    I loved Bruce. Got to know him better from Facebook posts. My sympathies are with Sheila and Scott. Will not be able to attend the memoriam but know that I am praying for him.

    I worked with Bruce everyday for 12 years. He had a sweet spirit. Would never do anything to hurt anyone. He loved to laugh, and was truly funny! Those that never took the time to get to know him, missed out! I thank God for putting us together, and the Buffalo Woodchuck society has lost b big man!!
