Dear Karen and Cain family, My deepest sympathies. Even though I knew of Bruce's health issues, it was still a shock to hear of his passing. He truly was a good good man! Honest, trustworthy, a hard worker, and ONLY wanted the best for everyone, the kind of guy we ALL were lucky to have as a friend!
