As you may or may not know, the last few years were pretty expensive and his family ran up a pretty huge bill. While we all helped in our own ways, we didn't get hit with an invoice after taking late night phone calls or helping him through an especially difficult episode. That said, I think it would be a nice gesture to celebrate his life by digging his family out of the hole a little bit. What do you think? Can you pitch in? I've got no "premiums" to offer, no special awards, just the satisfaction of knowing that you helped out the people who gave him to us in the first place and supported him to the end. And karma points. Plenty of karma points.
Full disclosure: They do not know I'm doing this.
