Oh Bruce where do I start? πŸ€” Lol. I met you long ago when I worked at Kernans in Princeton, Ia. It was you and your two best friends (Earl and Dick). You guys always came in with a smile and ready for some laughs. We had two things to debate about always (Republicans vs Democrats and of course the Packers and Vikings) when ever we saw each other. πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œ Lol. I'll miss your messages and posts on Facebook. And don't worry I'll get Wade to marry me one way or another...😁 I'm so sad that you're gone, but I know you are at peace and without pain. Fly high my friend & watch over your family and Linda. πŸ’ŸπŸ™Œ

Although we had are differences and butted heads often I am still quite saddened to hear of your passing. 60 years of age is too young. My dad passed at the young age of 60 as well. It just so very unfortunate. My thoughts go out to the family, especially Chris and Rob who are like brothers to me. I feel for you two and I know this pain. Much love and respect to you guys and the entire family. RIP Bruce and Go Bears!!
