Bert,
Good to hear from you again!
I had done some business with Bruce on some of the things I make. I got to know him pretty well over the phone and through personal emails. He is a great guy.
The last email I had received from him is now 5 months old.
Looks like his last post was 6/6/15.
I don’t think he will mind me doing this. if you don’t have his personal email give this a try.
I will send him an email too and let you know if I hear anything.

Hope all is going great in your life these days.
James

Bert,

I too have not heard from Bruce in a long time…We served together in Viet Nam in the same unit….We found each other here on LJs a couple of years ago…We stayed in touch pretty often, and compared notes on projects we’d done….Then nothing….Like he dropped off the earth…..I sure hope nothing has happened to him…He’s such a great guy, and had become my computer bud…..If you hear anything, please post, and I will do the same..

I called but no one answered the phone.

Bert,
check your personal email i just received a letter and a quick note about it from him.
Lets all pray for him sounds like all his health stuff is really getting to him right now. I do hope to shake his hand sometime soon. I need to make it a point to try to do so.

Rick,
I never served in any kind of role that yo and Bruce did and I want to thank you for doing so and My family does too! He did say its hard to do any typing and is stuck in a chair for now. If you have a way of contacting him other then on here I would do so.

THanks
James

I just received a message from Bruce.
The news are not good.
I asked Bruce if I could share the information with you guys.
I am waiting for his answer.
In the mean time if you believe , please pray for him and for his wife Michelle.
Thank you.

James, may be we should go visit him together.
What do you think?

I believe that Bruce would really enjoy having more LJs sending him a short personal message knowing that it would be very difficult for him to reply.

“I will pray for the restoration of his health”
Bruce has been very sick for many years.
He is victim of Agent Orange and of age and a very full life.
Several years ago after visiting his physician he came to see Mary and I.
He told us that his physician had told him that everything that could be done for him had already been done and some.
Nothing else could be done to help his health.
One day he sent me a copy of an x-ray he had, he looks like an electric panel full of wires and hoses inside.
It is a miracle that he survived so long since.
I do not say that he should go or that God could not do another miracle for him.
I say that sooner or later we all have to go and the prayers should be for a peaceful and painless good bye.
I am a believer and when it comes to death I am very fatalistic and I see it in most case as the best possible solution.

At first glance I thought that was Bruce with William Shattner (Capt. Kirk) :-)
