An open letter to:
Dick Gordon, Host,
Thank you so much for your story on Bob Erb, the Canadian lottery winner.
It was the perfect story to end my not-so-perfect day. I was warmed to the core listening to Mr. Erb talk of his generosity towards his neighbours and to various charities.
What a wonderful, selfless, loving human being he is. I was silently cheering for him in my kitchen as I was doing the dishes as if I were cheering for a football player on the field … “way to go Bob … go Bob go … you da man!”.
He won not just out of luck but because someone knew he would pay it forward and do great things with his winnings!
I’d like for him to know that he made me feel like a million bucks (and then some!) just listening to his story.
Thank you, Mr. Erb. You have a big fan.
Ladera Ranch, California.
