Dear Kathy and family
We were saddened to hear of your deep loss of Bruce. May God be with you as you grieve his loss, and may God keep you in this new season of life as you journey on without him at your side. Strength and peace to you.

Bruce and I grew up together at Elmira Mennonite Church. He was a wonderful person and I just want to extend to Kathy and family my sympathy. I pray that the days ahead will be filled with many memories of all the good times together as family. May God sustain you through the coming days and weeks.

May God richly bless and comfort you, Kathy, Carrie, Darren and family. I was blessed to know Bruce over the years, and was touched listening to the memorial service today. Bruce was such a special individual to so many people! Tim Snyder (& Kristen and family)

Cathy and family, It was with sadness that I learned of the passing of Bruce. I have known him most of his life as a neighbour and friend. While we saw each other less in the later years I feel blessed to have known him. I have a fuzzy memory of perhaps his 4th or 5th birthday and I see his last birthday was just before his death. The memory involves our mothers, a wagon load of beets and my little brother and friend of
Bruce, Donny. We extend our heartfelt sympathy for your loss and pray for strength ss you celebrate his life..

Helen and I have known Bruce for many decades, and always appreciated his heart of compassion , wonderful and kind manner of relating to everyone. His initiative in helping settle refugees through Preston Mennonite Church, and constant care for newcomers to Canada was so much appreciated. He was blessed with so much wisdom and became an amazing Counsellor.We will miss him dearly. May God bless you Kathy and your family. .... Bruce and Helen Snyder
