Rev. Raleigh Watson

I am pleased to give you some good reports on some of our comrades who have faced medical situations over the past few months:

Edgar Tufts is home after surgery and a couple weeks rehab at Orchard Ridge. He is doing well and happy to be home!

Dick Boxwell continues his recovery at home. He is making real headway with some of the lingering effects of his surgery, and thanks all who have called, visited, or sent cards!

J Jones continues to receive positive reports from his treatments, which are ongoing. He has now passed the critical eight-month point since his lung diagnosis – an important milestone as his doctors evaluate treatment.

J sends his thanks to the chapter for their prayers and calls – and has us very much in his thoughts and prayers!

Bud Robertson is doing OK and sends his best wishes to “all the guys.”

Don Jones and his wife, Doris, were able to be with us at the annual picnic. (Doris had been in the hospital last month.)

I suggest a phone call to any of these from time-to-time, along with Charles Hoak and Charles Boyce – or any of our comrades who have missed a meeting or two. Here are some phone numbers to help you:
