    Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your dad. I remember going to your mom and dad’s hours with my parents, Jane and Charlie Crowley when I was a teenager. They were a wonderful couple and always had me laughing during my visits. I know my dad really valued and trusted your dad’s advice and loved your mom’s cooking. I will always remember them with great fondness.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have fond memories of watching my father and Bruce talk, joke, laugh and enjoy the world and their shared interests. Bruce was a close friend and confidant of my father and I learned a bit about life from him. I have vivid memories of boating with him out of Branford Ct. when I was a child and was delighted to have sailed with him out of Newport RI on the America’s Cup boat Weatherly. He was an important influence in our family and in the lives of those he knew. He will be missed.
