    Diane & Family,
    I send you my condolences and prayers. I worked with Bruce as his secretary at Stop & Shop for a few years. It has been around 32 years since we worked together. Bruce popped into my head today and I decided to try to contact him after all these years. I am so saddened by his passing. His sense of humor and kindness is something I will always cherish. Bless you all.
