Adventures with the Cross’

He was a father, husband, son; a fisherman, a little league coach, a Scout master and a residential archietc with his own biuseness.  A full whole man with daily routines like cooking and chores like cleaning, favorite foods and prime time tv shows like "Cheers" and "Law and Order."  He was who we asked to help open jars and move furniture, he tied knots and hung paintings.  He drove, he taught me to drive alone with all the back allys and short cuts through AUstin city streets.  

He is the father i care for, the husband my mother watches after and the son his parents worry about.  Though he can no longer fish, drive, cook, tie knots, design houses or be left alone i still see a part of him in there, beyond the demintia.
