    Sincere sympathy to the entire Meyer family. I know Bruce had not been well, but it’s always hard to let go the final time. Unfortunately we will be out of town, so I can’t come personally, but I will rely on Patty to kiss everyone for me and give hugs in here entire family. You are all so special to me. Patty, also hug Barb and say the right words in my place, and even give Mark a kiss from old TC. Tell stories and cherish his memory because you’ve had great family times. XOXO

Tim will see you on Friday. Unfortunately, I will be in New Orleans. My thoughts will be with you, your family, and the community of which Bruce played a huge part. Deanna

    Bruce was my dentist for more years than I care to admit. He saved my upper teeth by using topical fluoride. It was a new procedure then. I really missed him when he retired in 2001. I loved hearing him talk about his muzzle loading guns. Only trouble was he would do that when I had my mouth full of dental equipment and couldn’t reply. My condolences to the family.

    Barb & Family,
    I was out of town when I received the sad news about Bruce’s passing. It was impossible for me to be there and to honor his memory. I met Barb and Bruce when I open my dental practice in Monticello in 1969 and we have remained friends since that time. Bruce had a brilliant mind and he was well respected by his colleagues in the dental community. The folks in Flora were blessed when Bruce and Barb moved there. I was blessed to have him as a friend.
    “O Herr, gib ihm die ewige Ruhe.” (O God give him eternal rest).
