My heart goes out to you as you mourn your best friend and husband. I knew Bruce through COAL and through his art. At COAL he was amazing with numbers and with his clear thinking as we processed ideas for the Board.
As an artist he was outstanding. After years of admiring his wonderful photography, he suddenly shows us his talent as an oil painter. His first oils on display were some of the best in the gallery and each time he submitted one it was better than the last. He was a true artist and his works will be missed in the gallery as will his wise words and talents at our Board meetings. Hugs to you and your family always. Ann

Dear Maggie, Kate and Brad,
I offer my condolences on the passing of Bruce. He was a very influential person in my life from the time I started my career in public accounting until I retired 3 years ago. He was a mentor, friend, colleague and a true leader. He made me not only a better accountant, but also a better person.
While he is no longer with us, his memories will remain, always. I know his family was so important to him and he was proud of each of you. Rejoice in his memories and know that he loved each of you very much.
With love and respect,
