    That was a beautiful article, thank you.

    Such a tragedy, and the loss of a great Disney talent much too early.

    Oh, that's awful news. He was far too young.

    I'm looking forward to getting his last work, his book on Wally Boag.

    Very sad news.

    Wanda Woman, I've been told that the Wally Boag book is going to be awesome. Evidently Bruce turned it around from a compilation of Wally's stories to a much more polished book with pictures and input from people who worked with Wally. Bruce definitely had the magic touch when it came to telling a great story.

    I didn't know him personally, but met him a few times through David Mumford. When David passed away, I'll never forget Bruce's presentation during the memorial service. It was so funny he had all of us practically rolling in the aisles. He was able to change the whole tone of the service in that short, funny eulogy. What a gift he had. He will definitely be missed among us fellow Disneylanders.

    This is truly sad news. As an Ex-Cast Member, I was lucky enough to meet him, and he was an very freindly man. He was great! I was very shocked by this news. Again, so sad. He will be missed by many.

    Anyone planning on going to the memorial at Forest Lawn Monday?

    The LA Times: A memorial service is scheduled for Monday November 12th at 2:00 pm at Forest Lawn - Glendale in the Church of the Recessional (1712 S. Glendale Ave. Glendale, CA 91205)

    I understand that all are welcome. It would be nice to show our support for all that Bruce has done.
