  • My parents lives next door to Bruce for many years and I remember watching him with his motorcycle and talk to my dad about motorcycles. Bruce was so nice to my family and kinda became a part of the family when my parents lived next door. He was so excited and concerned when I became pregnant. He was right there if I needed anything!
    I am so sorry for your loss! My heart and prayers go out to everyone in his family.
