    I first met Bruce when we were around 13 years old and we quickly became best friends. We shared life experiences nearly daily for many years. After returning home from Vietnam, both changed forever from our military experiences, we led separate lives while maintaining an unbroken bond of friendship.

    I have come to realize, that there are no mistakes in life. Every experience we have is exactly the right experience at exactly the right time for our development. Whether the experiences are condisered good or bad isn’t important as both will have equal, lasting impact on us.

    Few people have had a greater impact on my life than Bruce Wadenius. Dick Beausang once stated “You take your people with you wherever you go”. Bruce will always be one of my people and I will always be grateful for our friendship. Rest well my brother and I’ll catch you on the flip side.
