It's been hard to find the right words to say for the extreme loss of my Uncle Bruce. It still doesn't seem real. I will miss him deeply but I'm comforted knowing that he'll always be with me; in my heart and through the memories I will hold close and cherish forever. I'll remember his tough love, his heart of gold and his ability to put a smile on your face when he knew you needed to. I'll remember him for being ambitious and always following his dreams whether it was making his own bread, to owning his own limousine company to being a councilman in the town that he loved most. I'll remember him for being silly and always making me laugh. I'll remember him for how generous he was and helping people when they needed it. I'll remember him for being such a great dad, making sure my cousin had everything he wanted and more. Most of all, I'll remember him for the love he had for his family and the father role he played for me, which says a lot because I was a handful. I love you Uncle Bruce, and I'll think about you everyday. Until we meet again

My Brother

You gave me no last farewell
Nor ever said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why
A million times I will miss you
A million times I will cry
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
No one else could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home

Aunt Karen & Jonathan,

I am so very sorry we cant be there with you and support you through this every step of the way. I hope you know just how much I love you both and how much I love uncle Bruce. He will always hold a special place in my heart and I will cherish my memories of him forever. May he be at peace now and may you both find peace in knowing that. I love you always -Roni

Although mere words cannot express
the depth of loss we feel
It sometimes helps to read a verse,
To aid the heart to heal

We want to hold on and not let go
The pain seems far too great
Every fiber they mean to us, we want to store and crate

But life goes on with unwanted change
To adapt and forge ahead
Live the now, with those still here
Together the grief will shed

Let fond memories you have
Heal, with their warm glow
The sorrow in your heart,
With time will start to go

Our life on earth is but a moment
In gods eternal plan
The heavenly wonders that awaits our souls
Is beyond the mortal man

And when its time for us to pass
Reunions are in stall
All of those who have gone before us,
Will meet in heavens hall

But til that time, be strong and sure,
And experience all you can
Have zest for life, and make it full
Its part of Gods grand plan
