Hi Ellen, I'm so glad I got the chance to see your Mark Twain Prize Ceremony. It was AWESOME. I was moved when you said you wanted to make your mother laugh. You are such a beautiful person. Thank you so much for the laughter and the tears. God bless you! Love, Nita

Congratulations
You earned it hopefully its not the final season of PBS tv IT wont be by my Presidential vote Even though Mitt is a fellow Mormon. As an End Stage Renal Disease patient and surviving on Medicare at 58 years of age I cant vote for a man that would pull the plug on my lifeline and that of thousands of others that depend on healthcare assistance from the government to survive.
Ellen I have a great respect for your wit humor and general kindness you provide to many folk. Your show is a nice part of the day when im in Dialysis chair for 4 hours You to get my mind off me and my challenges Thanks for the past 3 years of help with a smile and the tease it brings me joy and a bit of hope for a good future..

Just wanted to say CONGRATS, ELLEN!! I completely enjoyed the show. And I know you've heard this time and again--but you were my strength when I was going thru chemo. You made me laugh, smile and you gave me hope. My kids made up the living room so I could watch you on a big screen tv. I am a survivor now. You had a lot to do with it! I thank you. God bless you and I thank Him for you.
Linda
p.s. Both you and Portia looked beautiful. Love Portia's hair!!!
My prayers to your mom too. xoxo

ELLEN! I watched you receive the Mark Twain Award tonight and it was more than deserving to a person who really does give her heart and soul to her fans! I have been inspired by you to reach higher and support the masses who speak up and are counted and don't settle for less than but more than! Thank-you for keeping a door open for your friends,(if i may say so) and not closing your eyes to the people who open their hearts to you... you are an inspiration! I will continue to dance because you ask me to and i will continue to believe because you told me "I was worth it!" Thank-you for never giving up and never letting go... your heart was always in the right place!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I just watched the PBS special! Ellen deserves every award and/or prize they can throw at her! She is so very special. So very funny, kind, smart, loving, thoughtful and incredibly humble. I could go on and on. There is just no one like her. Her wit, her charm, simply amazing! Thank you so very much for making my day a whole lot brighter. Laughter, there is nothing better. I truly hope you are as happy as you seem because you deserve it. You deserve the world.
Thank you!

Ellen,

You have a big fan touring the country in a RV. You should have one of your researchers look into having her on your show as she is a former recruiter now helping the unemployed by giving secrets to getting hired. Her goal is to help 1 million people get hired. Her website is AbsolutelyAbby.com. She has a book out and has been on TV and she talks about how much of an inspiration you, Ellen, are to her.

Good luck.
