Some people, when they're gone, leave some pretty big boots to fill; in this case, we can't even. One of Austin's best and beloved, that inveterate trickster of a sculptor and all-around creative provocateur
, the one and only Daddy-o Wade, shuffled off this mortal coil a week ago
. And now, after cursing the relative increase of darkness caused by his passing, friends and family and fans are joining to host a party
, a wake, a memorial, a righteous tribute to the man and the wonders and whimsies he achieved in his 76 wild years.
