  1. From Bobbi Hanks:

    Jennifer,
    I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to tell you what a wonderful evening you provided for my Bosom Buddies. It was one of my all time favorite programs, and I’ve had a zillion of them. You have a very special way of bringing out creativity in people who have never shown any inkling of it before. I think you really touched everyone’s hearts, especially mine. You have a very special way about you and the topper was your ukelele playing. Wow!!

    With hugs and hope,
    Bobbi
