NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN
Rev. Raleigh Watson
His daughter, Jill, posted the following report recently:
"He's like the energizer bunny, Dad is doing well.
Dad had treatment today and the last couple of weeks proved to be good days. A few more pounds gained, blood pressure is great and the Oncologist says Dad is one great looking cancer patient.
The doctor is very happy with his stats and overall picture.
The next PET Scan is going to be scheduled for the beginning of April, so we will have a true progress report.
Dad continues to have decent energy and is maintaining his feisty self. 😆"
That is very encouraging! Keep it up, J!
The situations with most of our other members remain about the same as last month. Please keep in your prayers, all of our comrades who are ill, confined to home – or in need in any way.

We offer our deepest condolences to Ray Goff on the passing of his wife, Jane. We pray that she may rest in peace. It was a delightful surprise to have J. Jones with us at the last meeting. J. is undergoing treatments at Berkeley Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV.
