Proving That There Really Is
such a thing as

HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Lewis Wexler

Susan Kent married Lewis Wexler in 1958.  He is a retired professor of radiology at Stanford and she is an artist.   

Here is their story, as told by Susan on 3/10/01
Our life together now seems to us a glorious flowering of what began long ago.  A childhood awareness of each other in competing third grade classes grew into a friendship in junior high school and deepened into an intense "Platonic Relationship" built on long walks home from Lane discussing life, love, politics, George Orwell and other philosophy, and blossomed into romance in time for us to attend the senior prom together.  
     We possess a large, wooden box of almost daily letters written while separated throughout college (Lew at Queens and University of Chicago, Susan at Syracuse) and graduate school (Susan at Columbia getting a master's in English literature, Lew at medical school in Syracuse).  We married in June, '58 and moved to San Francisco in 1960 where our first son was born.   Lew was an intern and Susan began to paint.  As a professor at Stanford University Medical School, Lew specialized in cardiovascular imaging and interventional radiology.  
     The academic life afforded our family the opportunity to travel and live in many parts of the world, including Turkey, Switzerland, London and Israel.  Travel has been the source of much of Susan's painting both literally about the places visited and metaphorically as the work became more abstract.  We continue to travel in retirement, a month in Venice in '99 and another in France in 2000, and, recently, a visit to Russia.  
     We have three wonderful, richly complex sons who continue to teach us new things about the world, three loving daughters-in-law and, so far, four grandchildren who are already beginning to give us insights into this next century.  
     Life gets better and better.
