Bruce was my favorite brother! (I know you are not supposed to have one!) But we just were close. He called me every month and sent me the most beautiful birthday and Christmas cards. I know he would spend endless time reading through cards to pick the one that was just right. He went through a lot as a young man. But got his life together and did everything he could to be the best person possible. He went to college and got a degree in mechanics and became a farm equipment mechanic for 35 years. He traveled all over the world and was very much the outdoorsman. He planned for his retirement which was taken from him when he was struck with esophageal cancer. He put up a very strong fight to the end. He kept working until 3 weeks before his passing. A very strong man. He was partly treated by Cancer Centers of America but by the time the diagnosis was made it was too late. He passed at home with his family and brother's and sister beside him. Services were huge with about 150 in attendance, that was just by word of mouth. Many more sent their condolences. He served 3-4 generations of farmers in the Dallas Oregon area. He was very respected by all of them and deeply loved. Beings he was my favorite brother I could go on and on like writing a book. But I will stop here with an empty heart.He is so deeply missed by me sometimes it just hurts.
