Harvey then turned to Mike Epps, who appeared via satellite live from Bernie and Rhonda’s alma mater in Chicago.
Mac’s wife Rhonda was visibly touched by the act, and choked back tears as she thanked those who made it possible.
“I’m so touched, I’m so honored, and I’m always amazed at the outpouring of love people still have for him,” she said. “It just warms my heart that they remember him and love him the way that they do.”
Mac died in 2008 of complications from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease.
His family was on hand to chat about the Bernie Mac Foundation, which was set up in the comedian’s memory to help fight the disease.
