I never got to see this man, but still delight in having met his equally-gifted sister, Lottie. There is film of her describing the many long hours he devoted to practicing over arduous years to bring his art to the top. She also lamented that it is not expected today that juggling hopefuls will give 8 to 10 hours a day to practice.

As a fan of our jugglers, I recall Kay Farelli, a gentleman who juggled on skates for the Ice Capades. I think I spell his name right, but cannot find a reference for him today, even on the net.

To the day she passed Lottie was so very highly regarded that I saw jugglers get nervous when they knew she was attending a performance. The ultimate compliment from Lottie and rarely given was her "uuunnbelievable". The Brunns were very wonderful and down to earth people. Francis and Lottie and other family members are at rest I a cemetery about 3 miles from where I live in NE NJ.
