Roger Brunelle

Roger and seven brothers

Roger Brunelle (61) is the 2nd oldest of the 8 Brunelle brothers.  Roger retired from the Postal Service Nov 30, 2005 at age 62 years and 8 months after exactly 20 years of service to you and our mail system.  I have my library of 2300 books to read, which are mostly about religious subjects, during my retirement.  I have read 10 books since I retired.

My immediate younger brother, Vernon Bruce (62), died Aug 16, 2006 of pancreatic cancer at age 62 and 2 months.

My one older brother, Robert (59), died Feb 13, 2011 of Alzheimer’s at age 69 and 2 months.

Roger with improved eyesight!

July14, 2010 extreme cataracts forced me to replace my natural eye lens with functional TECNIS multifocal lens.  I no longer need to wear glasses and I can see 20/30 from my worst eye.  I am very comforted in being able to see well.

I watch way too much TV — mostly educational programs, the big four tennis tournaments and religious programming striving to explain ETERNITY — which I wish to each of my classmates — ENJOY the very best possible ETERNITY.

Here’s some great wisdom from the web:
