Please say a prayer for our immediate past State Deputy Sid Thiel, who was hospitalized over the weekend with a TIA. A TIA, transient ischemic attack, is often referred to as a "mini-stroke". It is typically cause by a small blood clot in the brain that temporarily stops blood flow to an area and causes the symptoms of a stroke. Once the blood flow resumes the symptoms resolve. Sid is home recovering. Please say a prayer of thanksgiving that he is feeling better and another for his ongoing health and happiness.

I am sad to report that our Brother Rodger Baughman of St Juan Diego Council 15729 passed away May 28, 2017 at 4:25 pm. Rodger has been a kind and generous founding member of our council. He served for a year as Grand Knight, even while undergoing treatment for cancer. He has also been generous with his resources, having funded the council's original "cooking set" as well as personally contributing to our 'Brother in Need' fund. Always cheerful and happy which is rooted in his deeply spiritual and reverent attitudes. We are blessed and grateful to have known him. We will miss his cheerful presence in our lives. Please pray for the repose of Rodger's soul.
