Memorial for fallen cyclists Gregory & Alexandra Bruehler Tuesday October 6th at 7pm…

October 5, 2009

Please make plans to come out to honor their memory… gregory alexandra photo

 

Greg’s father, Gary Bruehler, has asked the cycling community to please show our support in an email sent to a friend of his on Saturday.  Please make a strong effort to rearrange your schedule to attend this memorial service.  It will be important for all cyclists to extend their support to this family at their time of need. 
 
On a secondary level, it will also be important to show the vast size of the cycling community in San Antonio & surrounding communities in hope that we can improve safety for all cyclists here, and build a bridge to drivers so we can all share the roads safely.
 
The date for the Gregory & Alexandra Bruehler memorial service will be held at the St John Lutheran Church in Boerne, Texas on Tuesday, 6 October at 7PM.st johns lutheran church

    The honor guard idea is so awsome. When my husband was killed march of 08 I felt so alone. I didnt have a memorial here but up in GA…but anyway its sooo awsome that you guys do this. I think it does help and any help at a time like this is good…

      Andrea – I am sorry for your loss. Thanks for your input. It is always difficult to know what a grieving family will want from the community. From what I have heard, Greg & Alex were really wonderful people. I hope their little girl, friends & family see the love & support we’ll be sending…

    Greg & Alex – may you rest in peace in God’s loving arms. It was so good to be able to have been a small part of your service tonight. We all saw how moved the family was. It was an honor for each of us to be there.

    To Gary, Carol & all of the family, thank you so much for letting all of us come & be a part of this. Greg & Alex will live in our hearts every day.
