To the best Uncle a girl could ever have. Your book is a treasure, and I have enjoyed sharing it with all I come in contact with. Not only did it offer so much insight to all our lives, but truly makes me proud and honored that we could be a part of your wonderful life. We have learned and developed much from yours and my parents teachings. It has made all of us appreciate our place in this world.
I love you very much.

Now that I have watched the DVD and am in the process of reading your book, I feel the overwhelming compulsion to express my deepest gratitude to you for capturing your history in show business! I was young, inexperienced and naïve when I had the opportunity to work with you in Giggles Galore. But I must admit that you and Jim made quite an impression on me and I have always been proud to say that my career started off in Vaudeville/Burlesque! I am so grateful that you took the time, energy and creativity to record your life for those who can relate and for those who merely dream. It is now and has been for quite some time, my goal to dance in the "Palm Spring's Follies" when I am old enough! And, yes, I am still dancing.
So, I just wanted to say, Thank you for your work, your life and for sharing it with all of us!
