“Dear PoPville,

A co-op neighbor of mine had a stroke some months ago, and I’d been helping him out. His medical condition deteriorated, and he disappeared. He’s now reemerged; I received a letter from the Dir. of Social Work at the in-patient healthcare facility where he presently resides. My neighbor can’t tell them much about his family, friends, contacts, etc., as his cognition has been affected, but he remembered enough to recall something similar to my first name, and my unit number. I spoke with the Director, and suggested that I could bring all his January – present day mail to the facility later this week (his mailbox door is broken and anyone can access it) so he can access it. Anybody care to share thoughts? Would this place me in legal hot water?”
