So sorry for your loss

I am so sad to read of Bruce's passing. I enjoyed having him at our painting classes and I know you will all treasure his beautiful art work for years to come.
My sister Dawn has some of the rocks from his collection and when he was sitting with Joan at Rowena Jackson he commented that he was cold so she made him a woollen blanket that always seemed to be on the couch when I visited him.
With our deepest sympathy at such a sad time for you all.
