JEMAIL: Report on Brother George

Phil & John,

Brother George Berrian a former Principal of Manhattan Prep suffered an apparent stroke this week and needs our prayers.
I received following update this morning from Joe Dasaro (Prep ’56, MC ’60):
spent a few hours sitting with him yesterday. He appears to be in a coma so I don’t know if he could hear me. He has no physical paralysis. The nurses and other brothers said they would take turns sitting with him through the night. Many Manhattan people have visited including Mrs Heckendorn’s daughter (remember her mother…the secretary in the  MP Director’s office). His brother from Long Island is planning on coming tomorrow.

ADMINISITRIVIA: Left computer at home


Came to the Jersey shore and left the computer at home.

Hence, the weekly compilation will be delayed until late Sunday afternoon or early evening.

Sorry; getting senile. (Brought the power cord FWIW!)
