Mary Wilson at the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association just sent out an e-mail to the members of the association saying that Matt Martinez, Jr., who has brain cancer, is in hospice care. Mary writes:
I was just informed that Matt Martinez has taken a turn for the worse. He was put into a hospice unit in Irving and his life looks near finished on this earth according to Estella. She has asked for prayers of comfort at this time. When I get further word, I will let you know.
So close your eyes and say a prayer for the man who has been changing our lives with Tex-Mex, or Mex-Tex as Matt refers to it, cooking for over three decades.
