I only knew Ed because of Scott. But I understand his grief as I have lost family to that sickness and it sucks. I haven't experienced your loss yet Donnie but do know it is surreal to you and pray for the coming days, weeks, months that with every tear you shed for you and Ed, it will be out numbered by good time memories more and more.

I worked with Bruce for many years and found my interactions to be a wonderful gift. Ed stood up for what he believed, gave it to you straight, and always did the right thing. He also stood for more than most and I will miss him greatly. Donnie, I am sorry for your loss and offer my sincerest condolences to you and all of Ed's loved ones.

Donnie: I am so very sorry. I don't know if you remember but many years ago, you and Bruce were at my house, as Bruce was one of the people who was so very supportive and good to me during my divorce. He always reminded me of God's love and, as you are well aware, could add levity whenever it was needed. There are so many of us here at Mars who have heavy hearts hearing the news. Bruce was an AMAZING human being, one of the nicest, most caring people someone could ever meet. I am honored to have crossed paths with him and was so lucky to call him a friend. Each of us has our unique journey and along the way there are people who come in and out of our lives...some of them leave a lasting impression. Bruce was one of those people. Take good care of yourself Donnie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Cris

Donnie - Heartbroken to learn of Bruce's passing. He was such a bright light. I remember fondly the time you spent with us in Dubai just a few years ago. Bless you and your family; know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
