Good press for Honiton’s young people.

Following the Midweek Herald’s coverage of the tragic death of Bruno Fernandes, I felt compelled to write to say how proud I am of all his friends who attended his funeral on Thursday.

Young people seem to attract a lot of bad press these days, but Bruno’s friends all dressed very smartly, many carrying a white rose in his memory, and they supported and comforted each other.

It will take a long, long time for Bruno’s friends and family to come to terms with this, but, in time, you will remember Bruno will a smile, instead of tears, and his spirit will live on in everyone’s memory.

If you take anything from this experience, just remember that we only get one shot at this life - it is so important to study hard and take every opportunity that comes your way.

You should all feel very proud of yourselves.

Bruno was very lucky to share your friendship - as we all were to share our lives with such a charming young man whose life was cut short far too soon.
