    My heart goes out to you and your families at this difficult time.

  11. What can I say! It has been my blessing in life to have shared, with my father and mother, at least a moment with everyone of Bruno’s brothers and sister. The experiences have helped to shape my life. They were, to me, a generation that I have always held as the greatest teaching generation. I am saddened for the tragedy of Bruno’s passing but I am sure that with the end of his family legacy the next generation will become stronger in tradition and carry on. My condolences to all of you. Thank you for letting me share in Bruno’s life and in your lives as a friend. GOD bless all of you.

  12. My thoughts go out to Bruno an his family. He was a wonderful person

    Dear Pacific Family, we were very sad to learn of Bruno’s death. Maybe he spoke of me, I am a relative of the family that owned the home before Bruno bought it. I am related to the Creusot family from France. The last Creusot to live there was Fred & Imma Creusot. Fred’s father, Alexander, was my great Uncle. I live in Tennessee and we visited Bruno. He gave me the letter written many many years ago. I would like to hear from Ricky. Please write me at email:
    jpaul8141@gmail.com or call at 901-497-7116. I have a few facts about the Creusot family and the Bruno’s home. Marie-Jo Hammond
