My deepest condolences to Lynn at this difficult time.
Lynn, I’m so sorry to hear about Bruce’s passing. We both know that there is nothing I can say right now that would ease your pain even the slightest. A lifetime together is never enough, but I hope you will be able to find some comfort in the memories you have and the love you shared. Bruce had such an infectious laugh and a huge smile, both will be greatly missed.
If there’s anything you need don’t hesitate to reach out.

Your family belonged to a unique group of neighbours on walnut court in Corunna many years ago . We all spent many years together raising our kids on that court and I was lucky enough to have you guys as my next door neighbours . I will always remember the year we closed the court off and had our New Years Eve party. And all the years Lee and Annette had their Christmas parties with Santa appearing . Bruce was an AWESOME guy with a great smile and laugh. I’ve seen and talked to him a few times as he’s shopping at Walmart – lol. What a huge loss, and sooo young .
My sincerest sympathy Lynn and Dale.
Gail, Kayla and Brooke.
