So sorry for your loss. Bruce laid carpet for my dad's store. I have many fond memories of helping Bruce. He was a fine man.

So many things come to mind about Bruce. His laugh, his smile, how he enjoyed his family but he loved laying carpet many years ago. He liked to tease and make you laugh. He was my dad's brother but he done many things completely different. Maybe it's just because of the different situations they both lived through. Like I said he liked to tease and daddy didn't but they both enjoyed family. I am never going to forget you. You will always be in my heart. I am glad your now with grandpa, grandma and daddy. Have fun enjoy and don't go fishing all the time but paint some beautiful pictures for when I get there I will put them up.
