|Bruce speaking out against |
months before his death
Bruce had a gift, a charism if you will, when it came to social connections. He knew everyone in Frankfort, from the homeless to the Governor, knew their lives, their tragedies and triumphs and related to everyone there with a equanimity which belies the true meaning of the word compassion.
His experiences with the Roman Church caused him to leave their fold, yet I would argue in terms that I normally would reserve for Michael Judge and George Romero that his deeds, words and motivations were more catholic than those being pronounced today by the 'faithful' in that community. His wit, his humour and his friendship will be sorely missed.
Until we meet again, Bruce, my our loving Father hold you in Her arms.
