As most of you know, our friend and frequent guest host Mary Katharine Ham and her two children suffered the loss of her husband and their father Saturday.
Thousands of you have stepped up with contributions to an education fund for the two babies, and I genuinely hope a few hundred more do so that, for years into the future, MKH can say to her children: “Your father and I and you were so loved that 4,000 people came together to send you to the college you choose and which you work for. It was their way of telling you how wonderful your dad was. Think about that: Daddy and I had 4,000 friends who loved us and you so much that they did that.”
It is a message they will understand forever. Thanks to all of you who have already sent that message and to those who will by week’s end. It is deeply appreciated by everyone who loves the family.
