  1. From as long as I can remember, Brucie Mac was the closest of close friends of our whole family as he was for hundreds of others. He was full of smiles, gentleness and integrity. When as a young child, I crashed my bicycle badly on the road in front of the McDiarmid’s house. Brucie was a rescuer, a hero and a world of comfort to a little kid. I and my family mourn with the Maccies today, having nothing but warm and wonderful memories and love in our hearts as we wish Brucie the same gentle peace, comfort and a world of smiles he showed me and everyone else in life. Rest in Peace Brucie Mac. Damien & the Kerr Family – Perth
