  6. Sending love and light to Bardes family. I didn’t have the pleasure to know Bruce personally and that is my lost. However, his best man speech at Brian and Rachel’s wedding spoke volumes to me. His words were inspiring and gave you a glimpse into Bruce’s heart. He was clearly one in a million… in his speech he not only managed to honor the bride and groom but his entire family. I wish there was something I could to help you all at this time. Dear friends if you need anything please reach out to my family. You are not alone,
    Breanne

  7. candleMy condolences on the passing of Bruce – a father, a brother, and a friend to all who knew him. I feel for Kim and the family. May he live in our memories.

  8. My deepest condolences to you and your family during this time. Sending much love and prayers to you all.

  9. candleFamily, Bruce touched everyone he met with genuine warmth, kindness and humor. My heart goes out to you and I wish you peace. I love you all

  10. candleBruce was a gentle giant, I’m so glad that I had a chance to know him. He will be sorely missed, my heart and prayers go out to his family!

  11. Rest in peace Bruce. This is a very difficult time. We know he will watch over all the people he loved. We are grateful for meeting him and his family.

  12. I think Bruce’s laugh is what stays with me most of all, as it was always so readily given and always so infectious, whether at family gatherings, or during that trip to Switzerland when we were kids, or while giving me some good-hearted ribbing on my wedding day. Such a great guy, such a proud father, and such a loving husband. You will be missed, Cousin.

  13. Brian’s aunt Liz and uncle Jim, on the maternal side, only got to meet Bruce briefly .We actually knew him only through the eyes of Rachel and Bryan, Who loved him so very much. We are filled with sorrow For his mother his wife and his children. I wish you the peace that comes with the passage of time, And in the knowledge that he was well cared for and all that love could do was done. We send love and light. Jim and Elizabeth

  14. candleOur deepest sympathy is with you all during this difficult time of Bruce’s transition. Although no words can really help ease the loss of Bruce, please know he will forever be with you. May memories of him be of comfort to you. Keeping you close in thought.

  15. Dearest Kim and family. Pleas accept our deepest condolences. I met Bruce through my cousin his brother in law Darren. He was always smiling and a very kind person. Now he is an angel. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers🙏🏽❤️🙏🏽

  16. We only had the privilege of meeting Bruce on a couple of occasions but it was plain to see that he and his wife Kimberly were the kind of couple who were easy to know and spend time with. It’s always so difficult to lose a loved one and our hearts go out to the entire Bardes family.

  17. I never really got to know Bruce, but I gather he was a great brother and person. My prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family in this sad time. I hope every time you think of Bruce, a smile comes across your face, and nothing but great memories flow through your mind.
