Leroy Hill underwent emergency abdominal surgery on Friday September 1st. The procedure was successful and he remains in ICU on a respirator.
It is anticipated he will be off the respirator today or tomorrow,  and moved to a regular room by the weekend. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

I will be going in the hospital Thursday morning for neck surgery. Unless it is an emergency, please hold all emails. At this time, I do not know when I will be able to resume sending e-mails.
Thank you.

Our prayers and best wishes go out to Lou and Leroy that they may fully recover back to good health.

HI Charlie,
I want to let everyone know that this past week, Troy Henegan, Martine Richardson, Tom Wooding and I went to visit Stan Caldwell. Stan is recovering from a heart condition and was in the hospital for about 6 weeks, but is handling the situation well. Stan is still Stan; loud voice, big smile and lots of Transit war stories. Stan is in good spirits and on the road to recovery. He has lost about 25 lbs during his hospital stay, but is now eating solid foods.


Our best wishes to Stan for a full recovery back to good health.



Unfortunately I will not be able to be on my computer as often as I usually am.  I am having serious neck problems and it is very painful when I sit down at my PC.  I have had an MRI and found out I have a herniated disc and a pinched nerve.  I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon on 8/30 and will know more then.


This past Friday Christine had back surgery.  I had spoked to her the day before the surgery and she was in extreme pain.  I spoke to her today, 2 days after the surgery and the only pain she has is from the healing process, nothing like before.  Operation was a success!   If you would like to call Christine her cell # is 561-703-0349

Just the other day, Christine sent the following to Lou Hollander:

I can't tell you all how overwhelming surprised I was when I received this beautiful bouquet!! Your calls and prayers were more than enough, I'm very grateful, & as I said, Blessed to have you all in my life..

Brothers & Sisters. I thank you & love ya!!!

May we take a long moment to remember & treasure the memories we all had w/John Kelly...loved that man...May he RIP????????


On 8/24/ Joe will be going into a NJ hospital for back surgery.  Please keep Joe in your prayers that all goes well.  Joe’s email address is JMastromar@aol.com

Our well wishes go out to Lou, Christine and Joe for a full recovery back to good health.

Received this from Louie Pagan.  Well wishes can be sent to Louie at LouPagan53@yahoo.com

Hi Lou,

Just to let you know that after we got back from Florida we were dealt with bad news.  Ceci's cancer is back.  Again she will be going through chemo.  I pray that this time the chemo will kill those cancer cells.  Please let the group know so we can get those prayer warriors going.  Thank you for all you do.  Take care, Louis


Spoke with Mike Yesterday morning and informed me that he was back in the hospital again.  He apparently passed out in his home and was admitted to the hospital 6 days ago.  He had a pace maker inserted and will be leaving the hospital and going to a rehab facility.  Mike’s cell number is 727-510-9472

Our prayers and best wishes go out to the families of our fellow officers above for the well being of their loved ones.

From Lou Hollander keystonecop1@verizon.net

Tommy was just released form Trinity Hospital on Thursday, July 13th, after having knee surgery.  He was suffering for years with his knee and was afraid to go for the replacement.  I went to visit him in the hospital the day after the operation and he was up and walking with a walker with less pain he had in years.  He will have rehab for a few months and will be good as new. It is requested at this time to hold off on any phone calls.

Our best wishes and get well fast, Tommy

June 21, 2017                               SICK LIST UPDATE - RET. P.O. RICHARD PRA

From Lou Hollander keystonecop1@verizon.net

This information was received from Bob McGuire about 5 days ago

His daughter Cheryl visited him and Richie is still on a ventilator and not sure if he can acknowledge the present of people.  He will probably be in the hospital for many months and the hospital is hoping they can take him off the ventilator gradually, although they are not sure at this writing if there will be any damage to his organs or his brain.  It was reported from the time he was transported in an ambulance to the hospital and in the ER he may have "died" 9 times and revived.  According to the daughter, there is improvement, but it is unknown on a recovery or the length of time it will take.  Prayers are needed.
