Relation: Friend

News of Bruce’s passing came as a real shock. We met through Home Depot and became instant friends. Bruce offered to share his community garden plots once he knew I have a passion for gardening.
I will add a special memorial to Gloria’s at the gardens. What a sweet lady she was, Bruce spoke of her all the time and I feel honored to have met the two of them.
If there is anything I can help with for the memorial, please let me
RIP Bruce, give Glo a kiss on the forehead for me.

Was so shocked to hear of Bruce’s passing. Had talked to him a couple of weeks before. He and my husband, Dennis, worked together in the printing industry in Calgary about 55 years ago and remained friends. He and Gloria met us in Vegas and had a wonderful time. I lost Dennis a month before Bruce lost Gloria and we would talk frequently and helped each other over some rough times. To all his family know how much he meant to me and treasure all your special memories
