Bugger!  That's so sad ... 41!  RIP
Everyone I come across in cages they bought
they think of me and my wandering
but I'm never what they thought
got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts
I'm alive...

Hey Guys and Dolls

Thank you so much for all the best wishes , I have passed them onto Ingrid and Marky

For those that knew Bruce would know he was a real Mr Nice Guy.

He was a Hard worker and did so much overtime 2 bring home extra cash for the Family

He was an amazing House Keeper 2 , cooking and ironing was his forte.

He loved this Forum and his KLR.

He gave up smoking about 4 months ago and was finally getting into shape. He never drank (ever)

He started Jogging in the complex about a month ago and often told me how he felt he could go a little further.

He Died about 800 m from his house . He had a massive heart attack. His son was with him , Ingrid was there within minutes.

I got there about 15 mins after it happened , we waited ages (90mins) for the Cops to come and confirm it was natural death so they could take him away.

SO not fair , he was a Good person. A great Father and a Very loving Hubby

I miss him KAK Baie already

Thanks for your support
