Slain Riverside Police Officer Ryan Bonaminio

Postby Ellen » Tue Nov 16, 2010 4:00 pm

I mourn the loss of Riverside Officer Ryan Bonaminio who was murdered while on duty Nov 7. His memorial was today. Officer Bonaminio is a hero who served both his country in Iraq and in our hometown of Riverside. I am keeping his family and friends in my thoughts and prayers.

I will wear a US flag bandana on my hike this weekend in his honor.

From the heart,
Ellen

A bit more of the senseless death of Officer Ryan Bonaminio.

I know the parents -- the nicest folks ever. Joe (the dad) was in my cardiac fitness program over 25 years ago. He started running and we ran some 5 K's together while I was training for the Ironman triathlon in Hawaii. Joe is also a Vietnam Vet. Gerry (the mom) was my mom's and my banker. She really helped my mom with bank matters when my dad died in 2001. I will wear an American flag bandana on my PCT hike to honor Officer Ryan Bonaminio.

From the heart,
Ellen
