We haven’t seen each other in more than 26 years and it’s quite possible you don’t remember me as one of your patients. I saw you in 1979, both privately and in a group at St. Vincent’s Hospital.
Anyway I wanted to tell you that I continue to be grateful to you for diagnosing me as alcoholic and for urging me to get sober. I joined AA in Greenwich Village in 1980 and have not had a drink since. What a blessing.
You were a pivotal person in my life. Thank you!
