I will not say good bye to you my brother, my friend, and my sometimes dance partner as I know I will see you again some day. But not yet, not yet...Until then I will hold memories of you close to my heart.
Some may not know this, but I am the one who chose the name Bruce for you. Mom and dad asked what I liked for a boy and girl names. I told them I liked Bruce so you will always be "my" Bruce, Brucie,, Bruceafeenus.
Love you so much,
Your big sis Becky
