REV DOCTOR RALEIGH WATSON
As I write this column, we have just learned of the death of Don Jones' wife, Doris, on April 21. We send our deepest condolences to Don and
his family, and I ask for your prayers on their behalf, in the coming difficult weeks.
Since last month, Ray Fish suffered a fall, injured his back, and wound up in the hospital for several days. He then had a procedure on his back and a few days in rehab. I'm happy to report that he is greatly improved, ready to be released from the rehab facility - probably today - and should be home by this time. Herb Taylor was at our recent meeting and getting along well with his recently,- installed pacemaker. He is scheduled for heart valve replacement at UVA on May 18. Please continue to keep Herb in your prayers
Reminder! We are still seeking a person to take the Chaplain/Members’ Services committee chairman’s position. Please consider helping out with this committee - even if you feel you cannot take the chairmanship.
