HEALTH LINE:   I am happy to report that Rita Orzechowski (163 Duchess) has graduated from a walker to a cane but she still needs a little more practice.    She is grateful for the prayers and cards sent her way.......may they continue.      Jane Haggerty   480-1655

CONDOLENCES to the family of Velma Livingood (200 Squire Court) who passed away September 30, 2000 at Bon Secours Hospital in Venice.    A memorial will be sent to the American Heart Association in Sarasota.

An E-Mail from Klee Fitze (formerly 153 Duchess)  —  A note to thank our many friends in KGC who sent cards and notes to me during my recent surgery.   I have a brand new right knee.   I told the surgeon I would not judge the quality of his work for several months, as Dr. Jaquith (Venice) had done such a fine job on my left knee replacement.    I am fine, however, and Ruth and I look forward to seeing several KGC folks on Nip´s Thanksgiving trip to the Southeast Caribbean.
 
THANKS!!  For the many prayers, cards, “and GOODIES” sent to me after surgery.   I am doing better each day and hopefully will soon be walking the Park.   Justin and I appreciate your care and concern.  —–  Betty Mohr
