  3. It was a privilege to cross trails with Bro. B. during our turn on earth. Although our visits were few in number in the years we served together in one quorum or another, I always enjoyed his company. He was a good brother, whom I admired for his abiding faith and testimony, his willingness to serve, his forthright yet congenial manner, and, last but not least, his legendary ability to hold a conversation with the best of them. Looking forward to catching up with him again. Blessings always, Sis. B:)

  4. Until we meet again, thank you Bruce and Claudette for being such a wonderful part of our community! For being there to help those in need and a great friend to all. Our deepest condolences Claudette, we love you and will continue to pray for you and your family.
