Wow. This story of the family of a missing man having a memorial service and declaring him legally dead is just weird.
I don’t blame the family for wanting to move on because it sounds like they’re pretty sure he’s gone, and it has been 7 years, but I just keep coming back to what if he isn’t? Wouldn’t it be weird to walk into somewhere and get told “Um, sir? You’re supposed to be dead.” And I know that sort of thing has happened before.
I hope some day the family of Willy Bruder get some answers. What a horrible way to lose someone.
