Edward and I were so saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend. Bruce played golf with Ed and Paul Sullivan and Milt Gray. They had a foursome that was so much fun to watch. Bruce was a loyal and loving friend to both of us. We have so many memories with both Bruce and Joanne and we will miss him terribly. May God Bless Joanne and his family during this very sad time. Affectionately, Pam and Ed Tkacz, Jessup, Md.

We are shocked to hear of the passing of our dear friend Bruce Jackson. Our hearts go out to our beautiful friend Joanne and her lovely family. Still can’t believe it. He was the nicest, sweetest guy ever and we often had the pleasure of seeing him in Sam’s where he never failed to cordially greeted us at the door. We saw him just before we left for Florida, in fact. We treasure the memories of our couples dinners together at great restaurants, and trips to Trump Castle to see shows with Caren and Jim Reich, Jeanne and Carl deVecchis, and Lois and Don Adams . So many wonderful memories of our long talks on the Margate beach. We thank God for that time with him and you, Joanne....and our wonderful friendship. Oh, Joanne, words fail me. May he Rest In Peace in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We love you so much. Know that we are here for you. Please accept our sincere condolences at this very sad time. Our hearts are broken. 😞

Dear Joanne and Family, My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I was so shocked to hear this news. I am in Florida and found out. I just saw Bruce just before I left at Sams. Bruce was a great guy and will be missed. What a super friendly man. God Bless Laura from Dr. Perry’s office.

Bruce, your beautiful voice will be sorely missed from the contribution you made to the Good Shepherd UMC choir family! I know you'll join us in praising the Lord from your newly assigned seat of God's heavenly chorus, yet we'll still miss you. Keeping your family in prayer as they endure the loss of your blessed spirit and wonderful smile. Walking into Sam's Club will be very different, not seeing you at the door with your welcoming greeting.
