JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) connects story to Draddy, Vincent dePaul [MC1930 RIP]


Dear John,

In today’s print edition of the NY Times there is an obituary for Bill Cannon, a former Heisman Trophy Winner. According to the Obituary  Cannon was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, but before he was inducted, he was arrested and plead guilty to a felony. The board chairman of the Hall, Manhattan College’s Vincent dePaul Draddy,’30, RIP ( Draddy Gym) denied him induction, over ruling his election to it.

An interesting piece of history.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for two


Good Morning All,

Nancy Maksomski asks for her prayers for her Dad. Dave will be having his Pacemaker replaced today, Tuesday. The MDs are hopeful they will be sending him home today. However, there is an additional procedure he needs to have done and depending upon how the Pacemaker replacement goes, they may admit him for a few days. In addition to the Pacemaker, after having his left knee fixed, his right kneecap cracked and will have to be replaced sooner rather than later but there needs to be at least a month between the Pacemaker replacement and the knee operation to prevent infection. Nancy’s Dad has had a rough year but he remains in good spirits. You may recall that just before Easter he had Knee surgery and we hoped he would not be hiding any Easter Eggs in the trees for his Grandchildren. We pray that replacing his pacemaker goes as hoped and that his other health issues may be taken care of soon. 

I ask for your prayers for a dear friend of mine who is experiencing some health issues for which the MDs have yet to find the cause. They continue to test her and feel that she is healthy in spite of what is transpiring. We pray that the MDs are able to pinpoint the cause of her discomforting symptoms and able to treat her as necessary. 

Thank you for your prayers for these two good people and please keep their Families in your prayers as well. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
