To Bruce's memory, every interaction I have ever had with Bruce I was always left with the thought of his high energy. Like his father, for me at least, Bruce and Wayne were bigger than life, their hard charging and confident full speed ahead (figuratively and literally sealed that thought for me. I have many memories, as I was thinking about them writing this, I once went with Bruce, actually skipping my job that weekend to go to Manhattan with Bruce to the drag races in Manhattan. I think this was his first try at drag racing. He had his 68 Chevelle with a modified engine...I still remember the announcer commenting on how great his car looked as he pulled up to the line for his first run, then the same announcer screaming at Bruce warning him to not wipe out the "tree". It was a story I heard many times, actually it was only one of a vast number of stories coming from the Hill family's adventures which I was fortunate enough to share in many of them as a high school(er) and after that made Bruce and the others bigger than life. Rest Bruce, and thanks.
