Condolences to the family of Jerry Dunnigan (BMSN 65-67) who passed on 02 FEB 2018.

Receiving Treatment/On The Mend
(Thoughts and Prayers [TaP] Welcomed)
TaP for Larry Dixon's (RD3 65-67) son who has suffered from a Heart Attack.  02-20 

Update: He has walked up and down stairs, down the hallway and worked with the therapist. His nurse said if he gets the shock vest today, they might release him! His heart is only working at 34% so he has to take it easy. 02-24

Final update: He is home. Still very weak and hasn't gotten his voice back. Compared to where he was 2 week's ago, he is vastly improved. Has been to his heart doctor, and said he is on the road to recovery. Thank you all for your Love, Support  and Prayers. 03-09
