    Sandi, John and I are saddened to hear that Bruce had passed. I only found out just now reading birthday messages to Bruce in heaven. I know he is rejoicing with the Lord and other family and friends that have passed. Please accept our condolences, though it is extremely late. Bruce was a good friend during our time at NNBHC.
