To: SENATOR GEORGE MCGOVERNI have wanted for a long time to thank you for your boook about your daushter. I too, suffered watching my daughter destroy her life. I also used 'tough love' with my girl. I never regreted it, as I felt it was the right thing to do.
My daughter is now 51, and stopped her drinking 3 years and 7 months ago. She first started at age 12. The nightmares of these 36 years were very difficult. I feel she has caused great harm to her two children. I tried to spend a great deal of time with her children, yet they certainly were influenced more by what happened at home. My grandchildren know that I spent over a thousand hours with them, and they appreciate it. My daughter is unable to even talk about what harm her drinking caused the children.
At this point, I don't think what is negative from the past has to be dragged into the present. I am just so thankful to see my daughter happy and enjoying her life without alchol.
I also want to thank you, for serving this country. If we had more people of your caliber in Washington, this world would be a better place. My very best to you, Terrie McDaniel Prescott, Arizona
