NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN
Rev. Raleigh Watson
We have had many changes in our lives since the last edition of the “Chatter.” We are not able to meet, to visit those in hospitals or nursing homes
or attend funerals as a group. During this strange period, perhaps we can make use of the telephone to keep up some contact with our comrades. As I write this column, I just heard of the death of Muriel Simanek on March 23. Please keep her and her family in your prayers. Ralph Martin is now at “The Willows,” and settled in rather well. No visitors are allowed in these establishments – not even family. You may check on him through his wife, Norma, at the home number. (below)
Don Jones is now at Envoy rehab. No visitors, of course.
Phone calls to “Buck” Thompson’s family, and Charles Boyce would be welcome. Charles Boyce is at the VA Hospital in Martinsburg. His room number is 5th Floor, Ward B, Room 340. You may call him at 304-263-0811, Ext 2952. This will take you to the nursing station in Ward B who will connect you to Charles.
Some of our comrades who would appreciate a call or visit are: Millard Pippin – phone – 540-667-1876 Don Jones – phone – 540-869-1958 Leonard Laconia – 540-667-1716 Ollie “Buck” Thompson – 540-869-4496 Ralph Martin – 540-877-2819
