Our prayers are with you, Sharon, Tim and Aaron. I had the privilege of knowing Bruce for many years, and working alongside him at the Center for Developmental Services for the last 5+ years. I have enjoyed wonderful fellowship with him and observed how Bruce's quiet spirit, consistent testimony and firm faith in God's plan for his life have impacted many lives for good and for God's glory. It has been a wonderful relationship that we look forward to renewing around the Throne one day.

My heart is so heavy at this news, I was neighbors with the Higgs many years ago and couldn’t ask for nicer ones. Bruce was such a kind, good man and a wonderful example of a husband and father. We all moved on from the apartment complex we lived in, but every now and then we would run into each other and it was so good to connect again. Sharon, Timothy and Aaron - I’m praying for you as you grieve your loss and celebrate your loved one.

Mrs. Higgs, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's passing. But I'm so glad that you know you will see him again. I know this will be a difficult time adjusting to life without him, but I trust God will encourage your heart and give you the strength you need to take it day by day.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Sharon, though I didn't really know your husband, I do know you and your boys and wanted to say I am praying for you & your family. Be assured the Lord is with you now in a very special way and will never leave you. He is faithful, kind, and will give you the strength, courage, & will to continue on with His plan for your life. I am living proof of that! Rest in Him.

Remembering you always Bruce, what a sweet man you always were. Always had a smile and a joke ready, you will be missed. My prayers are with Bruce's entire family.

Sharon, Tim, and Aaron, my hearts breaks for your family. Bruce was one of those remarkable people who thought would be with us forever. We are still getting calls for Bruce to move this picture or tighten the swing rods, as there are a few who we missed on the email. He literally helped every staff member at some point here at CDS, whether to fix their office chair, cabinet, or desk. Beyond the physical improvements to the building, Bruce's smile and moral character uplifted our spirits. He was genuine and a kind soul. I love his obituary! God blessed us with him for 71 years on this Earth. Now he's needed in heaven. We love all of you!
