When I was 16 years old and living in Coronado, California, Jerry Lewis was 37 years old and owned a yacht that he docked there. I had such a crush on this man. I followed his life and all the boys that were born to him, wishing that his plea of "Think Pink" would bring him a baby girl, but no such luck. I even joined the Jerry Lewis fan club. Well, one day a girlfriend of mine from school, whose father owned a yacht and docked it there also, told me she thought Jerry and his family would be taking the yacht out that day, so we went to the dock to "sneak a peek" at the man I adored, but it was a no show. Anyway, now I am almost 59 and Jerry is 80 but I still love to watch his movies, only with a child of my own. Stay well, Mr. Lewis, because you have been loved for a long, long time by so many of us. Looking Back, from San Antonio, TX.

How neat to know! My birthday is March 15. I will be 48. I have been loving Jerry Lewis since I was a kid. Jerry Lewis will always be a kid to me...
Hi Jerry,
I am sitting here watching the Colgate Comedy Hour on DVD. Dean is crooning the tune 'Frankie and Johnny' while you ham it up with Marilyn Maxwell. I have about twelve episodes of the show. I want to find them all. I finished reading 'Dean and Me' today. I bought it for my Dad for Christmas knowing I would get it back when he was done. I really hate when a book I am immensely enjoying has to end. I felt like I was re-living those times with you. I really cried when Dean died. My boyfriend was like, "Honey, that was quiet awhile ago, haven't you heard"? My boyfriend Chris is a big Dean Martin fan.
Ohh god...I remember as a kid how I would be rolling on the couch at your antics while watching you and Dean on the late show...or, late, late show. I was about 14 in 1973 and I was a huge fan. I remember hearing my Mom and Dad one night as they lay in bed. I was in the living room late at night dying laughing..tears running down my face..all alone with my sides splitting...when I heard my father say to my mother, "Listen to her"...Now, when I think about it my Father was born in 1937. He was about 14 or 15 when you first came out with the pictures. I know my father was a big fan..and, since he is a crooner himself..Dean was a big added bonus. Now..here I was 25 years later loving you guys as much as he did.
I cannot wait to bring him some of these Colgate comedy hours tomorrow. He wanted them after he finished the book. Thank you so much for the joy!!! I am so glad you wrote this book. I know you and Dean will be reunited again. You are reunited for me right now. I will find the rest of these comedy hour specials. They are gems just like you and Dean.
I should have wrote this letter a long time ago. Better late than never. Thank you, pally!
affectionately,
Donna P.
