Our Prayer List
for our friends in distress (Updated 10/15)
Many of those in our patrol family, or their family members, are suffering through the hardships of cancer treatments or other life threatening illnesses. A complete prayer list of our friends in distress can be found on the Member's Page.
Retired Captain Don Slemmer suffered a serious fall at his home seriously injuring his arm and leg. He has been treated and is recovering at his home.
Retired Sergeant Bob Vanderwissel has been in Riverside Hospital for about two weeks in critical care. He currently has a feeding tube and can't talk on the phone due to the pain it causes. He can however read short text messages. Originally he had a tear in his aorta near his spline but has no idea what is wrong at this point.
Candy Miller, wife of retired Trooper Jerry Miller, has been diagnosed with advance pancreatic cancer and has entered into Hospice Care.
Retired Captain Charlie Ireland is being treated for early stage dementia and other health related issues.
Retired Sergeant Tommie Paisley has been battling bladder cancer and leukemia and is under hospice care at his home in Zanesville. Tom's children Mike, Matt, and Mollie are looking after him and asking for prayers from his OSHP friends.
While cleaning his camper, getting ready for the trip to Ohio to attend Rev. Ellsworth's memorial service, retired Colonel Paul McClellan lost his balance and fell off a ladder. He suffered a broken right shoulder (in a sling) and a left wrist (in a cast). He also has a concussion. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers.
Information to send cards of encouragement can be found on the Member's page. Prayers are always encouraged and appreciated. If there are others in our patrol family that are in some type of distress or difficulty please let us know so we can add them to our prayer list.
