MEMBERS' WELL BEING
PLEASE KEEP THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS AND DROP THEM A NOTE/E-MAIL.
It is with Great Sadness that the membership is notified of the passing of Brother Wayman Hemphill #833 on September 6, 2021. Brother Hemphill joined the department in 1976 and retired in 1987. He was 70 years old.
Bro. Russ Caudill
Prayers needed yet again. Russ has suffered his third silent stroke in 3 months. He’s currently in AAMC awaiting inpatient rehab placement, we hope. No visitors or calls yet, please. I’ll post again when I know where he’ll be.
UPDATE:I’m sorry I haven’t given any updates on Russ. It’s been kinda hectic. He’s now in Autumn Lake at Spa Creek in Annapolis. He’s having physical, occupational and speech therapy. He was here a few years back and most of his therapists still there and remember him. They treat him like an old friend and he loves it. I don’t know how long he’ll be there but hopefully he’ll be there long enough to gain his strength back. He can have visitors. He still doesn’t do well with conversations on the phone. He’s in room 108 (a private room ). Everyone must wear a mask and only 2 can visit at a time. I’ll try to be better about posting…thank you all for the thoughts and prayers!!!! Mary.

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.
