You will be missed but you are in a better place. You had many open arms to welcome you and I know your arms will be open the next time that I see you. Glenna and I prayed a lot for you and we still pray for you.

Lina and family, I was really saddened to hear of Bruce’s passing. As much as us lodge brothers knew it was coming it’s still hard to face the time when it does.
Please know that Bruce was loved by me and all his lodge brothers at Charles Haynes #627. His smiling face will be missed, most especially the joking and fun times he brought to all of us.
You know you will always be welcome to come on lodge nights and visit with us and enjoy the food & fellowship with the ladies that show up.
We love you and pray you and the family will allow the Holy Spirit to hold and comfort you in this time of grief.
