I was really sad to hear the news about Bruno's mom's death. My mother too died suddenly in 1980 of a heart attack at the age of 52. I was about Bruno's age also. It was devastating to me, as I know it was to Bruno...but friends and family helped me to get through it....As too I know the same will happen for you. Your fans are also in mourning. My condolences to you and your family Bruno. Love always.

My prayers go out to you, Bruno, and your whole family. I, too, had a brain aneurysm when I was 29 years old. The Lord needed an angel and he chose your Mom. Keep the faith, Bruno, and just remember, there are a lot of people out there that love you. Stay you!
