Linda, Ed Hoying's partner fell and broke either one or both legs.

Ken Watts just underwent an 8 hour surgery to repair intestines, he may be home now.

I talk with Dennis Morey almost daily and and he seems to be improving. He wants, so bad, to see Cole graduate.

Chuckles is going in to Peaches and Owens early Monday morning to under go another attempt at the cardio ablation procedure to try to stop the a-fibs, which are coming more frequently.  He's had five so far this month.  He expects to convalesce at home, Tuesday.

Many of you know Dennis Bowman as the original HAWKS' Treasurer and Vice President. I drove past his house at 7:30 this morning on my way to Brookshires to find an ambulance in his driveway.  

It wasn't until this afternoon before we could get details on what happened

A neighbor with the same idea as me drove past to spot Dennis laying in the drive way face down unconscious and bleeding from the mouth and scratches.  After awaking Diane and ambulance was called and he was care flighted to Tyler.  Diane waited for 8 hours only to be told nothing on the fate of her husband due to the lock down of the hospital.   Dennis was tested for Corona Virus due to his age and respiratory condition.  She still has no word and only can suspect he may have had a stroke and fell.  Dennis has had many health issues for years preventing him from returning to the HAWKS.

IT IS WITH DEEP SADNESS, I MUST REPORT TO YOU THAT OUR BROTHER, FORMER HAWK AND OFFICER/DIRECTOR OF HAWKS HAS GIVEN UP THE FIGHT FOR LIFE.  DENNIS BOWMAN, HORSE SHOE BEND LAKE RESIDENT, DIED AROUND 6:30 TO 6:45 am. IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS WIFE, DIANE.  THE ATTENDING DOCTORS SURMISE DENNIS POSSIBLY SUFFERED A STROKE SOME DAYS AGO AND SUFFERED BRAIN SEIZURES CONTINUALLY FOLLOWING WHICH, ALSO, WAS THE CAUSE OF HIS FALL SUNDAY MORNING AND HIS DEATH THIS MORNING.  

WE ARE DEEPLY SADDENED AT THE LOSS OF OUR GOOD FRIEND AND FORMER CLUB MEMBER AND ALTHOUGH HE WAS INACTIVE THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, MANY OF US STAYED IN CONTACT WITH DENNIS.

I WISH TO THANK DENNIS MOREY FOR HIS VIGIL DURING THIS TRYING TIME FOR THE BOWMANS.  DUE TO THE CURRENT CRISIS IN THE COUNTRY I DOUBT IF THERE WILL BE ANY KIND OF MEMORIAL OR SERVICE FOR DENNIS, BUT PLEASE CONTINUE YOUR PRAYERS FOR DIANE AND THE BOWMAN FAMILY.

Keep your prayer face on.  Lee Moore called me this afternoon with a concern for Dennis Bowman and our conversation segwayed into his family.  He said his wife, Ann has been in the hospital since March 5th with an intestinal issue.  Seems her colon is fusing with her bladder and of course must be corrected.  She underwent surgery here in Winnsboro before they left for Tennessee, for the same problem.  It looks like the problem has reared it's ugly head again. Ann is strong and hopefully with the help of her pal Lee and family all will go well.  Please mention Ann in your prayers, soon.

I know all your thoughts and prayers will be for Diane Bowman in the loss of her husband, Dennis, so I ask that you also keep Kacy Morris, James' wife in your prayers as well.  Kacy is having problems with her blood.  James said her count is very low.  James is taking her to a doctor at a cancer treatment center in Mt. Pleasant today for treatment.

Both Roman Eble's parents have been hospitalized for an undisclosed illness.  These seniors are being tested for COVID-19 as they were exposed to the virus by a health care worker.  Their symptoms are a fever, rash and nausea. Our group, in concert, hope and pray these folks test negative for COVID-19 and their illnesses are minor and short lived.  Roman didn't say where they are hospitalized, but where ever, get well soon.

Thank you all for the prayers I believe they are helping!

Ok update on my Pop he had a fever 100.F last night. They are checking for UTI related to his frequent urines. We are still awaiting the covid results.

Up on Mother from my Sister Lisa (Nurse) condensed version:

Currently she has been fed, pain is controlled, antispamotic is working, they are giving her tears for dry eyes with rounding, and kidney's functioning well...But Heart Rate is still very High.

So there you have it.
