June 20th Update...He would love phone calls cell is 757-773-3243

June 14th Update...Dan got moved last night to Atlantic shores, seaside, room 114.  He's trying to adjust with this big change so some extra prayers are welcome  thank you

Dan is in Hospital at Princess Ann for now as he fell down the garage stairs and landed on his right arm, shoulder, and broke the humus bone and 3 ribs, so lots of pain and of course pain medication messed up his system so watching his kidneys and watching for pneumonia.  He will be moved to re hab as soon as hospital clears him, don't know which one yet.   Kids have been a big support but we do need some prayers as this is

very challenging.

Just a note, if any one goes to see Ann Salvato, the address on this e-mail should read 3100 Shore Drive, Hoy Center at Westminster Canterbury, room 272 (second floor).  Eve and I visited her this afternoon, she was happy to see us, but she is very tired and so is Jack.  Their spirits are okay, but you can see the strain on the both of them.  You know Jack, he is so devoted to Ann, what a Lady..   


Eve talked to Doris this evening and from what I understood, she only has 2 (two) months to a year, to be with us.  The tumor is growing, probably stage 4 (four) This information just breaks our heart,  all we can do is to intensify our prayers asking the Lord to be with and comfort them the both of them with his blessings.  They send greetings to everyone.

Ann is located at Westminster Canterbury, 3100 Shore Drive, Hoy Center at Westminster Canterbury,
