Peace and Grace to the family. I am proud to have know Bruce and shown cattle with him in 4-H. He was always happy and so interested in the cattle. I remember those times and talking with Bruce at the county fair.

We are so sorry for your families loss. We did not know Bruce well but my sister Linda was best friends and roommates with Cathy for many years. Our hearts go out to your entire family during this difficult time.
