Private Condolence

I was so sorry to read that Bruce had passed away. I have not been in touch with him since probably our "dances" at the JCC in Lawrence. We were great friends back then and ended up laughing our way through most of our teens together. He was so jovial, happy, and a wonderful friend to be around. How many BarMitzvahs???? I learned how to dance with him and sat on the bus with him on our way to "another" field trip through the JCC. I am sure this was a very very rough time for the family. I am so very sorry.
