From "Trusting Trusted Servants:"
"A few hours later, Bill [W.] said goodbye:
'I went down the steps and then turned to look
back. Bob stood in the doorway, tall and upright as
ever...This was my partner, the man with whom I
never had a hard word. The wonderful, old, broad
smile was on his face as he said almost jokingly,
'Remember, Bill, let's not louse this thing up.
Let's keep it simple!' I turned away, unable to
say a word. That was the last time I ever saw him.'

"Dr. Bob died at noon the following Thursday,
November 16 [1950]."
c. 1984, 'PASS IT ON'...The story of Bill Wilson and
how the A.A. message reached the world, page 342


Every time I see this or anything from history, it reminds me to be grateful to our co-founders. Without them and the other 100 men and women, we wouldn't have this program of recovery. It is the basis for all the others. It is a basic foundation that with a few adjustments, can help anyone who is looking for recovery, no matter what side of the fence you live on, or for like people like me, who qualify many places.
I think this is posted elsewhere, but too tired to look for it. If anyone find it, please let me know and I will delete.
