Should DU send something in rememberance of MFM?

A donation to a charity/cause? Flowers?

He was such a huge presence on DU, I just feel we should do something.

Any suggestions?

EDA: I only interacted with him a couple of times and I know he had a lot of friends here on DU. Anyone know if he was into any kind of causes/charities?

I know he never knew this, but he helped me get through some very dark days after the loss of my dad. I think he did that for all of us ... it seemed to be his mission to give us good and often hilarious things to make the days better. I would love to donate to any cause or remembrance for such a good, kind man.

I feel like I've lost one of my best friends.

Check with Kali--she'll likely know best what would be appropriate.

The American Heart Association is a wonderful charity if I can put in a plug. Good reviews with charity navigator...

That's if Kali needs suggestions... I defer to her close friendship with him.

Its all so sad...
