Dear Mr. Wong:
I am writing to compliment you on the excellent and informative article in the Nov. 2, 1989, issue of Orange County Life entitled "Painting the Past." Your coverage of the art exhibit of works by Alzheimer's patients was thorough, very professional and very much on target.
The exhibit, called "Memories in the Making '89," is a new and unique idea, one which is breaking ground in the areas of patient communication and research. It has given those who view the artworks an opportunity to see into the "windows on the soul" still alive in the patients devastated by this disease.
Thank you for writing about this event in such a sensitive way. Your coverage has allowed us to reach many new individuals who may not have known about us and what it is we do for Alzheimer's patients and their families. On behalf of the board of directors, I thank you for helping us remember those who no longer can remember.
G. Kent Barnheiser,
Executive Director, Alzheimer's Assn.
