I'm sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. I have beautiful memories of your family. I can see Bruce riding the mower down that huge front yard and sitting in his recliner. I hear his voice scolding me and then hugging me tight reminding me that everything would be okay. He and Carolyn had the biggest hearts and love of family and friends. So much love that they fostered many children.

May your memories and the warmth of his love carry you through this hard time.
