What a great post!!!!! My mother passed away 5 years ago, well before her time. Your post reminds me of exactly the things she would have said in your very same situation. Thank you for the warm reminder of her.
We are truly a better community with the addition of the Carr's. There is little wonder that the Texans chose, as their cornerstone draft pick, a fine young man with a great loving family. From reading your post, it's evident that the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
Here's wishing you and yours, many happy and successful years in Houston.
