  2. I think particularly of Sandra and Houston in sending out my best wishes for the entire family. I never knew of Mr. Kidd as anything but a generous man with a tremendous work ethic. Houston, I know that he was a huge pillar in your life. I pray and am certain that you will carry with you the memory of a father who placed himself second to his wife and son. May that spirit of service and love live on with you. I still remember his generosity in driving us all over the place to sled during our middle school days. May you always carry your father’s legacy with you and represent him well.
