I worried about my Dad's well being for years. Now the worrying is over. I remember him teaching me to ride a bike when we lived in Houston. And how to write a FOR loop on a TRS-80 when I was in elementary school. He told me to write it down before I hit enter...I didn't and it scrolled off the screen. I was afraid to tell him I messed it up! He worked hard for his family. I remember at least one year that I knew of he took an extra job just so we could have nice gifts for Christmas. In the end, I wish he would have used what he worked so hard and saved for to improve his quality of life. I think it is quite possible moving out of the house in Lucas broke his heart and he didn't want to move past it. He had a beautiful garden and put a lot of time into tending to the needs of the property. It just became too much for him to handle himself. Dad, now you can smell the flowers whenever you want.
