Labor Day of LOVE (Shannon is 7 years old)
Edited on Sun Sep-04-11 07:11 PM by Omaha Steve

As long as I can remember, there has been a Labor Day Telethon for MDA. Labor Day isn't just for union members. I respect many members of DU have differences with Jerry for good reason.

Over the years OS's family has given year in year out to Jerry's kids. The Dr. San Guinary (http://drsanguinary.com /) fish bowl of cash. Pizza's for Jerry's kids etc.

Early this summer a family friend (Shannon named after the Henry Gross song from 1976) was diagnosed with a deadly form of MD. 3 years at best we are told before the day we visit the cemetery. :cry:

Please consider the overall cause rather than differences with Jerry. Today MD. Tomorrow hungry kids living under a bridge?

To a Labor Day filled with love,

Omaha Steve and my extended family.

2. And for those who hate Jerry - just give and turn him off. It is the giving
that counts.

3. I always wondered about the story behind that song....
While I have never been a real Jerry Lewis fan, I have always admired him for the work he did on behalf of MD and related disorders. I remain upset that he has been removed from his telethon so unceremoniously--with no explanation. It saddens me because no matter ones differences with JL over the years, he still deserves more respect than this.

That said, I share your hope that the cause will not be adversely impacted.

Thank you for that mention of Shannon. I rarely hear that song, but will always think of your story of the namesake when I do.
