PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Bert, Brenda, Lisa, and Wayne


Good Evening All,
I ask for your prayers for three good people that I learned about from some workmen we had doing work at our home last week in Delaware. They were very pleased and touched to know that we would be willing to pray for their loved ones.
>  We pray for Bert’s Wife, Brenda. Brenda has just gone on Dialysis, three days a week. Although she goes in for 4 hours beginning at  4:30 AM and has had a couple of technical glitches, she is up to the task as is her husband, and they trust in God. A transplant failed but they have not given up hope. Bert is a very likable man, a Vietnam Veteran with two Purple Hearts and a great deal of pride and honor in his Service. Please pray for them.
> We pray also for Brenda’s Sister, Lisa (Bert’s Sister-In-Law). Lisa was Diagnosed with Throat Cancer on Friday, March 13th. We pray that her treatments have the prayed for results.
> When Bert’s Brother, Wayne (the Lead on the work project) heard me taking the information from his brother, Wayne asked me if we could put him on our prayer list as well. I believe he has some Prostate Cancer concerns.
Thank you all for your continued dedication and prayerful efforts. As Jim Smith says, ” Prayer Works.” God Bless.

I am saddened to pass on the news that Bob Arco, a close friend of over 50 years, passed away suddenly after a heart attack in Florida this week. Bob, a native of Marble Hill began to hang around in Inwood with his close friend, the late Joe Conway, in his teens. It was in Inwood that he met his late wife, Gloria Vann.Bob was a Manhattan Prep and College graduate and Gloria was an SHM one.His quick wit, sardonic humor, and friendship will be missed.

Tom Lindgren 78′ commented on PRAYERSREQUESTED:

I visited with Fr. Jack a week ago today and despite his physical ailments his spirit and attitude are still amazing.

After first asking about my Family he wanted to know everything about the recent Jasper Basketball Games.

He is very grateful for the tremendous support and prayers that he has received from his “Manhattan” Family
