Comments on: Remembering Susan http://hornes.org/2003/08/remembering-susan/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Maria Elena Del Mar http://hornes.org/2003/08/remembering-susan/#comment-474 Fri, 05 Sep 2003 00:49:29 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/?p=193#comment-474 This message is to John Dishman. First of all, I offer my deepest, heart-felt sympathy on the loss of your lovely wife. The loss is new and you have a heavy heart, yet you appear to be surrounded by loving, caring friends and family.
You must know how lucky you are.
I suffered a loss as you did and I found myself very much alone. My husband passed away in 1997 after seven years of suffering with heart disease, and finally, lung cancer. I was left to care for our teen-aged daughter by myself.
Yet I can attest to the fact that time is a powerful healer, as is faith.

My daughter, now twenty-two years old is a student at SMU (my alma mater) and she is doing remarkably well. She is a bright, sweet, well-adjusted young lady that would have made her father proud. We often think of her father and we honor his memory. Knowing that he is no longer in pain is a tremendous comfort to us.
Since my husband’s death, I have gone to culinary school. Cooking has been a life-long passion for me. It is a way of expressing a wide variety of beautiful things.
Somehow your story has touched something deep within me and I want to express some fellowship.
Perhaps if you are up to it, a group of my fellow chefs can prepare a dinner for you and your family and friends. If this sounds like something you would like, let me know. I would be happy to talk to you about it first over the telephone. I can be reached at (972) 335-3495.

However, I must comment on how small the world is. Tricia knew the Dishmans as a schoolgirl up North. Then came back in touch with the family in TX. Tricia married my husband, Mark’s brother. Now I read that Paul Baxter’s wife was a college classmate to Peter Dishman, and Paul Baxter was a college friend of Mark. It is just amazing to me how people can travel in what seems like large circles only to find little connections
within them.
