Bruce was my cousin

I was only 11 years old then Bruce died but I can picture it like it was yesterday. I remember the family members gathered around and Bruce's high school girlfriend. Bruce's father Harry was in the Marine's on Tarawa in WWII. Now the two heroes rest next to each other along with Harry's wife and Bruce's mother Marie, among their peers.

Never Forget You My Young HS Friend

Bruce, I think of you often and have visited you each time I pass through Arlington area. I remember you and Nancy as if it were yesterday - you in your Corvair. I am still saddened when I think of that time in our lives and in your loss. You were my friend when I moved to Fairfield and knew no one. I am always mindful of you - then and still to this day. Sempre Fidelis.

Lunch in cafeteria your senior year in high school

You liked my friend, Nancy, and we had lunch with you many times. I remember your plans to leave for Vietnam, and later the announcement over the loudspeaker that you had been KIA. I was in Music, and Nancy was sitting in front of me. She ran out of the room, and I still regret not running after her. I think of your loss often, felt that she was wise to care for you, and wish you two had been given a chance to decide on your own whether you'd build a life together. You are not forgotten!

Always Remembered

Bruce was a good friend of mine in high school; we were in the same home room. We shared a lot of laughs and good times. He was crazy about Chevy Convairs, girls, ice cream sandwiches, not necessarily in that order. I'm sorry that I lost track of him after graduation. I think of him from time to time especially on Memorial Day. I am honored to have known him. RIP.
