Hope you are doing well. I successfully contacted KC Brown last week. The 10-40 you gave me is his residence in Accokeek and I spoke with his wife Billy Jean. KC is currently an in-patient care at the Restore Health Rehabilitation Center, 4615 Einstein Pl, White Plains, MD 20695 (240) 448-2000) and they of course don’t allow visitors at this time. He suffered a stroke a few months ago but is in good spirits and recovering.
KC wanted me to give you his cell phone number, and his OK for you to give it out. He’s on: 240 448-2054. He sends his regards and best wishes to everyone. We spent a little while reliving those “...Thrilling days of Yesteryear…” I’ll be checking with him at least weekly and will let you know of anything changes.

Bonnie Glaubitz - This is a Bob Spigner update: Bob, His Mom and the Doctor and the powers that be had a meeting this morning.....Bob will not be going back to the Apartment with his Mother, his new home is room 239 in the Health Unit for the rest of his life. He is not a Happy Camper....very depressed. Bob has to be lifted with a lift into his wheelchair which he can't use alone because of his impaired vision....he runs into things, he can't stay in it very long it hurts his back, when in bed he has to be turned periodicaly in the bed to prevent bed sores, he has a hard time eating, I don't know what else to say except its very sad.....his Mom said she never thought at age 87 she would have to live alone, she thought Bob would be taking care of her. Please if you get time visit him. He needs to know he hasn't been forgotten I am told he can't use the phone but cards and visits are welcome. Brother John Davey went by to visit Bob and found him at this address. 11750 Asbury Circle Solomons, MD 20685 room 240
