Today the prairie ocean and beyond lost a good friend. Now, you may not have known him by name or in person, but still I think you know him because just like many of you he was a man of nature... a man of water.
His name was John Bruno of Tishomingo. For a good number of years, John helped lead the fight to first save, and then manage the resources of the Arbuckle-Simpson aquifer. John approached the issue in a quieter, more intelligent way, and that seem to be his trademark... at least to me.
In passing, John asked that "those wishing to pay respects should, at their convenience, go to a river, creek or lake and observe 15 minutes of silence while marveling in mother nature."
I can not think of a more admirable way in the paying of respects. Next time you are on the water please take the time to remember a man who spoke for the things, which couldn't speak on their own.
John also asked for the support of TREES in lieu of flowers.
