: I called Eric earlier today and he asked me to tell everyone thank you so much for all of the kind words of support and all. He told me he thinks the would of everyone on the board.
: He is still a bit down and overwhelmed at this point, I think.
: I asked what we all could do for him and he replied: after a bit of thought (actually isn't too sure what we could all do yet).....
: He did say we could all meet him on Saturday at his "burnt out" house; in our hip boots and rubber gloves; wear old clothes, and bring the pick-ups to help him clean up the mess. A bulldozer would be nice, also.
Jo, Thanks so much for letting us know that you talked to Eric. I'm so distressed about his situation, as I know everyone on this board must be, especially those who have met Eric. I hope he promised to let us know immediately if he thinks of anything we can do to help out. I wish I COULD be there with my with a shovel to help him clean up!
I take it from your email to me earlier that no clothing items are needed at this time? He & the kids are okay in that regard? I know he has lost all his personal possessions & treasures that he hadn't yet moved out, though. I'm sure a great deal of that is irreplaceable, but if there is anything practical that we can send him, I feel safe in saying most of us would gladly pitch in and do so.
Thanks for updating us!
