Care & Concern

Joyce Brasher reported that her husband, Al, underwent open heart surgery for the second time on December 1st at Florida South Hospital.  After spending six days in Intensive Care (mainly because there were no other beds available!), Al came home and is doing fine.  They had to cancel their planned cruise to the Caribbean, but that is something they can look forward to in the future.  They are also looking forward to celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary in February!


Bob McKenney, whose wife Velma passed away five years ago, fell and broke his hip at his home in Madison, Georgia.  Following a few days in the hospital, he spent two months in Rehab and returned to his home the middle of December.  He says walking with a walker is no fun, but it’s necessary until he regains his full strength.  We are sending Bob our best wishes for a speedy recovery. 


Ed Swietek started at Martin in 1959 and retired in 1989, having spent most of his career on the Pershing program.  His wife, Sylvia, passed away in 2009.  He is having some health issues which keep him pretty close to home.  He would enjoy hearing from his friends and former coworkers.  His home phone number is 407:644-4365 and his address is: 2217 Howard Drive, Winter Park, FL 32789-6133.  Now that the rush of the holiday season is over, a ‘Thinking of You’ card sounds like a good idea!
