Family Assistance Updates
June 2015
Jack Miller:(6-29-15 nf) We visited with Jack this afternoon by phone and he reports that he was diagnosed with a malignant tumor on his kidney. His doctor feels that due to his diabetes and pacemaker and the fact that it is a slow growing type of cancer, they will not begin any type of treatment. They have set his next appointment for 6 months. Jack has confidence in his physician and will rely on his judgement concerning the treatment(s). Remember Jack in your daily prayers.

J. J. "Joe" Rose: (6-26-15 nf) As a matter of information, Joe is living up in the Livingston area soaking up retirement. He is 81 now and living alone and would like to hear from some of his old work mates, Cell 936-433-2524 Home 936-967-4636. Take time out to give him a call.

Willie Joe Kovar:(6-26-15 nf) We visited with Kovar today by phone. He reports that he has completed his treatments for his lung cancer which included 7 weeks of chemo and 33 days of radiation all of which has left him weak and exhausted. He had planned to attend the reunion on Saturday but he is just not able to make it but count on him being at the Fredricksburg reunion for sure. Continue your prayers for Willie Joe, he still has a ways to go and give him a call to cheer him up.

E.W. GodfreyUPDATE (6-25-15) Wife, Celia writes: Surgery went good. Tuesday was rough, slept most of the day but they said that was ok due to extensive surgery. His head looks good, all round now.  They put him in a regular room late Tuesday & are trying to get him moved to rehab floor to start intense rehab. They have only sat him on the side of the bed so far & he did good. Left arm & leg are moving some but they say should get better once they start rehab. Doctors are pleased. Still have a ways to go. Thanks for the prayers. [More]
