Bruce...You became my brother when your family took me in all those years ago. I've thanked my lucky stars for my good fortune every day since. In all this world you have always been unique in all the best ways. Loved by many. Now missed by the many whose lives you enriched and brightened just by being you. How great it would be to see you again.

My pal Bruce was an exceedingly cool guy and a good friend who helped me on many occasions. When I was diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease, Bruce encouraged me to fight for myself to get to see the top expert doctors in my disease. He drove me to UCLA and told me not to take "NO" for an answer. We shared a hobby in motorcycling and enjoyed many great discussions, rides, and lunches together. Godspeed Bruce ! We miss you !

Bruce and I shared more than a few interests. From the Tolman Skiff, to riding motorcycles, to driving Dodge trucks powered by the mighty Cummins Diesel we had much to talk about and share. It was joy.

I can't help but stumble upon at least one of Bruce's emails or images daily, and it always triggers another memory. All Good stuff.

Bruce came up to San Francisco and Berkeley for the launch of my home built Tolman Skiff, and kindly spoke to the group of friends and family. It was an awesome day.

Bruce's Tolman Skiff was a catalyst for me to get off my moaning chair and to get to work and build my own. Inspirational, Bruce!

I miss you even though I feel your presence somehow.
