Bruno Update

By -

I wanted to interrupt your market day with a brief update on Bruno, whom is well known to old timers here. He has been silent for weeks, and I’ve been trying to figure out if he’s OK or not. During my early morning dog walk, I called his number (I steadfastly avoid intruding on personal lives, so I had not done this until now). After many rings, his girlfriend answered, and we spoke for a while.

The good news is that he’s still with us. The bad news is that he’s in pretty serious shape. He’s on a ventilator in the hospital. He’s able to communicate, so I asked her to tell him that we’ve been thinking about him and worrying about him. She was very moved by this, and I’m sure the collective sentiments of those here will cheer his spirits. I just wanted you to know.
