NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN
Rev. Raleigh Watson
At least two of our comrades have been in and out of the hospital since our last “Chatter” – Wayne Strother, with pneumonia, and John Moreland with heart problems.
(There may be others – you fellows have a way of “sneaking” into the hospital without my knowing! Please let us know when you are sick, so we can call, visit and/or pray for you!)
Both Wayne and John are home now, but John may have to return for a new defibrillator in a week or so. I have talked with both since they returned home. John’s phone is 540-550-8199 Wayne’s is 540-662-1324
Romie Nickles is pretty much confined to home with pulmonary fibrosis. His phone is 540-667-1016
Bud Robertson is on oxygen full time and for that reason, cannot attend meetings or functions, but always asks, “How’s the gang?” His phone is 540-877-9132
Charles Hoak is continuing to recover and having therapy at home. Lea tells me that he welcomes visitors, but asks that you please call and arrange a convenient time, so as not to interfere with his therapy schedule. Phone is (540) 665-0828
In addition to these, those listed below are a few on our current concerns list. They would really appreciate a call – even a short one. Some would appreciate a visit, but call first. You might send a card or note from time-to-time, and let them know we are thinking about them.
Millard Pippin – home – 540-667-1876
Charles Boyce – cell phone – 304-263-0811
Don Jones – home – 540-869-1958
Leonard Laconia – home- 540-667-1716
