To Bruce...We'll All Miss You

I'm going to have to write more on this later, but I had news today that my uncle Bruce is going to be removed from ventilators today. He took a couple of falls a week ago and ended up at a Las Vegas hospital (he winters near Laughlin) and appeared paralyzed on one side, but was responsive and seeming to improve all week, but we had word today that there was pressure building on his brain stem and there was nothing they could do. He was expected to only last a couple of days and today his sister made the decision to take him off life support. Bruce isn't my uncle by blood, but when he married my aunt, he became part of our family. He made Elaine very happy till the day she lost her fight to breast cancer 6 years ago. Since losing Elaine, Bruce has not been happy, and I guess the one blessing in this is that he will now be with her again. He loved her so much...
