We are blessed to have five grown children who, with their spouses, shine brightly–first as people, and then in the areas where they have focused their gifts and talents.

Our oldest son, Parker, is a doctor in Austin, and he has written a moving opinion piece in The Houston Chronicle about love, understanding and healing.

I recommend Parker’s piece to you. And I challenge you, as I have challenged myself, to apply these Christ-like principles to the people and the relationships in our lives where healing is needed.
