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!
