Nell, I am grateful you were there. Your investment of your life into AA and its history will I hope remain an inspiration for everyone, for both those in AA who value our AA history for both its historicalness and for its foundation from which we move forward. Thank-you.... and God Bless. phill95

If not for people like Nell Wing in the earliest days of the A.A. journey, people like me would not be able to e-mail this message or any message. God Bless you Nell and thank you for all that you've done for me. Duke B.

My good friend Mel B. said it all as to Nell's A.A. service. I would add my thankfulness for her personal support of my A.A. history research and writing. I had lunch with Nell and also meetings with her in her apartment in New York on several occasions; and she graciously answered the many questions I had--the answers later used in my titles. Nell was a member of the "Wing Family of America." And we shared a distant relationship because my cousin Clark Wing and his father Captain James Wing were also part of this unique and old family organization. Because of this, Nell and I used to great each other as "Cuz." And when it came time to dig into the archives at Stepping Stones, it was Nell in company with Frank Mauser (her successor) and Paul Lang, the archivist there, who made it possible for me to examine and copy long long ago so many of the manuscripts and letters and even a copy of Anne Smith's Journal that had so long been obscured from public view and were contained in a number of my titles, particuarly Turning Point. Nell said she was a Buddhist, and she should tall for the universalist view of A.A.'s utility. I did not agree with this viewpoint, and she knew it. However, she always took the time to send me all kinds of information she had at her fingertips about the Fellowship. I'll close by recalling that it was she who wrote me a lengthy letter (now located at the Wilson House where I placed it)in which she detailed the number of places in DR. BOB and The Good Oldtimers where "surrenders" were discussed and quoted. For me, this was Nell at her best because I was hardly an oldtimer (then)and I had never been associated with the service structure in New York or elsewhere. But she sensed the importance of openness when it came to the history of the Society we all treasure. Nell paid her dues to a membership to which she did not belong. How good does it get! God Bless, Dick

Far too often, we alcoholic's tend to think only of other drunks, when we are not thinking of ourselves that is. We forget about the non's who help so much in saving our lives. Thank you Nell for helping the early members, and in turn saving mine.

My Dear Friend Bill, and all other "family" to our sweet, sweet Nell....We all know there are no words to truly describe her beautiful nature, her commitment, and how a non alcoholic could accommodate our fellowship in such a productive way. My deepest regrets for your loss. To Nell's HP, Thank You for the Loan of that very fine spirit.
Nell...Mike and I truly will always treasure your memory, because you will always be alive for us.
Lots of AA Love and Best Regards to Bill...Anne Marie S-G

As a newcomer who could hardly read when I first came to AA, I owe the Fellowship my life today. One day at a time I am beginning to live. I know how to love someone I have never met and quote them at a meeting. When someone comes into this world, there are warm hands to welcome them and when they pass to the next, there will be open hands with love to greet them.
