Fatima as well as posting the colors. A host of Knights were also in attendance. Dr. Theresa Burke,

The Council celebrated Columbus Day with a spaghetti dinner prepared by
Chef Mike Kincaid and his Lady, Joann. Reiser Hall was filled to near capacity
and the dinner was extremely well received. Grand Knight Lexy Larez wel-
comed all who attended and presented Fr. Dan’s mother with a bouquet of flow-
ers. Thanks again for all the volunteers who made this a memorable occasion,
especially our Ladies who provided the desserts as well as Callie and Ben Taylor
for the festive decorations, and those who helped clean up — Monte Dragon,

SK Jerome “Jerry” Koenig died about 7 am., 10/24/17
May God grant him eternal peace.
Pray for his wife Carolyn.
I stopped by and saw Jerry late this afternoon. He was not responsive to any one in the room. His hands and arms seemed quite swollen.
Carolyn thinks his kidneys may be failing, he’s had no liquids in five days. It’s probably time for prayers and goodbyes.
Thats all I can convey,
Jerry was moved to Marley House today….Hospice.
He has heart issues and breathing. Prayers for him.
I had a telephone exchange with Carolyn this morning and she has asked me to convey to all of you, that Jerry’s time with us is nearing an end. Should anyone wish to see him, they should do so now as he is becoming more and more in cognizant even to her.
It has been suggested to me that perhaps a grouping of members encircle him in prayer or rosary as the sun set of life in now ever more present for our beloved brother. That said, I intend later this morning to surmise this possibility after I’ve made an observation if this is even possible. Enough said I guess for now. Thank you and I did pass along our love to both her and to Jerry.
Lexy & Irene Larez
Just had a call from Carolyn Koenig saying that they are moving Jerry to Marley House on Ruth Street.
It does not look like we will have him very long.
Father Dan has been to see him and he has had the blessing for the sick.
Increase the payers.
Your Brother in Christ, Tom Warner
Jerry Konig is in YRMC East being treated for pneumonia.
Carol says he may be home tomorrow.
Keep the young man in your prayers.
Contrary to rumors around the council I have not quit being a Knight. I would appreciate that whoever is wending out minutes etc to put me back on their email list.
Your Brother in Christ, Tom Warner
