I wanted to tell you how sorry that Bruce has passed. I will always remember Bruce for being a really great guy. Always friendly and kind and interesting. Although I did not see him that often I will miss knowing that he is gone. The two of you were such a close couple. He loved you very deeply.
Paul and I are headed to California on Wednesday so will not make the funeral. Know that I will be there in spirit.
In Deep Sadness for your loss,
