    Linda you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time.

    AN HONEST man here lies at rest
    As e’er God with his image blest;
    The friend of man, the friend of truth,
    The friend of age, and guide of youth:
    Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d,
    Few heads with knowledge so informed:
    If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
    If there is none, he made the best of this.

    Bruce will be truly missed

    Dear Linda and family,it’s difficult to find the right words to express our true feelings and thoughts of Bruce’s passing. He was always a true gentleman and always sported a great smile. He was the first honest mechanic I ever met when we moved up to the country here over 17 years ago. He always had a great smile and always treated Linda with genuine respect when she took in one of our cars to have it repaired.
    He’s going to be sadly missed here in the village of Schomberg; I’m glad I had a few minutes to chat with him a few weeks ago here in the village.

    Our love and strength go out to you Linda and your family at this woeful sad time in your lives.

    Much love, Joseph & Linda Ryan & Charles.
