Recently I realized that in ‘six chocolate coated ice creams’ I had named a couple without their knowledge. I tracked them down. Even though it was forty plus years ago the husband immediately knew who I was. His wife had recently passed away after a brave fight with cancer. We enjoyed one of those warm, welcoming conversations as we talked at length. I offered to send him a copy of the Trilogy which I posted that same day and we finished the call promising to stay in touch. It was one of those Kismet (pre-determined course of events) occasions. I knew that the timing was perfect and I pray that re-visiting those occasions will bring much joy to him in his time of loss.
