Emily and Rachel Homer
You've given me great encouragement at times I really needed it and made important contributions in your own ways.  I love you both dearly!

David Viscott
Thanks for calling me back in 1987.  Thanks for always being there for me, for giving me everything you could and for being yourself.  There will never be another like you.  Your life's work will continue to gain the recognition it deserves.  I am sorry you weren't able to come to that Friday meeting.  I miss your voice on the radio, the phone calls, and your cutting to the heart of the callers' personal struggles. The world misses you.
