Dear Bruce, it’s hard to believe that you are gone.. Heaven must be full of Angels now, it’s hard to imagine that just on the 4th July you were full of life and enjoying Sax music on the Green in Bitteswell, you were your happy self as always and always pleased to see people. You will be missed, mostly by your family, seeing Angie without you behind will be hard, speaking to Zoe without mentioning you will be hard. Rest with the Angels now.. GONE TOO SOON ❤️

Lots of love from us -
Steve, Barny and Olly

Fly, fly little wing,
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of Heaven's love.
Past the planets and the stars,
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain,
And fly again.
