Thanks for the mention guys. It really touched me. I can honestly say that nothing has made this process easier than being able to break away from the mounds of paperwork and meals brought to us, to listen to Earwolf. Jeff and I had a really nice email exchange, but I mention some of what I said to him here. We fight (AND WIN) against things like the tragedy in Sandy Hook and loss in general, through creation. You both create beautiful, wonderful humor that makes the world of millions of people better. I was a brighter, happier person at the end with my mom because of jokes I heard through you all.
To pass along a little fun, at the end the funeral home came for my mom. We carried her out through her garden and placed her into the back of their vehicle. My sister stood next to me, clutching her teddy bear that our mother gave her as a baby. We watched them pull away and through the tears of everyone I turned to the group and said, "That's the way mom would have wanted to go. In the back of a sensibly priced Dodge Caravan."
There was a pause, then everyone laughed. We carry on, because we must, but I carry on with a smile because I know this world is a wide and wonderful place, and it's a little wider and a little more wonderful because of the Sklars, their fans, and the people that help them get on the air.
Thank you. From me, and Linda HENDERSON.
