Blogging Buddy Gone

Good lord, this looks more like a mug shot then Bruce of Canuk Attitude, but I wanted a pic that showed his long hair.  When I first met Bruce in cyber (and sadly, never in this realm), he also had a beard and looked like a hippie dude.  He might fire me for calling him a a dude rather then a sister, and he did love me calling him “Brucie”.

Bruce passed away the other day.   Pits.  Double pits.  My mother took her life also and I know the effect it has on family and friends….it’s a long lasting scar that rips open from time to time and just never seems to go away completely.  At the same time I also know the effects of depression….the pain and anguish, and how opting out of life seems like the only solution.  I’m sure he’s found peace at last.

Whether Brucie would believe it or not, he was making a contribution to the world and Canada with his blog.  Canuk Attitude.  He was meticulous with his presentation, thoughtfullness and wry humour…his intelligence and ability to read between the lines was uncanny.  Yet he was a humble man and willing to help out us newbies as we came along.

Love and Miss ya Brucie-Darling!

    hi scout…nice. Lordy. I had no idea Bruce was such a hippy. He looks like member of one of those great 70s bands. 🙂
    He was a character, he was funny and passionate, he was always very encouraging to newbies as you say, and that’s how we have to to remember him. But of course that only makes his
    untimely death even sadder…

    Hi Scout
    I am shocked stupid by this… I still just can’t believe it. Why. Why.
    Oh, Brucie…

    he is still changing how we think, very fine. I love the photo.

    Beijing made some good points in a comment section at ACR concerning the impact Bruce’s last ride is having on so many who have never met him. About Net family, the realness of virtual bonds, about, well, she said it better.

    The guy left us with a hell of a lot and seeds of more to come.

    Suicide is one of those things where you just cannot see your own value to the world. You think that everyone would be better off were you out of the picture. I lost a fiance to suicide 10 years ago and I swear it was the only selfish act he performed in his life. And so it seems for this man.

    Another loss Canada can ill afford, a pity.
