Dan Callanan reports the following Good and Welfare news: Please say a prayer for the repose of Noel Heffernan’s dad James and Tom Diviny’s mother-in-law Dorothy Merchant. Your past prayers and good wishes seem to be working quite well when you see the recoveries being made by Connie Smith, Pete McGovern, Larry McKeever, Jimmy Doyle, and Frank McDonagh’s bride Mary. So keep them coming for Kevin Donohue’s mom as she battles cancer, for Billy Kenney who needs additional chemo treatments on his esophagus, Brendan Malley who strained his neck after running his car into a wayward tree, Dan Holland’s bride Pat who underwent sonar treatment, for Dan and Msgr. Jack O’Keefe who both have had cardiac complications, Denis Troy as he fights another round with prostate cancer and Joe Shea as he continues to battle his illnesses. Jim Fitzmaurice has stopped by the pub with his lovely nursing attendant from County Clare… ”Stretch” always had good taste.
Yours in Friendship, Unity & Christian Charity,
Dermot O’Connor Moore, President
