By granting one of her late lover Bryan Randall’s last requests, Sandra Bullock has paid tribute to him.
On what would have been Randall’s 58th birthday, the actress scattered his ashes along the Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, according to a post on Instagram by her sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado.
Bullock-Prado wrote, “Happy Birthday, Bry. Sandy brought you to the river, just as she promised,” and included a little film of the snow-covered riverside lit up by the winter sun.
In addition to Randall’s older daughter from a previous relationship, Bullock and Randall are parents to three children: Bullock’s 13-year-old son Louis and his 11-year-old.
After battling ALS for three years, Sandra Bullock’s longtime partner and photographer, Bryan Randall, died on August 5 at the age of 57.
After a three-year battle with ALS, a neurological disease for which there is no known treatment, photographer Bryan Randall passed away peacefully on August 5.

They conveyed their sincere gratitude to the committed physicians and altruistic nurses who helped them during Bryan’s sickness, devoting their own family time to his treatment.
They expressed their heartbreaking grief and asked for privacy to grieve, realizing how tough it was to say goodbye to Bryan.
Bullock’s sister, Gesine, expressed her condolences for Bryan’s passing while highlighting Sandra’s superb care for him throughout his quiet ALS fight.

While keeping a private life together, Sandra Bullock and Bryan Randall recognized their love in public. In a late 2021 Red Table Talk speech, Bullock called Randall a “saint” and mentioned their close bond.
