I only met Brice once when he came to Ottawa to visit his aunt Adrien and uncle Brice. He brought a good camera; we went to a baseball game and we walked the sights of central Ottawa. He took many very good pictures, one of which was published. He had great talent. It is a shock to hear of his untimely death. My condolences to Mary Jo and his family.

Dear sweet Bryce, I am so sorry you had a life full of bumps along the way.
You, in spite of it, opened your arms and heart to love and compassion, especially for those in need and those who could not stand up for themselves.
I was proud of the young man you were, and even prouder of the man you had become! Knowing you are no longer here fighting the "good fight" makes me sad for the world. I love you sweetheart.
Oh brice you were such a passionate soul about everyone and everything you cared about. You always had your arms out for such a warm hug. I will never forget you and the memories of 20+ yrs. My deepest sympathy to all your friends and family.— Dorothy Chapman, July 6, 2023
