I’m so very sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.

  17. Rosie, I haven’t seen you or Bruce (and the kids) since RER, though I did talk to Bruce in November about bringing my bike in for service at Valley Motorsports. I went today (Saturday, 4/10/10), to Valley to get a battery for my bike and hopefully talk to Bruce about setting up an appt. I saw his Z out back and thought he was working…literally almost passed out when they told me. Cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. Bruce was the best dad (ALWAYS talked about his kids) and a great mechanic. Valley is planning on having a .ride. for him sometime in May. I plan to go with a bunch of friends. God Bless. Cindy
