Grapevine : February 2011
Dear Grapevine Many of the people I work with have been deaf since birth or early child- hood. ey use American Sign Language, rather than English, as their primary language. I'm happy to see more and more meetings o ering sign language interpreters. When other members are welcoming and support- ive to those with special needs, we see the barriers between su ering and sobriety fall away. Michael L. Minneapolis, Minn. In the know A er 29 years of sobri- ety, I am chagrined to find an obituary stating a deceased's membership in AA. Why not mention, as they do on ships, that the person was a friend of Bill W. or Dr. Bob? And add, as did an obituary I read recently, something like, "and through that association [the person] became familiar with many other friends, too numerous to name here." ose who know, know; and those who don't know, don't know! Ray C. Overland Park, Kan. Expiration date Imust take exception to the article, "Life and Death" (October 2010). I think it goes too far to expect that we remain Bye, bye barriers Thank you for your re- cent cover story about recovery for those with special needs (Septem- ber 2010). I work with an underserved population, deaf adults, and appreci- ate those who understand that some people may have di cult challenges, but all can benefit from working the Steps. I'm happy to see more and more meetings offering sign language interpreters. Vol. 67, No. 9.
