Bruce Langfeld RIP

Just found out about this a couple of hours ago and I’ve been on the phone about it since then. I haven’t seen Bruce in years. I didn’t know him well, but I knew him through old Tower South Street co-workers, old Welcomat (pre-PW), and music scene friends. He was very smart, talented, with a dry wit on the outside and a sweet core in the inside. I’m very sorry to see him go, especially since the obit says that he was struggling with loneliness and depression. When people leave this Earth not understanding they were truly loved, it’s a very sad thing. My heart goes out to his biological and musical family.

UPDATE: Since the toxicology reports are still coming in, it’s best not to jump to conclusions of suicide. If he was taking a lot of meds for depression, there’s a chance that side effects from a certain combination of meds could have been lethal. The second-to-last line was coming from a person living with depression, when you really don’t feel like you’re worth a damn no matter how many people around you show their love and support. Anyway, I hope this clarifies things.

    that is awesome, (in a good way)-you have a big heart. I am forwarding this on….would like to add more, but I can’t right now. but I am very thankful that there are people like you who seem to be able to say and do the right things. and I was glad to hear your voice. yet another glaring reminder to take nothing for granted.
    on a positive and not wholly unrelated note—sugartown is looking swell! sorry I missed friday.
