PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for “Big John”


John Reinke has shared news from Pete Sweeney about his Dad.

Thursday night he was increasingly disoriented and did not bounce back early on Friday.  We had him taken to the hospital for a another workup.  Result is again hypothermia but this time there is no medication to point to since we stopped the Losartan a week ago.  Warming blanket restored body temperature but his systems no longer are able to self regulate body temperature.  Cat scan, blood work etc are normal but prognosis is not good.  We will be heading to the hospital once care giver gets here for Mom around 10 15:am.
Will advise further during the day.
Please keep Mr. Sweeney and they Sweeney Family in your prayers as we pray that the MDs get Mr. Sweeney stabilized with no further complication. Please keep the volume up for this good man. Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

[JR: Pete and I are cousins and his Dad — he was “Big John” and I was always “Little John” — was huge role model in my effectively fatherless life. He taught me a lot about life, being a husband, and being humble. Some of his lessons I even learned — a little. Dona Nobis Pacem.]

Good Afternoon All,

I have just received from John Reinke,the Obituary link for Peter’s Dad, John V. Sweeney and am sharing it with you. It also contains visitation and Mass Of Christian Burial information. 
We pray for John, his Wife of 74 years, Dorothy and their Family. This good man, a United States Army WW11 Veteran, will be missed by so many whose lives he touched right up to the end of his journey. A truly steadfast member of the Greatest Generation, a loving husband, a loving Father and a friend to so many. It speaks of his devotion when his almost final concern was for his wonderful Wife, Dorothy. He is at peace in God’s Eternal and Loving Embrace. Please keep John, Dorothy, Peter, Dianne and their Family in your prayers. Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
