This comment was left on the blog a couple days ago, on an old post that we had about the passing of Mitch Hedberg.
In the last few months I have spent a LOT of time in my car travelling back and forth to my folks house. My Mother was diagnosed in mid-November with Stage IV lung cancer. By the end of December, home hospice had stepped in to help us all. I logged a lot of hard (emotional) miles finding respite and laughter listening to the comedy channels on Sirius. This is where I immediately fell in love with a comic I had no prior exposure to, Mitch Hedberg. After Momâ€™s passing I decided I wanted to track down some of his workâ€¦it has truly been a salve to my soul. Of course, I had no way of knowing Mitch was gone. What a legacy he has left! God bless you, Mitch, for the joy you will forever give us. My prayers to those he loved and who loved him. I am so sorry that I discovered him posthumously. What a wonderful delivery. Sweet and funny and spot-on. Thanks for helping me thru a rough patch.
