We miss our friend Bruce Martin.  He was one of Jeff's best friends (along with Frank Brecka), the best

man at our wedding in 1967, and was always there for Jeff & I no matter what!  We shared dinners,

together, vacations ( Pocono's, The Jersey Shore, Out Banks (along with the Brecka's and Bruces

sister Bonnie & her husband Jim).  We sang "God Bless America" at sunset on our boat on the

Barnegate Bay.

Pat asked Jeff to speak at Bruce's funeral.  It was his honor.

He did have his faults.  Yes, especially trying to cheat at cards, but we had SOOO many laughs to

gether!  The kind where your stomach hurts and tears are streaming down your cheeks.  Bruce

did that all the time.

We miss those times, but he is in a better place  So here's to you BRUCE!
