We are Uncle Bruce's oldest nieces, the daughters of his oldest sister, Geneva. With Sympathy, we are asking God to comfort your family with His Faithful love. Our Lord knows all you are going through. He loves you and cares for you, right to the last detail as is explained in the Message version of the Bible in James 5:ll. We are sorry we cannot join you for the final goodbye of our Uncle Bruce. Sincerely, Carol and Brenda
