Bruce always told us that the funeral service was just a Band-Aid on the grief, and that everything else we do is what helps the family,” Kainz said. “I was part of the crisis teams that Bruce would take into the schools (to address a tragedy) and it was one of the most difficult things we did, yet it was the most rewarding.”
