PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) reports a success

2014-Jul-12

Good Evening All,

A heart felt thank you to each of you from Dave Ellis who has been in our prayers.

Dave says, Thank you all for your thoughtful prayers. They worked!

My second cataract procedure went very well yesterday. For the first time since I was 5 years old, I am able to see without glasses. I attended 9 AM mass this morning, and found that the entire church was alive with vivid colors and so much more in-focus. It was wonderful to see.

God guided the hands of my surgeon in accordance with your prayers. I am grateful that things turned out so well. And I am grateful to have friends who prayed on my behalf.

Take care and God bless you all.

…Dave

Thank you. God Bless.

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) adds a Jasper’s Mom

2014-Jul-10

Good Morning All,

I have just heard from Matt as he shares the sad news of the Passing of Matt’s Mom, Adelaide Donohue. The loss of this special lady will be felt by and sadden so many. Some of you know that she was part of a long line of Manhattan College Alums. Mother to Four of them and very proud of it. Matt and his Mother had bought adjoining coop apartments in Riverdale’s Skyview a few weeks ago and we moved most of her furniture and bulk items this past Sunday when any of us last saw her. I was on the phone with her the night of July 4th picking up some items at the grocery on my way out to Southampton. I arrived in the house about ½ hour later and didn’t disturb her per her wishes. I found her in her room the next morning. As Matt says “Needless to say we and especially Mom and myself are in need of prayers.”

Matt is very grateful for your prayers and good thoughts. Please keep Mrs. Donohue and her Family in your prayers as the Family suffers the loss of this good woman. We pray that the Family finds peace in the sure knowledge that she is in God’s loving Eternal Embrace in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Below is further information regarding Services.

Thank you. God Bless.
