Update: Prayers for Ken Macinga and Carol Ann Wearden

Brother Knights,

I talked with Zoey this evening finding that Ken has come down with pneumonia. I have not talked with Ken, but Zoey said he is not feeling well at all. She said he is in dire need of our prayers. Tuesday, his pump was refilled. Zoey said he felt pretty good Tuesday. Wednesday morning he woke up not feeling well. Today, his doctor said he has pneumonia. Please keep him in your prayers.

Also an update from Bill Wearden about his wife, Carol…
Thanks for the prayers. Unfortunately, the diagnosis was Lou Gehrigs. Please keep her in the prayer list please. Thanks, Bill Wearden

We pray for both Ken & Zoey and Carol & Bill.

Many blessings to all!
Fraternally, Gary

Funeral Arrangements for Lou Bradshaw July 11, 2022, Beloved Spouse of Cy Bradshaw

Everyone,
It is with profound sadness, that I share the email
notice, that I received from the Pastoral Office (thank you Robert Martinez), at the end of this email, with you.
I heard the news over the weekend, and was shocked. Our beloved Sister In Christ, Lou Bradshaw passed away, suddenly. May she Rest In Peace. Leigh Ann, her daughter, contacted me, this afternoon, to assure that I had the services information. She said that there would not be a Reception, due to short notice scheduling. I assured her that I would release the Information, this evening. READ ON…

Leigh Ann said that I could share the following, with all of you…
“Velma, Mom fell on 6/28/22, at her assisted living residence. She was transported to the hospital, but did not recover. Mom had poor balance, as she struggled with Parkinson’s. She and Cy, (her beloved spouse) had just celebrated their 66th Wedding Anniversary.”

Leigh Ann said that she and her sister appreciated all of the calls they had received when the news began to travel to her friends , that Lou had fallen, and was hospitalized.

Though we are all aware that… we know NOT, the hour of our death…we are usually shocked when it happens…especially when we have seen or spoken with the person, recently. Such is the feeling I have at the news that Lou, was called to go live with Jesus. it seems that I just saw her in church, in her favorite Pew, several weeks ago.
She is safe and well, now, with Jesus.
God bless you. Lou.
