I don’t understand why god chose you this soon. I didn’t get to say goodbye and how grateful I was for you in my life as a young child. I didn’t always listen but you were the reason we called home, home. I’m not sure what happen over the last 7 years but I missed you everyday you were gone. Your a truly beautiful person. I know someday we will meet again and all the questions won’t matter. I pray you Rest In Peace and watch over all of us. We won’t ever stop needing you. Love you grandpa Bruce. I’ll miss you forever. ❤️ love, Brooke.
