Good-Bye My Good Friend. Though It Has Been Years Since We Last Have Seen Or Spoke To One Another, I Will Always Remember & Cherish My Friendship With You And Betty. Meeting You Through My Brother Barry In The Early 70's Our Relationship Seemed To Be On The Same Path. We Both Were Newly Married, We Both Started Our Families During Our Friendship And Always Enjoyed Each Other During The Numerous Gathering We Had - Barbecues, Mt. Tamalpias, Lake Tahoe And To Many More To Mention. My Time Together With Bruce At Giant (Candlestick ) And A's Games On Friday Nights, Playing Softball And Our Extreme Competitiveness When It Came To Bowling, Board Darts, Lawn Darts & Ping
Pong Was A Hoot.

Bruce,I know If We Had Hooked Up Again, At Our First Meeting We Would Have Picked Up Where We Had Left Off Many Years Ago. Love You Buddy!

Betty, My Thoughts Are With You & Your
