My condolences to Bruce's family. I worked for Bruce in the Service Dept. at Sears while I was in college. He was a great boss and a good man to work for. Over the years it was always good to see him when I would stop at the market for a hoagie. Rest in peace.

With condolences to the Johnson family. God can give you peace and strength, and help you to feel calm. Philippians 4:6, 7. Do not conclude that God has forsaken you. God cares about you. First Peter chapter five, verse 7.
