    I am his oldest son. I just wanted to tell him how much I miss him and I am praying everyday that he is still out there somewhere on a beach or something. I love you DAD and know you are safe in GODS hands and hope you are proud of me for the father I am to my two boys. I wish we could’ve patched things up more and had a better relationship. I miss you and always have Loved you.I will be there for mom as much as I can. Hope you’re proud of me. Bruce Jr
