RET. SGT. GENE ROBINSON

I spoke with Geneís wife Marily the other day, who informed me that Gene is very ill and is in lots of pain.  He was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which I am told traveled to his brain and other parts of his body.  Doctors feel that there isnít much they can do for him.  Prayers are need for Gene and Marily they do work.  Please pray for them both.  Please donít attempt to call Gene as I mentioned he is in a lot of pain and isnít up to speaking with anyone.  If you like you can send him a card.

LIFETIME MEMBER RET. P.O. RAY BURKE

Hi Louie,  
I am Ray's wife, Joan, and just wanted to let you know he went in the hospital with severe pain in his left leg. Thinking it may be a blood clot,  they found it is an aneurism and are going to do surgery. It will take 2 to 3 hours I will let you know how it goes. Any prayers will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Joan

Get well wishes can be sent to Ray at brutus9jb@gmail.com

January 29, 2017                UPDATE ON RET. LT. MARTY BLAUSTEIN

From Lou Hollander keystonecop1@verizon.net

I received a text on January 20th from Martyís wife, Betz, that Martyís surgery began at 8:40 AM and that he was in good spirits.  His surgery was to last about 7 hours.  She said the hospital staff was amazing.  About 3:15 this afternoon I received another text Betzy stating that the surgery went well. She said Marty will enjoy a long life full of good health and fun times. They caught this low grade cancer very early.  They can all breathe easy. Marty and Betzy thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

I spoke to Marty the other day about his mail being returned from the Post Office and he told me that he had moved and was currently in a hospital in Pennsylvania that specializes in cancer treatments. He is feeling better and is hopeful that his condition will be treated favorably. - Tony
