    Chris, this is a piece of real journalism, something I rarely see on the internet. You found a human story full of meaning in a long lost bit of paper. As your friend said, an alcoholic’s life touches many others, but even beyond that, everyone’s life effects many others with both good and bad. You put a lot of time and effort into writing this and it was very much worth it. Thank you for doing it.
