This candle will burn forever. To my friend, my brother and fellow Marine, the journey we had together I shall never forget. We have a bond for eternity. We are soldiers, that don't die we just fade away. Love you Bruce, and I will see you when, I get there.

Uncle Bruce,

You will be greatly missed. You can never plan or prepare for death. Even in your death you were heroic. It brings sadness to my heart that you are gone but I know that you are in a better place. Because of your unselfishness you have brought life to others that may not have had the opportunity to live. I will forever miss you.

I love you.

Your oldest Niece,
