Chaplains Report - Partial Update September, 2020
Dear fellow Marines,
I pray all your families and loved ones are staying safe during this pandemic and no one you know has caught the COVID-19 virus. As most of you know, I continue to reach out to all our members on our roster and most respond.
Most of our brethren, their families and friends, are healthy and doing well. The best thing about my health and wellness checks is I got to talk to a few of our members no one has seen or heard from in a long time and a few said they would try to make a meeting. The sad thing is our roster is failing in that several numbers are no longer valid or in service so I have no idea of their status.
I would like everyone to keep our fellow Marine brothers and sisters in their thoughts and prayers. Gerald Humphrey is recovering from his partial foot amputation. Bob Cicero’s wife, Doni, continues her battle with Cancer. Joe Sicilians wife, Delores, is recovering from surgery and will be undergoing treatments for the next couple of months. Colleen Kiel is recovering from a serious work related leg injury.
It is with great sorrow I report Frank Di Bartiolo's long time Long Time Life Partner Peggy passed away. Frank said she went peacefully in her sleep after a good meal and was in fine spirits. Please keep Frank and his family in your hearts and prayers. Our brother Dennis Smees, lost his brother earlier this month.
Also, please keep Jerry Sarkovics and his wife Suzy in your prayers as she continues to have health issues. Richard Sylvester continues his battle against diabetes and his partner, Lynn, continues her battles.
We plan to have our next meeting on November 7th, till then everyone continue to follow the quarantine guidelines and stay healthy.
God Bless and Semper Fi
