    I met Bruce about 10 years ago. But when I met him I realized that he had known me for most of my life
    Because he had worked with my dad for so many years. I thought that that was the reason that he treated me so good as an apprentice and taught me so many things. But as I grew to know him I realized that that was just his character, the way he was. I learned so much from him but his work ethic and his kindness are something I will never be able to match.
    I am thankful to have known you. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of your family and friends
    . I say with a heavy heart rest in peace Bruce
    Your friend Matt
