    My memory to my Uncle Fred is spending time with the family. My memories are from a very young age. I treasure those memories. My father, Francis Brunette,spending quality time with his brothers Uncle Fred, Uncle Henry and Uncle Renee. Once you got them together is was a non-stop celebration. Jokes,prankes and just grown up men acting like us kids. Memories of family sharing time and having fun. We all miss those days and will cherish them to our hearts!

    Uncle Fred is in good hands, he is greeted by people who love him and have missed him as much as we all will.

    God Bless!

    Thank You Uncle Fred for child memories and say Hi to Uncle Henry and Renee for me.

    Always a place in my heart!
    Your Niece!!!!!
