Rev. Raleigh Watson

As I write this installment, we have had a few changes in locations for some of our people. I talked with Barbara Lewis and learned that Jack is now in a nursing facility in the Front Royal/Strasburg area.

  Barbara would like to attend our meetings from time-to-time (she is a member) but belongs to another group that meets the same time we do.

John Moreland has been transferred from WMC (after a two-month stay) to Consulate Health Care in Woodstock. (Next to hospital on Rt. 11) John has no contact phone at this time.

J. Jones is undergoing treatment in Martinsburg City Hospital (now Berkeley Medical Center- WVU) – He moved to Martinsburg last summer. J. has set up a page on “” where he or his family post reports on his progress. You may go to it and check on him. His last posting was that he felt well enough for a dinner out with family – good news!.

Charles Hoak continues his recovery at home.

All of these and those listed below need our prayers and certainly a call or visit would really be appreciated. You might send a card or note from time-to-time, and let them know we are thinking about them. These are a few on our current concerns list.
