For the past five months Bro. Jerry Weirich has been staying at Fely-Mar Elder Care Home in San Pablo. Suffering a severe bruise to the stump of his amputated right leg, Bro. Jerry needed specialized care which the community of Richmond could not give. His recovery has been slow and only recently was he able to begin using his prosthesis. His hope is to regain enough strength to return to the community by the end of October. Meanwhile, October 5 is his birthday. So, the community took Bro. Jerry to The Embers Barbecue Restaurant to celebrate. Both he and the community enjoyed each other’s company and Bro. Jerry got to know better this year’s novices, John Castonguay and Kevin White.
