    Not a humble brag, but I did donate a small amount to Shriner's Hospital in Eric's name. Today while sifting through my mail I came across a letter with a return of address sticker in the top left corner from LYNCH - Sacramento, CA. When I opened the envelope there was a thank you note with a copy of Eric's obituary. It looks like a program that a funeral home would hand out at visitation that includes a color photo of the little guy in his A's gear. I was surprised that in the obituary there is no mention of the Wig. Here's how the family referenced the show; "Eric was a frequent participant on a nationwide radio show and gained notoriety and fan base throughout the country". I thought this was a nice gesture of the family, in their grief to take time to recognize the fans who made a donation.

    Nice of you to donate... and nice of them to say thanks. :thumbup2:

    People hardly send thank you notes anymore - it's sad that we are surprised and happy when we see one.

    I think we all know that answer.

    "Eric was lucky to get the exposure from my having him on, right Robin?"

    Boy, you'd sure hope that Howard did something, even if anonymously (which is how I would expect him to do so). If he didn't, what a fucking dick! I'm not one to bash people for their lack of charitable contributions, but Howard got so much mileage out of Eric over the years, it would be a shame if he didn't do something. I bet Kimmel did something nice for the family.

    Actually Howard is waiting for his thank you card from Eric's parents too. For making Eric a nationally known celebrity.

    Class act by Domo Cup and by Eric's parents. The amount of class almost makes it not Stern related.
