October 19, 2021                                        UPDATE ON JOE McGARRY

It saddens us to send this out, but Joe gave his OK on it. He called last night letting us know the results of a PET scan taken last week. Unfortunately, his doctors have found the cancer has spread to the lining of his lungs and into his bones. Joe has an appointment Friday at Sloan Kettering to discuss treatment alternatives.

God bless him, but he has accepted what is happening and is still positive of the outcome, whatever it may be. His words were: "It is what it is!"

Pleae continue to keep Joe in your thoughts and prayers.

You may contact Joe by phone at 516-314-0155 or emails to fopeagle@aol.com

June 30, 2021                                                 ED RANIERI ON THE SICK LIST
From Lou Hollander keystonecop1@verizon.net


Ed is having some health issues and prayers are requested for him. Calling on our Transit Police Prayer Warriors.

Back in the early '90s, Ed was on the Executive Board of the Retirees Associaton and was instrumental in the first attempts to get the VSF benefit for those unjustly denied it. Unfortunately, the odds were stacked against us and, as they say, the rest is history. Sadly, Ed resigned from the board because of differences with the current president at the time, Mike Spadafora.

Please keep Ed, and all the other Transit retirees on the Sick List, in your prayers.
