are wonderfully happy, but a few are painfully sad. The passing of our dear friend, Bruce falls into the latter category. His quick humor, kind heart , and generosity will be a great loss to those of us who knew and loved him. Although miles have come between our lives, the feeling of "extended family" has always remained. I am certain that Pat, Bruce Jr. (Tiger), and Wayne know that we feel their loss, but I believe sharing Bruce's life through fond memories will keep him with us until we see him ( and Michael) again. Love and prayers to all. Liliane and the Wasmunds
