Loss of Loved One Poem

Now that I am gone,
remember me with smiles and laughter.
And if you need to cry,
cry with your brother or sister
who walks in grief beside you.
And when you need me,
put your arms around anyone
and give to them what you need to give to me.
There are so many who need so much.
I want to leave you something --
something much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known
or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your heart
as well as in your mind.
You can love me most
by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
by embracing them and living in their love.
Love does not die, people do.
So, when all that's left of me is love,
give me away as best you can.

Bruce and I were one hell of a team in the service department for US Cellular. This is a terrible loss.

I group up in Canton across the street from the Barnes family. Everyone knew I called him my little brother and his parents my adoptive parents. My thoughts are with the family and I’ll have beer for you today. I can hear that laugh of his. Miss you buddy

Brenda Rose June 24, 2022

Oh Bruce I don't even know what to say. We all are shocked and sadden at your death. We all grew up together in this small town. We grew up in the best of times, and figured out the world together. Now your just gone, and we're all left grasping to get our breath from this tremendous loss. You may be gone, but you'll never be forgotten. Your memories stories, and friendships we all carry in our hearts.Those will keep your memory alive. May you Rest In Peace Bruce.Our Eastview,Ingersoll, and CHS friend and classmate. "WE ARE THE CLASS of 87"
