Gonzalez Family, please accept our deepest most heartfelt condolences on the loss of Bruno. Although at this moment it is difficult to see beyond the grief, may looking back at the wonderful and joyous memories Bruno shared with you and so very many people bring comfort to you.The pain of losing him just reminds us all of the love we each shared for him. Bruno touched the hearts of so many. We were blessed to have had him in our lives. He was always there in the times we needed to laugh or cry. His comical humor and caring ways are what he used to make you smile and laugh. Bruno was a very wonderful and beautiful person. His beautiful smile could always make you feel as special as he was. We will always cherish that special place in our hearts touched by Bruno. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. May the wonderful memories of Bruno be with you always and help to give you strength. To little Bruno, know that your dad was a "wonderful" person and that there are not enough words to describe him. Always know that he loved you very much and that he will be sorely missed by all. May God bless you all. Bruno, it's really hard to take in that you will no longer be here with us,but it gives me some peace to know that you will always be here in spirit. I will always cherish the wonderful memories we were able to share, and the special place in my heart you hold. I thank you for the best gift of all, the gift of being able to be a part of your life. I love you and always will. I will always remember you and that beautiful smile.
With love,

My deepest condolences to the Gonzalez family.

Bruno (Bruski),

You have always been a great friend! You are one that I know of that would literally take the shirt of his back for a friend in need or just because you wanted to show off your pecks!……Brother the times we spent together a couple of summers ago were classic I’ll always cherish them. The night of the AHS homecoming two years ago with Kevin and Shirley will be unforgettable!!! You lit up a room like no other could and made everybody laugh and feel good about life!! You will be immensely missed by all. Go and be with the Lord now and watch over us like the guardian angel you have been in all our lives. I will miss you buddy....

I LOVE YOU MY FRIEND!

Our condolences to Bruno's Family, especially to Lil Bruno. As we prepare to spend our last weekend with Bruno, there is sadness, but we believe he would want us to celebrate his life and reminisce about the good times and the laughter. With Bruno, there was always laughter. (His “canicas” joke was classic!) So to our friend, our fellow Rough Rider, it was short, but fun and memorable. We will celebrate you!

Bruno,
Hard to believe you're not here. You lived and loved like there was no tomorrow. Didn't matter how much time had passed between friends, you could always pick up like nothing had ever changed. We lost touch for awhile, but glad we got to reconnect a little and was always a blessing to just get hello from you. Today the Sun doesn't shine quite as bright and the sky's a different shade of blue. But your memory will live on in your family and friends. God Bless you my friend, until we meet again. My deepest sympathies to the Gonzalez family and to Little Bruno, your dad was good man, one of the best, he'll be watching over you always.

Ray, Ray

Gonzalez Family,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the recent passing of Bruno. I've known Bruno since grade school and he was truly a genuine guy with a heart of gold. His smile was amazing and could light up room in an instant. I pray that all the beautiful memories you have of Bruno bring you peace and comfort during this time of sadness. Although I am not able to be there with you physically, biding him farewell, know that I am with you in spirit. May sweet Bruno's memory be eternal and May God bless him on his journey home. God bless you all, especially Lil' Bruno.

My deepest Condolences to the Gonzalez family! Although I only got to know Bruno for a short time. When I first met Bruno he made me feel like I had known him a life time. He had the best sense of humor ever! It's amazing that even though he is no longer with us he's brought so many people closer together. He was beautiful inside and out. I will try my best to live by his example! He always had a smile on his face. When none of it made any sense and as I was about to lose faith, God whispered in my ear, "Heaven needed the best!" Panthers forever Bruno! You'll always live in our hearts!

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we will begin to remember that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. Peace be with you my friend. I love you.
