We will miss our visits and conversation at least 2 x /week at our Gallery. Bruce was always a wealth of knowledge and always had a valuable opinion and cliqued some of our framing designs. We loved to chat recipes and cooking...I will miss chatting about the different sometimes unique ways of preparing new menus. I guess I will no longer buy bags of Reese Peanut Butter cups and Decaf coffee...they were always here for him. We are sadden by losing a valuable friend. Marv and Irene Gordon
