|Let the memory of Bryce be with us forever|
"Hey Papa, It's been four years since you've left this world and yet it feels like yesterday. A lot has changed in these four years without you. I'm a teenager now, almost old enough to start driving. I go to Delphian which you would have loved and I have tons of amazing friends. I still love to dance and perform and my hair is as long as ever. I'm different from when I was ten years old but still the same. I may a little sarcastic but just as weird as ever. I conquered MFCs, struggle with math, am becoming responsible while still finding time to read "Gone With the Wind". I am an SRD comp and am researching internships. I have a best friend and a boyfriend. I love acting and the stars, the color burgundy and Broadway and tea and "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card. I remember you encouraging me and "reprimanding me". I remember watching football games and painting football shaped pottery. I remember corned beef and cabbage and chocolate chip pancake eating contests. I remember holding on to you as you dived into the pool. I was scared as hell but I loved it. I remember going to the park and looking at the stars. I remember you showing me deer outside my bedroom window. I remember waking up early so I could watch the news with you before you went to work. I remember Christmases and molasses chips and karaoke. I remember you urging me to become a black belt and giving me roses after my dance recitals. I remember country music and going to the Y, so exited to be at the gym where you worked. I remember making my mom wash my blue cheerleading uniform for the special occasion. I remember how sad you looked the one time you actually had to punish me.I remember beautiful night swimming and the most magical Christmas Eves. I remember you. I remember when you got sick. I remember Dad and Grandma going to the hospital a lot. I remember finding out what Leukemia is. I remember never really knowing how sick you were. I remember always believing you would get better. The last time I remember seeing you was Christmas. I remember being told Marlene was bringing you home and being excited because I thought you were better. I remember finding out you had passed away. I remember sobbing. I remember taking off the the next week of school and spending it with family. I remember writing you a letter and putting it on our Christmas tree the first time you weren't there. I Remember being happy when I realized you weren't in pain anymore. Everyone coped with your loss in different ways and I took it hard. I miss you but for the most part I've let go. I have so many memories of a sparkly eyed little girl and her devoted Papa. I will remember them forever. I am still the little girl with a blue balloon, standing in the middle of a crowd but this time you won't come back. I will continue to live my life and grow into a woman you would be proud of. Me and the rest of the family will miss you forever. Love Always, Your lil' munchkin and granddaughter, Meg."

"I have nothing but found memories of Bryce starting back at Buena High and our metal shop class with Mr. Parrish and later (after brief stop in Viet-Nam) we were co-workers at 3M and Imation. He was a hard worker and took his job seriously, but he always had time to have fun with a joke and laugh. We shared many thoughts and ideas working graveyards together for several years. My favorite photo o"
"Bryce was one great person. I never saw him upset with anyone, he always had a story and good words for all. I had the pleasure to have worked with him in Camarillo as a supplier and it was a wonderful experience. We will all miss him and our thoughts go out to his family."
"Went to school with Bryce and his brother.Hung out at there house on Hunter St. Mom would make us sandwiches. Man, seems like yesterday. R.I.P."
"I will forever treasure the many conversations, the many jokes, the pictures that Bryce chose to share with me over the years. We started out as phone buddies; he being my customer while he was at 3M/Imation in Camarillo. And this friendship continued on after his move to FL. He loved his family very much and I know there is a hole in your hearts . . .he was a wonderful guy!!"

Hold on to them as they are precious. Great person"

"I had the pleasure of working with Bryce for 3 years back in the late 90s. He was always such a pleasure to work with and we had a lot of good laughs. He was a great guy who will be missed by everyone who knew him. I wish I would have had a chance to continue getting to know him after I moved states. My thoughts are with your family."
"Bryce, I am truly honored to have had you as friend. You were without a doubt, my "best friend".

"Bryce was a good friend we will miss him & think of him often.
I enjoyed working with him."
"have a cold 1 4 me bryce . never could drink more beers then you could. luv you pal."
"Bryce was 21 and so was I. Right from the start I knew this was a great guy. It would be 22 years later before we actually worked together. And he was that same guy I had always known he was. Smart, funny, hard working, competent, generous, unpretentious, laid back, ready to laugh at any moment. The sly smile as he'd look away and back at you. I will miss his bawdy emails. Sweet Bryce"
