    2. Dear Dr. Winawer,
      Glad you are enjoying your time away from your first of love of medicine. I have seen your name through the years. I was married to a classmate of yours. Richard D Levere. Recently I had the honor of naming the new library conference room in the new building where the library was relocated . Happily the project went well knowing how much Richard loved Downstate his portrait and sentiment will be everlasting. I know he would be proud.
      I send my very best wishes to you and your wife. Enjoy your dear family and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
      Diane Levere
