Some people come in our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our hearts.
And we are never, ever ther same." ~ Author Unknown ~
Florida ~ December 1991
Bruce reunited for a week with his mom, Roz.
Shortly after a 2.5 day disappearance when he was seriously contemplating suicide the first time. He admitted he had 'considered' ending his life, but fabricated his reasons for wanting to do so, which were believed. Mom relieved and grateful he is okay..Bruce not really 'okay'...succeeded ten months later.
Graduation from Henry Street High School where he was Vice President of Students' Council, with his best friend, Andy, as President. Bruce's last two years, especially, he was extremely studious and goal-oriented. A creative thinker, dedicated leader, fun person and loyal friend. From all outward appearances, Bruce was doing just great.
Beaming with happiness at his elementary school graduation
from Colonel Farewell in Whitby, Ontario. He received awards for Music and French. Bruce played sax in the school band and was infamous with his brother, Scott, for 'breakdancing'. He ventured into acting and had a talent for art. He was a real 'out there' kid... and happy.
Bruce visiting at his maternal Grandma in Jersey City, having by then lived in Canada for two years. He loved his Grandma's cat as much as his own three at home!

Although You Are Out of Our Sight
You Remain With Us Always
