Bennie Green (8-29-20 blc) I visited by phone today with Bennie Green. He stated that he is currently on dialysis and waiting on a kidney transplant. Bennie is still quite active as he walks several times a week and rides his stationary bicycle to stay fit. We had a great visit about old days with the department. Bennie is very uplifting, has a great attitude and outlook on life.  Due to COVID, he would rather not have visitors but would enjoy hearing from friends and co-workers. His number is 713-557-3116. Give Bennie a call and keep him in your prayers.

Lorena Johnson and Irene Mouser (8-19-20 blc) Sue and I made a road trip today to visit with Lorena Johnson, widow of Chief B.K. Johnson. Lorena lives at Tall Pines Assisted Living in Livingston, Texas. We were able to visit behind a glass enclosure and wearing masks (which we all discarded). Although she can’t get outside or have many visitors, she is doing as good as can be expected.  Then we traveled to Huntsville and visited with Irene Mouser, widow of Chief Leroy Mouser. Irene is having difficulty with Parkinsons Disease and is on oxygen. Irene is now 92, still living at home but under Hospice care. The ladies were glad to have visitors and said to tell everyone hello. They have asked that we keep them in our prayers. Lorena does not have a phone but Irene said phone calls for her would be appreciated. Her phone number is 936-295-1863.

Luis Reyna, Non-Member (8-13-20 hc & blc) Henry received a call from Member I. F. Flores regarding non-member retired Officer Luis Reyna.  Luis is in very grave condition with cancer of the liver, colon and a brain tumor. He is being taken care of by his daughter, Angie Reyna. Member Flores wanted to pass along the information and said that he would appreciate hearing from his brothers in blue. Barbara talked to his daughter and she said she is going to look into Hospice for him. Luis can be reached at 281-900-1506 and his daughter Angie at 832-319-8093. Keep Luis and his family in your prayers.

Guy McMenemy: (8-11-20 blc) Henry talked to Guy today and found that he and Pat, his wife, are pretty much homebound and have caregivers coming around every so often.  He is looking for a good insured tree service if anyone knows of one as he has a branch threatening his house.  You can reach Guy at 281-469-2819

Doug Bostock: (8-11-20 blc) Pat talked to Doug on Friday and learned the results of the CAT scan on his legs.  The doctor said after looking at the results, there is nothing else they can do for his legs unless they did an exploratory surgery through his wrist to see if anything had been missed.  Doug decided against doing this since he has had so many stents, angiograms, etc in the past and did not feel like anything would be different.  Today, Henry took a wheelchair out to Doug to use when needed.  He welcomes phone calls at 281-890-7610.  Keep Doug and Mae in your prayers.

Jesse Baker: (8-9-20 blc) I visited by phone today with Jesse and he relayed that he is having great difficulty with neuropathy in his feet and legs. Jesse asks for prayers and if anyone knows of a specialist within 125 miles of Madisonville he would appreciate if you would let him know. Jesse would love to hear from old friends and coworkers. His phone number is 936-348-8643.

Arthur Price: (8-5-20 blc) I called to check on Arthur today and found out from his wife, Mary, that he is now in Hospice. He has had a series of health problems in the past and had a stroke Super Bowl Sunday. While recuperating, he fell out of bed, hitting his head on the floor.  Arthur has suffered some memory loss and is confused some of the time. Please keep Arthur and Mary in your prayers.

Charles Crum:  (8-4-20 blc) After seeing on Facebook that Charles has been ill, I called him and found that since November, 2019, he has been sick 3 times with body aches, headache, sinus, etc. After it recurred last Sunday he had an E Visit with his doctor since he had a fever this time. Even though he was prescribed antibiotics again, he was scheduled for a COVID test tomorrow. Charlie is asking for lots of prayers as he faces waiting for the results and for a speedy recovery.  He asks for no phone calls as he is sleeping a lot.
