Firstly, from Bruce's wife Sharon, we deeply appreciate the support sent in by family and friends. We know the prayers and well wishes reach Bruce, and they resonate in our hearts too. Often times we make fun of technology, but in this case, this landing page will allow us to communicate with all of you and share Bruce's progress.
It was Sunday pizza night at Sharon and Bruce's house, and enjoyed visits by family members. They laughed together, swapped stories, and talked about their upcoming plans. Unbeknownst to them, everything was going to change that night.
Monday morning, around 2am Bruce nudged his beloved wife, Sharon, awoke from her slumber. He spoke the words no loved one wants to hear, "I think I am having a stroke." The next few hours were a whirlwind of activity. Bruce's fellow firemen from Glenville Hill Fire Department rushed to the scene. They gathered around and quickly brought him to Ellis Hospital. He had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke.
Leading up to October 21st, 2019 Bruce was walking around confidently after undergoing his second knee replacement on the first of the month. His drive to excel in physical therapy fast tracked his recovery. Sharon and Bruce have been a team since day one. The next few months will be, as they say, "a marathon, not a sprint" but Bruce has always enjoyed work and Sharon has always been his rock.
