An Ode to Gordon

See the Comment

Anyone attending my week long or weekend cooking courses from 1991 in Santa Fe and Woodstock, NY until 2008 remember Gordon's quick smile and his amazing wit.  He loved to be sure the margaritas were made just right and even loved kibitzing everyone while they were cooking--helping where it was needed.

Gordon's 80th birthdayI remember vividly as though it was yesterday when in 1991  I had a cracked rib and had a full schedule of cooking classes.  At one fun class in Greenwich, Conn., at the Hay Market,   he insisted on lifting all the trays for me to cook from so it would not hurt my painful side.  One lady commented as she was so impressed--she said, "You are so nice and helpful, you should be called Mr McNice, not Mr. McMeen--his actual last name.

And so it was--as long as he was physically well, he loved the classes and going and doing things with people of all sorts.  After a very long, 6 year illness,  Gordon's body said its final good by, while tightly holding my hand last Tuesday, April 13, 2010.

To the right is Gordon with me, his family and friends at his 80th birthday--two years ago.  We were all glad we went all out for his birthday in our home. 

I have been a bit tardy and uneven with writing these blogs as I was so torn, time-wise with running the business and home front and saving time to be with him. For the past year and a half he was forced to be in a Nursing Home and he hated the isolation from all he had formerly known.  His health just wouldn't allow any other.
