I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Bruno. When I first met him years ago, I thought, what a very distinguished gentleman he is. I told him, if I ever have a son, I am going to name him Bruno. He chuckled and said, "oh, that's an "old world" name and there's not too many of us around". Well, on August 29, 2007, my son was born. Proudly we named him...BRUNO Duke Fox. If he grows to be half the man Mr. Tondello was, then he will be quite a man himself. To you Opal and family...God Bless!
