From a combined seniors and kids' show....
"Many thanks for a wonderful program with you at Cypress Village when the children from Montessori School came in their Halloween Costumes. You held the children - and we the old folks - spellbound with your music and words and your boundless enthusiasm. I'm so glad we were able to buy two of your CD's and Bob and I have enjoyed each of them two times and I'm sure we'll find other times to share them with friends and grandchildren. And every time we have a visitor in the house, I bring out my new Thunder Tube and surprise our guests. We have happy memories of meeting you and we do hope we'll have another opportunity to see and hear you in person sometime soon again."
