    Remembering my dear classmate from the Class of 1973. Bruce was the nicest, coolest and best dress guy in our classroom. Everyone loved Bruce! Our hearts are filled with tears to know of your passing at this hour. We remember several of us trying to sneak in "Deaver's Grill" to get hot dogs one day and your mom said, she was going to get all of us later! You were the "student pet" for grades 1-7! Mrs. Neal always gave you a rough time about being quiet and sitting down in class. Soldier, may you rest now and we will always remember the great times at Garner Consolidated School. Love to your family and prayers at this hour. Submitted by Ms. Mel Davis Eaton & The Class of 1973. Sending love from Mrs. Emma Jean Davis and family.
