Saving a life! — While drinking, my husband and I sat and chatted with the man next to us. As the night went on, he began to talk about his problems and committing suicide. We continued to chat, trying to help, and he agreed to let us contact his doctor. He had also given us his name and address. I checked up on him the next day. He wasn’t answering the door, so I left a note. I found out that after talking with us, he checked himself into the local hospital for help. He later thanked us for saving his life!
