Chaplain's List as 2/4/18

Call, send a note, or a visit – A phone call or a visit from a shipmate means a lot, even if you don't know the person. If anyone knows of a shipmate that should be added, I don’t. Please let me know.

A reminder, there are many who have recently had or are having scheduled surgery. In most cases they have asked that I don’t put their names on this list. Your thoughts and prayers are requested for each of them.

I had indicated that the local service for Earle Forbes would most likely be in June, I spoke with his spouse recently, and it will more than likely be in April. Will give a specific date once I know

Binnacle List

Please say a prayer for all who may also be under the weather including spouses and relatives. Special note: This should include those who are suffering from some debilitating illness, and may be in a nursing home, etc. There are many who come to mind that had previously been on this list.

God bless. Jack
