Condolence From: Lindell
Condolence: Bruce hired me when I was at a low point and desperately needed a good job to get back on my feet. Bruce was a good listener and gave great advice. Working for him wasn't easy, but he brought out the best in me.

Condolence: “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” – Helen Keller.

The world is absolutely a little less bright without Bruce in it. He was a good man; kind and funny. Always a smile. He loved his children and grandchildren. His face lit up when he talked about them. He loved my sister. Oh man, how he loved her. You saw it in his eyes whenever he looked at her. You actually could feel the love between them. I don’t think Bruce ever met a stranger. He was the kind of person that you walked away from after meeting and knew your life was enriched just by him being in it. After meeting him the first time, it felt like he had always been a part of my life. He always made you smile. He was that kind of guy.

I will miss him. I will think of this good man today and smile.

Condolence: I didn't know Bruce well but I really didn't need to know him to know that he was a good man. He made my cousin's Carol and Jessica happy and that is all I need to know. To give happiness to others is a gift worthy of honor and praise. So to all of those who were touched by Bruce I extend my prayers, condolences, and deepest heartfelt sympathies.

Condolence: Didn't know Bruce personally, but he took a chance on my son and hired him after my son had been struggling and didn't have sense of purpose. Bruce gave him a reason to want to get up and go to work and gave him the structure he so desperately needed. I thank God for this man who literally changed my son's life with an act of opportunity. May God bless his family as Bruce helped bless mine!

Condolence From: harold
Condolence: To the family of Bruce Pray I would like to offer my condolences. I am sorry for your loss. I was moved by how his obituary was written and the feeling that went into it. I could sense the loss that you all feel and I hope you are able to cope with it. I lost my father and sister five years ago and I was comforted by the hope that the Bible offers. I would like to share that same hope with you. The Bible at 1 Cor.15:24-26 refers to death as an enemy that will soon be done away with. The Apostle Paul tells us at Acts 24:15 "that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous". The kingdom we pray for in the Lords prayer will, as we read Rev.21:3,4, "wipe out all sickness, death, sorrow and tears". I hope I have been able to share some comfort with you today. If you would like some more information about the Bibles hope for loved ones who have died, please visit jw.org.

Condolence From: Jessica Pray
Condolence: I have the honor of calling this wonderful man Daddy. I remember the day I met him and yet I can't remember any days before then that he wasn't there. No matter what was going on in our worlds, there was a twinkle in his eye and a "cat-ate-the-canary" grin on his face. He taught me to find the silver lining, no matter how difficult the situation. He lived without fear. He loved with his whole heart. There are no words to describe his passing. I'll see you soon Daddy, I love you forever.

Condolence: Hello, I had the pleasure of meeting and working for Bruce with AlliedUniversal and Reichold. I met him about two years ago. He was strong, passionate, and straight to the point. He was a man of wisdom. I truly respected Bruce as a leader and person. God bless you and your family. Thank you.
