NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN
Our comrade, Doug Purnell, passed away on 6 September, after several illnesses and hospitalizations over the past several months.
Rev. Raleigh Watson
Many of us were able to attend his funeral service, which fell on our regular meeting day, and necessitated cancelling the usual lunch. Doug’s family was most appreciative of our being there in uniform and in such great numbers. (Around 30 or so!) Thanks to all of you who attended!
We were pleased to see Leonard Laconia at our last meeting!
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 Charles, 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.
