To Marion, Ellen, Nancy and family.

It is with sad hearts that we read of the death of Bruce. For many years we have shared an acquaintance on the camp road. We always looked forward to our annual chats as we passed on the road and have missed this over the last few years. Our sympathy to all of you.
