My condolences to the family for their loss. I was friends with Bev at Helix High & we saw one another occasionally at SDSU. I last connected with her prior to her move to Oakhurst. I've been in the wilderness most of this summer and just read about her passing tonight. May peace be with you my old friend. Thanks for the memories and the laughs. John

I wanted to send my deepest condolences to the family . It is never easy losing a love one . I wanted to share some comforting scripture from the Bible.please notice what it says in ( John 5:28 ) it says : do not be amazed at this for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection of life. What a beautiful promise , he will swallow up death forever according to ( Isaiah 25:8) please be assured that Jehovah God ( psalms 83:18) he never intended for us to suffer and die , his purpose has always been to live forever ( psalms 37: 10,11 notice his words in ( Isaiah 55:11) it say: my word that goes out of my mouth will be , it will not come back to me without results but it will certainly accomplish whatever is my delight. I hope these Bible truths give you hope and peace . Thank you

Saddened by this news! I was fortunate enough to be one of her students during her years of teaching. Mrs. Bruce, as I knew her, was so vibrantly full of life! Greatly missed. Prayers for her family!

We had a lot of fun traveling from here to there and back again. Our Washington DC and New York City trip was so much fun and getting rained on in Yankee Stadium was a hoot. You were a great friend to me and I will miss you. Love you.
