    I'm so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. I met Bruce in 2006 when his family moved to North Carolina. I had moved there that same year from Indiana and I taught at the same school with Amy. We became good friends and I was constantly at their house. I remember watching Bruce play Rugby. I tagged along on a family trip to The Outer Banks with them. I spent many nights around their campfire at their house talking and drinking a beer. Bruce's children are wonderful young women and I'm sending the 4 of you a big hug.

    There is a picture of my dad, me and my sisters on a ride at DisneyWorld. He’s sitting next to me with his arms in the air (he encouraged me and my sisters to do the same and we were too scared to). Anyway, the guy sitting behind us had his arms up as well because dad told him to join us, and that perfect strange did. My dad did stuff like that all the time. I miss my dad, he was a lot of fun. I love you dad.
