“We are overwhelmed by the loss of our husband, best friend, and son’s father. He was known as millions of writers and comedians, but for us he is simply all of us. It was the center of the world. We don’t know. We are grateful for how we would go without him, but for the memories we have forever. Of the love and support we received from everyone. Thank you for the overflow. This is a tragic and sudden loss, and we respect our privacy during this time of sorrow. “

He Compared to the loss felt by his wife and son, we are grieved and sorrowful. On behalf of WKUK, we have the privacy of a time of deep sorrow and the impossibility of living without him.
