Class of 1961 Remembrance 
Michael Bruey

My uncle was a wonderful man with a lot of love to give and share. We lovingly called him “The Holiday Uncle” because we’d only hear or see him on holidays but the time he spent with you he made you feel extra special. His laughter & friendship will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

I will get with my mom & aunt and see if there is anything else they would like to have posted.
