Bruce I didn't know that this page existed and if I had known I would have posted earlier. Wow, my friend I think about you often with that big grin on your face!! We had a lot of good times in the 002nd District and a lot of laughs. The day you passed you brought my lottery shirt to me and we laughed about hanging in the bar. You were a cool guy Bruce and liked by many. It hurt us a lot when you passed away. Just wanted to let you know that I will always remember you my friend. It's sad that I see so many others officers from the department that I know. Rest Easy Friend.
