Dear Stephen: I wish I had know about this, so I could have been praying for you and your family. It is amazing to me that you had posted this so shortly after the incident. Anyway, I thought I was subscribed to your blog before, I guess I wasn’t, am now. I’ll still be praying for continued good health, now that I know you are okay. All the best, Sidney Peck

Dear Stephen,
I am so grateful, as is my husband and daughter, Julia that you are alright and back in action! My husband sent me this email and so forth last night right after we got finished watching (I AM) which is magnificient!
My 17 year old daughter Julia called you from Montana when she was looking for someone to interview concerning the Oscars, which you so graciously did! She was very impressed and grateful and got an A on her grade! Thank you again!
My husband got her for Christmas your two books, (Bringing back the Old Hollywood), and (The Force is with you). We are all reading them, and they are great! We look forward to hearing more from you, so stay healthy and keep on keeping on!!
I have alot more to say but believe I should keep it short!
Take Care of yourself!! Beverly 🙂

Dear Stephen,
I guess I was writing you a letter, anyway i was asked to moderate.
So my family, Hubert, Julia, myself, etc. are very grateful that you are back and still in action. You are a very special person that is needed in these times!
I will keep it brief!
Keep up the good work, and take care of yourself!!
