|February 5, 2014 RET. P.O. PAUL GIVEN|
Forwarded to us by Lou Hollander as received from Paulís wife Lauren email@example.com
Well it is time for you to ink up your "Get Well Soon Paul" rubber stamp as Paul is about to do it again. Tuesday February 4th Paul is going in for a 'revision' on his 23 yr old artificial hip. Seems like only yesterday we were all playing volley ball at his 'hip hip hooray' party...
I am really starting to get suspicious about his frequent 'excuses' to find a reason to go back to the rehab facility. I know it isn't the food so it has to be one of lovely young ladies and their sponge bath technique...
The duration of his stay in the hospital and if he needs to go to AHC for rehab will only be decided after the doctor goes in and battles to remove the old parts.
Just when I thought I might not have any interesting material for my next Christmas letter...
We said it before and we'll say it again, Paul...all our prayers and best wishes go out to you (and your wife, of course) for a good, long and healthy life.

Our prayers and best wishes to Artie for recovery from his illness.

THE POWER OF PRAYER
Ret. P.O. Ed Ranieri (FAST EDDIE) has been hospitalized since Sept. 2013.
First in Staten Island University Hosp. for 5 weeks then to Columbia Presbyterian where he is today.
In October of 2013, a request to the Transit Family went out for your prayers. Since then he has been making some progress although very slow.
On Tuesday, Jan.14, 2014, he finally got some good news that the tumors have shrunk quite a bit and what remains of them was expected at this point of treatment. He still has about 2 more months of treatment in the Hospital.
I would like to thank all the Brothers and Sisters who have prayed for Eddie and maybe you can say another one or two for him.
I am informed by Louie Pagan that his wife, Cecilia, had surgery on January 7th and all went well. LouPagan53@yahoo.com
Today Cecilia is seating up and also has started walking with the help of the nurse. The surgeon is confident that he got all the cancer out.
Now comes the recovery process. Louie thanks God and all the prayer warriors in blue. He request to please keep the prayers coming.
Louie's email is
Just to let you know my son, Joseph Jr., gave me a kidney on Sept. 24, 2013. We are both doing great. It's like a new lease on life. Hope to see you at a meeting soon.
Joe Bilello firstname.lastname@example.org
All our best wishes and prayers to Eddie, Cecelia, Joe and Joe Jr. for a speedy recovery.
