I’m sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing. He was a nice guy with a great sense of humor.
I worked with him at the City of Edmonton.
I’m sure he will be deeply missed. Cherish the memories.
Wilma: It is with deep regret and disbelief that I write this message of condolence on behalf of Rod and I. We were shocked to hear of Bruce’s passing as we had just shared words with Bruce a day or two before. Bruce was busy with his favorite pastime of making sausage. We were looking so forward to visiting with you and Bruce, Wilma, to share some Christmas cheer but sadly that did not happen.
Bruce was a kind and wonderful man who will not only be missed by you but by all of the many dear friends he has met over the years who have thought the world of him.
Christie: There are no words to express the sorrow and grief that you must be going through on the loss of your dear father and grandfather to your children.
Wilma and Christie: May you take comfort in knowing that he is now at peace, with those departed loved ones that has been missing and longing to see.
Our deepest sympathies Rod and Betty Sveinson

So sorry to hear about Bruce’s sudden passing. Judy and I send our thoughts and prayers to Wilma and Christie.
