Shirley and family: We are so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. We hope he and Daddy (Clyde Herron) are tending their heavenly garden and talking over old times. Bruce was so good to our church, Aldersgate UMC, whether mowing the grass or providing flowers for church service. When Daddy got so sick, it was a bright spot in his life when Bruce came and built a flower garden for him. We still tend that garden, replenishing the annuals and remembering Bruce when the perennials bloom . We loved Bruce so and missed seeing him when he retired from the Greenhouse. Keeping you all in our prayers.
