Dear teacher,

Mr. Reeve said that in the days after the accident he contemplated suicide, but seeing the faces of his wife and family dissuaded him. His wife, Dana Morosini, an actor and singer, yesterday released a statement thanking "the millions of fans" who supported her husband.

Q : "seeing the faces..."is a subject of "dissuaded", isn't it?

All the best, :)
