LOVE & PRAYERS
Please remember the following resident in your prayers:   Jim Kober, Unit 102; Sherry
LeVigne, Unit 124; Sandi Sikkema, Unit 134, and Bud Ragan, Unit 154.
VIRGINIA CHICK, FORMERLY OF UNIT 259 – We extend our sympathy to Virginia’s family
and friends on her passing (at age 96) on March 12.
ROY HARMON, UNIT 324 – missed a step and fell earlier in March.  Other than a few
stitches, he is doing well.
GARY PROOS, UNIT 330 – had a recent meeting with his donor team.  They have narrowed
the pool of bone marrow donors down to 7 or 8.  At the earliest, he will be able to get a
transplant by the end of May or June.  In the meantime, he will continue with chemo for one
week each month.  If he can remain infection-free and as healthy as he is now, it will be a go
for him.
MAX MCCONNELL, UNIT 339 –fell face first on March 11 as she was leaving her house
bound for the dentist.  The dentist stitched the inside of her lip and sent her to the ER for x-
rays.  She was told she has a sprained wrist and other cuts and bruises.  Since her wrist does
not appear to be healing properly she may undergo further testing.
GENE FRANK, UNIT 433 –recently underwent surgery to place two stents in his aortic
aneurism.  He experienced complications and was in ICU for seven days.  He was recently
moved to a rehab facility.
STEVE AMATO, UNIT 466 – took a bad fall at work on March 24.  He received a couple
fractured vertebrae, a skull fracture and concussion, and experienced bleeding on the brain.  
The bleeding has stopped and he was moved to an assisted living facility on March 29.  He
will have to remain quiet with no visitors for some time.
