Subject: RE: Obit: Eric Von Schmidt RIP (2 Feb 2007)
I'd like to thank everyone for their kind words, and for taking the time to say goodbye to my father, Eric. And I'd like to reassure weelittledrummer that in fact, his life was a very happy and rich one. He did what he loved, and made a living at it, which is more than a lot of us can say, I'll wager. And he certainly loved a lot of people - made them nuts, sure, but he always had something to offer. It's true, though, that the last few years have been difficult. I don't know if I believe in heaven, but if there is one, he's there singing and playing again, and hoisting a glass to those of us left here to remember him.
