  2. I send my deepest condolences to Bruce’s family. I was fortunate to work with Bruce when he was New Castle County’s Director of Personnel. He was a great boss—I enjoyed working with him. My fondest memory is how much he loved his family. He always spoke so adoringly of Janice, Tracey, and Kevin. I hope you have many wonderful memories of your time with Bruce to comfort you and keep him close at heart forever. May he Rest In Peace.

  6. I am still in shock and disbelief over this, my heart goes out to all of you. Bruce has been such a huge part of our family and life that I truly can’t imagine a world without him. He was an amazing man, smart, funny, so friendly and kind, the best friend my father could ever ask for. He will be missed.

  8. I will miss seeing him sitting in the plastic red chair, under the tree; his friendly “hello” every time I walk through your sliding door. What beautiful parents you have. So kind and loving. Always so accepting. I’m sorry for your loss. I will miss his smile.
