I am proud to say Bruce was my friend. He was a gentle soul and I miss him. We had some great adventures in high school that mostly happened while he was proudly driving his Mustang. I think we must have eaten at every fast food restaurant between Central and the Black Canyon.
Bruce was funny...and creative. When he gave gifts, the artistic way in which they were wrapped was as much fun as what was inside. I remember that he loved to throw little dinner parties at his Encanto home and we all had to dress up. His parents always seemed to be gone. It was great fun.
Bruce was courageous in death. His life was far too short. RIP my friend

Although I did not know Bruce, he sounds like a very special person. Special people have special meaning for us, and when they are gone a big hole is left in our heart. We have the memories to keep his life with us, and we know that he is in a much better place and is happy, and that can give us comfort.
God Bless Bruce and the friends and family he left behind.
Special people are hard to find today, and to have kwown such a person is a gift from God.
