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:

I mentioned that day, Ralph Martin had been in the hospital and not able to attend, but am pleased to tell you he is coming along fine and almost back to normal. He expects to see us at the next meeting. Edgar Tufts called me to check in with a good report – having some therapy, but no other treatment. Jack Keep is still doing well – will know more after next doctor’s appointment, but feeling well – much better with surgical staples removed! Shirley Bombardier is having therapy following a mild stroke which affected her right hand – just a few days after our picnic – Paul says she is doing well!

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:
