    The guests, staff and Board of Directors of the St. Francis House will keep all of you in our prayers. Bruce was a good man, but lead a good fight against cancer. He is no longer in pain!

    My most sincere condolences to Russ, Carol, Jim, Karen, and Sue on your recent loss. Bruce was a special friend since the first day of High School in 1969. We enjoyed growing up in the Rockford, MI area and stayed close friends long after we graduated. We were in each other’s weddings and spent a great amount of time getting together and enjoying life. Bruce was the kind of friend that was always willing to do anything for you. I could always count on Bruce to cheer me up or be a source of support. He was liked and admired by everyone that knew him. When I look back on the time that I’ve known Bruce, it makes me smile and think about all the fun times we had. Life took Bruce all too early but as Julie stated “he is no longer in pain!” He is in a much better place and I will see him there some day and enjoy our friendship again. Ruthann and I are praying for those whom he left behind that they can find comfort in knowing this and will be able to be with Bruce again some day. Miss you buddy……..Dave
