I remember spending time alone with Bruce several times.
Talking & Riding around checking on the Gas Stations he managed when I was a kid.
Mowing their lawn with that Electric lawn mower, trying not to run over the cord.
Working with Bruce at the Flying Bridge - Fish Market.
He use to tell me how Life was for him growing up.

I enjoyed the time I spent with Bruce.

We are keeping you in our prayers.
Love David & Jobi,
Andrea, Steven, Stefanie
