Last week I mentioned that my dad had passed away. I had not really meant to make a big deal about it on my blog, but I wanted to give my support for the oral history idea. However, a lot of you expressed support and condolences, for which I am thankful, and were curious about my dad from some of the small references I dropped. I didn't answer any of the friendly requests I got for information, mainly because dad was so private about his life and accomplishments that it seemed odd for me to do anything but the same. But his obituary appeared this weekend in the Houston paper so I thought I would share that for those who are interested.
