    Bruce was a great friend at Heritage Springs. He always had a smile and we had our funny conversations about politics. I'm so sorry I didn't realize his health issues..I'm a cancer survivor and would have been there to help him. I know he is watching over me in Heritage Springs. God be with you Bruce

    Linda - Our Deepest Sympathy - to you and your family. We have such fond memories of Bruce.....he was a good friend and so well thought of by everyone who knew him! We will miss the way he so passionately sang "My Old Kentucky Home" during our Derby parties, the way he lit up the room when he walked in dressed to the nines, and his laughter and love for all his friends!! May all your happy memories comfort you now, God Bless.

    Sorry for your loss. I know what you are facing because I lost my wife Cindy over 5 years ago. I called Jane and told her, she told me she was going to leave you an email.
