    I can remember when you were born and how much fun I had dressing you up and doing what you loved best banging pots and pans together on the kitchen floor. We lost touch for way to long and came back together when we lost our grandfather. I love you and will miss you .. Until we meet again love you always Prima.

    Deepest condolences and prayers. I knew him best as a kid, a bit of a wild child, smart funny. Glad I got to see the Man he became and the life he had. RIP little Brother

    Bruno was one of my former students and one of our son’s friends .Our family is truly regrets his passing. He was recently in Murfreesboro and happened to see another one of his former teachers who was limping badly. He asked her if he could help her even before he realized who she was. When she told him she was scheduled for surgery, he asked her if he could pray for her which she gladly accepted. This just shows that Bruno lived his religion and shared it with others.

  • Charles Fulton Posted March 30, 2023 10:09 AM

    Bruno was my brother. He helped me with seeing the love of Christ. I look forward to the day when I can see him again. I will stay the course until then.

  • Edith Reyes Posted March 30, 2023 10:55 AM

    Awesome man! Kind, compassionate, and always willing to help someone. He felt the pain or sadness of others and was willing to step in the gap to help them with anything he could or just a prayer and a hug. I will miss him here on earth…but there is coming a reunion day and we will meet again!

  • Barry McBroom Posted March 30, 2023 5:19 PM

    Bruno always had a word of encouragement for me when I was down. I am blessed to have gotten close in fellowship with him and will miss his awesome smile and sense of humor. I m in prayer for his family and friends

  • Barbara Greenlees Posted March 31, 2023 8:44 PM

    As my husband said it., Bruno was a good man all the around. We met Bruno when he moved us to Arkansas from colorado and back again to colorado. He was my nephews friend and Gods light always shined right through him. He stood by faith no matter what. Bruno will miss you until we see each other again in heaven….

  • Charlotte L McCauley Posted April 1, 2023 12:26 AM

    I knew Bruno when he was in high school and I worked for the county. He was always special to me and I tried to help him. So glad I got to know him as an adult and how he changed to be a man of God. He had a wonderful smile and was so caring and helpful to everyone. Rest in peace my friend. To his family, may God carry you in his arms and give you peace and understanding.
