May 23, 2019                                  UPDATE ON FRANK CRISA and JOHN REEVES

Lou Hollander sent this out today:

Just got off the phone with Frank Crisa.  As I informed you a while back, he was going into the hospital for surgery, and requested to keep him in your prayers.  His surgery went well, he said he had great doctors. He got home from the hospital this past Tuesday.  Frank had major surgery and is in a lot of pain now and seems to sleep a lot.  He is requesting that no one call him as it hurts when he tries to talk on the phone.  He wants to thank everyone for their prayers, and please keep them coming.  He also wants to thank people for all the emails.  I will send out an email when he is feeling better and will be up to phone calls.

All our best to you, Frank. We love you for your friendship and all your great work on the newsletters.

I spoke to John Reeves this morning. He is feeling much better after his surgery and is back to doing light excercises. He goes back to his doctor in a few months to see how the surgery did with his lung cancers. He said he has been getting quite a few phone calls from fellow retirees and police officers who work with his son, Scott, and thanks them. - Tony

All our best wishes, John, and we look forward to seeing you at the next membership meeting.
