    My avatar for Brucie on my cell phone is a pic of Donald Duck. The Donald will forever remind me of Brucie. Thanks for posting those pics Mary Ann. They made me smile.

    And I second the thank you Elf E for moving this thread.

    When I Must Leave You

    When I must leave you for a littlewhile,

    Please do not grieve and shed wild tears

    And hug your sorrow to you through theyears,

    But start out bravely with a smile;

    And for my sake and in my name

    Live on and do all things the same,

    Feed not your loneliness on empty days,

    But fill each waking hour in usefulways,

    Reach out your hand in comfort and incheer

    And I in turn will comfort you and holdyou near;

    And never, never be afraid to die,

    For I am waiting for you in the sky!

    Wow, what tragic news. I never had the pleasure as some of you did but I knew him well from his posts. It is an example of how frigile life is and how we should all appreciate every moment we have.

    I join my @ddicts family with thoughts and prayers for the family.

    Sail on Bruce.

    Oh how tragic! I am just stunned. Though I didn't have a lot of contact with Bruce, I certainly enjoyed reading about the friendship that so many of you shared with him. This is yet another major loss to our community. My deepest sympathy to his family and all of his friends.....particularly you, Mary Ann. Hugs.
