    Dear Bobbie and Sons,

    Liz and I were shocked and saddened when we learned of the passing of Bruce … a true gentleman and a fine citizen. Although we didn’t have the pleasure of seeing Bruce often, each time we did he made us feel most comfortable in his presence. We have countless fond memories of the wonderful times we enjoyed with your Family in the Windermere area

    Our hope for you now is that all of your fond memories of Bruce will help you through this difficult time.

    Please accept our sincere condolences at this time.

  6. To Bobbie and family
    my name is Darcy will , i met Bruce some 20 years ago through my dear friend Andy Hermanson , Andy always said Bruce was a man of great integrity and honesty and very much looked up to him , i found out what kind of a man he was when Bruce tracked me down at a board meeting in Edmonton late one afternoon on my cell in 2006 and asked me to step outside , he informed me that Andy and his wife Sylvia died in a fiery crash at three valley gap , offered me his compassion and told me he wanted me to know , i always appreciated that he had thought of me , tells you a lot about a man , the years after when i would see Bruce on occasion we would always talk about how we missed them , Bruce always with a big smile , positive attitude and true sincerity in his heart ,
    Bless your Family and my sincere condolences
