|July 21, 2018 SICK CALL FOR FRANK CRISA AND FREDDIE MACK|
I spoke to our editor, Frank Crisa, today and found he is recuperating from a serious injury suffered in a fall last week. Frank was walking into his friend's home when he tripped and fell. In attempting to protect himself, Frank wound up shattering his right elbow and was in Staten Island Hospital for 5 days for surgery and repairs. He's home right now and is in a soft cast so his computer work has slowed down a lot. He will undergo rehab to get things back to normal.
The board and members wish him well and we look forward to his next piece of work in the next issue of our newsletter later this year.
Well wishers can contact Frank at his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
From Lou Hollander:
Calling upon all my “Prayer Warriors in Blue”. My very dear friends Freddy Mack and his wife Susan have both been diagnosed with cancer. They both have appointments in the next week for further testing which will let them know the plan of how they will proceed. Freddy is having a run of real bad luck as a few days ago he had to put their dog down. Please keep Freddy and Susan in your prayers. Thank you! Freddy’s email is email@example.com.
