Leaving a Legacy of Health
In April, 1991, San Antonio Hospital Foundation received $5,000 from the estate of Dorothy Mae Thompson of Oakland, California. There was one problem, though. No one at the Foundation knew Mrs. Thompson. Who could she be? Since no one knew about the legacy, there was no opportunity to thank her for her gift. As it turned out, Mrs. Thompson had once lived in the area, used the hospital, and was pleased with the care she received. But it would have been nice to be able to thank her in person.
