The picture of Bruce wearing his # 3 hat brought the song by Diamond Rio to mind "One More Day, One More Time". To meet at the mound or head to Jonsie's one more time would make this feeling go away, like the songs says it leaves me wishing for one more day. God blessed us with the best of times and He will see us all through these times. 
Love and prayers
