Default Bill W. saying goodbye to Dr. Bob.

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.

Love always,


I share because I care.
