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.
