I remember meeting Bruce when they had the deli on North Pitt Street. He was such a generous soul not only
with his time but with his energy. May the Lord be with his family during this time of transition.
We will miss Bruce dearly..he ALWAYS had a
kind word and a smile for you!! He encouraged me and always had a hug for me through my cancer. May you find peace and comfort
at this time.
