My heart is so heavy. Bruce , you and I had many years of conversation about your sweet daughter. I am so glad to know my prayers were answered in that you finally made peace with her. She is amazing. And what a bonus in your precious son in law and beautiful grandson What a privilege and a blessing God gave you in knowing Sarah,Brent and Toby. Bruce, my heart aches for the loss of many hopeful dreams being realized in our lives. I have always loved you dearly. We did have some fun sweetheart. All my prayers were answered with a huge YES concerning the reconciliation between you and your daughter. I am proud of you for reaching out to her and accepting her efforts to reach out to her daddy. I love you dearly. Brad also loved you as did Eric. Rest well my beloved, until we meet again my precious one, until we meet again.
