Condolence From: Jack Byers III
Condolence: I did not know Bruce but I am a passionate trapper, ginseng man, gardener and all around lover of nature. I met Ed Phetteplace some years ago at a Herkimer Trappers convention and was hoping to meet Bruce this year and buy ginseng seed and rootlets this Fall. Now I find out he is gone and I wish I had the right words to help comfort his loved ones.
I am finding he is a man of the Lord so you must know he is in the perfect Ginseng patch forever with his kind. You will all be with him forever - no suffering, unthinkable sadness - only complete happiness in a perfect place.
I will have to stay true so I can finally meet you once and for all Bruce.
Jack B. Byers III,

Condolence: As a lifelong friend I'll miss Bruce's honesty, frankness, and love of country. The Class of 1971 will sorely miss his humor and love of life. Bruce was always talking about "Real Fur", not "Faux Fur".
