    Mrs. Muzzy, Dan and Becky, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and father. I always enjoyed seeing you in Church at Burlingame. You already know that he is wrapped in our Fathers arms and that He has welcomed Bruce home. You are all in my prayers. Hold onto the memories. It is so hard to lose a parent, but those memories get you thru! God loves you and so do I.

    Ernie and family, We were so sorry to read of Bruce’s passing. While under Bruce’s command, Tom said that Bruce was always fair and decent to all. Tom admired Bruce, and of course, I have many pleasant memories of our time together at Washburn. Please accept our condolences. Tom and Virginia Meyer, Rossville, Ks
