Dear Doris and Family,

I am so very sorry for the loss of Bruce. I have so many fond memories of Bruce. I felt so welcomed at First Church Baldwin and enjoyed my many years speaking to Bruce and just learning so much from him. He will be missed by so many of us and loved by so many.

With sympathy, love and prayers
