    My deepest condolences go out to the Andersen family and our beloved “Uncle Bruce”. He helped teach me how to fish and filet the fish. His kindness and wit brought joy into my life.

    Sincerest sympathy to Claudette, Nathalie, Christophe, & family. Growing up, Bruce was a constant positive, “trickster” in our lives. So many memories! May he rest in power and the light of the love he gave & received. So sorry we are not able to share in your grief in person. You are in our thoughts. Sending prayers & love,
    Jackie, Jon, William, & Benjamin Florczak

    Claudette and family,

    I am so sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing. Mom was glad that he called recently and she talked to both of you. I have so many memories of coming up to Crete to see the Illinois cousins. I pray that you will find comfort in the fond memories you all have of Bruce.
