So sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know Bruce while he was receiving therapy services at Brookline. He was always ready for therapy and always willing to try anything that was asked of him. He definitely was not a quitter and worked hard to keep moving and living independently. Also, a heartfelt thank you to all who made Bruce’s wish of being able to return to his home a reality.
