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

Good Morning All,

We have been praying for Dodie, the Mother of a good friend of Mike McEneney. Mike received a message from one of Dodie’s Sons and I share it below. Thank you for your prayers. A prayer of thanks would be a good thing. Thank you once again for being there for so many. God Bless.

From Dodie’s Son

Thanks for the prayers – by yesterday morning all of her kidney and liver functions had returned to normal. Mom was up, alert and greeting visitors. Lots of family, friends and clergy made visits which seemed to energize her over the weekend, and ate food for the first time since Weds.

We remain more hopeful than we were on Friday that she will pull through and get some use out of her new hip – we will see.

Thanks all the prayers and positive thoughts -

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Kelly’s Dad

Good Evening All,

From John Reinke, a while back, we received a prayer request to pray for the success of a very important Final exam for a Masters. Degree being taken by Kelly. She knocked it out of the Ballpark and was very thankful for our prayers.

John shares a request for our prayers for Kelly’s Dad who has suffered Gall Bladder attack. Gall Bladder attacks are very painful but don’r always require surgery as was called for by the MDs. Kelly and her Dad have opted for the non-invasive route at this time and have gotten the MDs to agree and step away from surgery.

Please Keep Kelly’s Dad in your prayers for a quick and complete recovery without surgery which they feel can lead to other complications. As they wait out the healing process, please keep Kelly in your prayers as well.

Thank you. God Bless.

The prayer group did so well with this young lady’s finals that maybe it can work on her Dad’s gallbladder.

Just giving everyone an update on my dad’s prognosis.  He and I opted out of having his gallbladder remove for now despite the pain he had last night.

It is his first gallstone episode and we want to do a wait-and-see by changing to a low-fat diet. Doctor was too quick to want to remove his gallbladder which can cause further complications down the line. I swear doctors are now pushing for unnecessary surgeries just to make money by exaggerating the possibilities.

What happen to getting at root of problem and not just being so extreme or put bandages on everything.  Doc finally agreed to the wait and see too.

I’ve been up all night and we are leaving the final appointment of the day. I’m going to finally get some sleep now.

Thanks for everyone’s concern.
