I was reading Sergeant Cameron Grysen's (HPD) story from the Devotional, "Cops on the Street". In the beginning of his short story, he mentioned Bruno, but he didn't write before the end if he made it or not. Curious, I came here, hoping I wouldn't find his name... When I found this and read Ms. Sue's recent entries... It made me think what Sgt. Grysen said at the very end of that devotional, "They say that time heals, but it doesn't - only Jesus can heal." I hope all of you - Bruno's friends and family, find some peace and comfort knowing that Bruno will never be forgotten and will always be honored and remembered for the sacrifice he made.
