It wasn't until 10 p.m. last night that I learned of the passing of comedian Jerry Lewis. I remember as a kid watching the Telethon with my parents. Then on Labor Day I would be nervous he wasn't going to make his goal to help Jerry's Kids. Every year he met his goal and blew by it. I also remember one year as a kid, my sister and I went around our home town to find cans to bring down to the local Telethon so they could be recycled to donate the money to the MDA.

I also remember my father watching movies that had Jerry Lewis in them. He was a very funny man.

Jerry did a lot for the Muscular Dystrophy Association raising over 2 billion dollars to help people affected with that disease. I knew someone personally that had the disease and received electric wheel chairs from the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They weren't cheap either.

Jerry Lewis a true legend and he will be missed. I'm sure he has a special place up there for all he's done to help others.
