Sorry for your loss. Prayers from my family to your family ,God bless
Words can not begin to express how much Bruce meant to me both during the time I served as Rector of St. Philip in the Fields and later as I moved into a new call and eventually retirement. Bruce was more than a Rector’s Warden, he was a good friend and a trusted colleague – a fellow traveler along the Way. His depth of Spirituality was immeasurable as was his desire to serve both God and neighbor. I know how much family meant to him and I know how much you will all miss him. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. He will be missed!
Mr Ferguson was a cherished friend of our family. He was a strong pillar yet warm, approachable and witty. My childhood would have been much different without his presence. We all mourn the loss of such a special person yet rejoice that he is in a place where his aging body won’t hold him back. Love to you all!
Bruce was my friend for over 65 years. He was a good human being, a good husband, a good father and a great friend. Plus we shared a love for singing and arguing politics.
