So sorry to hear about Bruce's passsing. We went to church with him and his family for 15 yrs. He was so faithful. It was to our honor to have had him in our path in our lifetime. Having lost my husband 9 yrs. ago, I can relate to the pain this dear family must feel and will feel in the future. I can Promise one thing, TIME AND GOD does have the Healing. You will never forget, but through Christ and Time, You will make it through. May God Bless You All
