In Memory: William Devereux Klapp, my dad

I have been neglecting my blog again under a big cloud of sadness.

After a crazy scramble, I got into San Antonio late Monday, April 16 and my dear, beautiful, talented and kind Papa died the following day. I miss him more everyday. As spring creeps in around here – I keep wanting to show him some tiny, beautiful spring bloom that he would appreciate with me.

Papa there to catch my wee’un for her first joyful step.

And my dad and mom enjoying some TX sun last year.

      I was so lucky and honored to know your parents as an art student. Their wonderful view of this life has shaped me. I am still creating something original every day.
