  3. Bruce was a real sweetheart! He would do anything to help you do anything you asked him to do. He was a real Lion and enjoyed Club to the fullest extent. He told me he was glad I convinced him to join Lions, he enjoyed helping people his favorite thing was the coat and shoe thing the Lions do for Boys Ranch and Girls Town. He loved selling tickets for the car give away. He just had a ball. I loved him like a brother and I loved his Mother.
