||Hi, I am Phyllis Crenshaw of Fort Worth< texas. I am a mother of two adult sons. I lost my oldest in 1997. It seems like yesterday, I have come a long way as far as getting over his murder. I never thought I could go on but with the blessing receive daily, I am starting to enjoy life again. I just want you to know Ellen, with people like you, life is worth living. I think your show is great. It is so much fun. I am a little disable, but I am not through living. I have written you several times to ask you if there was something I could do to earn some of those gifts you give away. I have owned a car but now I don't have one. I worked for the school district for over thirteen years, I have been a certified Paralegal, and always willing to babysit anybody's child. I have knee replacement surgery and I am not one of those instant healer. I am still healing from the surgery, and I have developed scar tissue. There is another procedure to correct that but I am not ready for more surgery. I am an only girl, I have two brothers, Don Crenshaw who played Jonnie Taylor until he died. If you don't know who Johnnie Taylor, ask your DJ. but I bet you know, and David Crenshaw my baby brother. I have two cousins Winnie and Shirley. They are the greatest. They have been there for since I was born. They now check on me almost daily. They know how much I love your show. I said to them what if some kind a way we got on the Ellen show. They are from Hallsville, Texas. There is only one red light you go through and then you are out of Hallsville. Shirley, the oldest of the three of use said " OMG I could just see us on her show and everybody would see us, well we laughed. They love your show and we do a conference call sometimes when you are on and watch you. We have the best fun. There is nothing greater than seeing how wonderful when you help others. They told me to see if you would let me come and do somekind of work behind stage to earn a car. They are so happy that I am now working 18 hours a week. It is a senior citizens training program that helps get better aged people get back into the working world. I want to go back to the school district subbing as a secretary, clerk, teachers. Maybe soon go back full time permanent but I have to be able to get around to the different locations. I have a son in Oakland,CA. I would be willing to come and assist you with anything backstage except heavy lifting. I know where you are located so I might have to commute at first. I do get an SSI check. OK, I haven't figured out everything yet but if you say come I will be there. I do just wonder, why is it your audience gets all those gifts just for being there, but the viewing audience gets to register to win. I might be wrong but I thought if we watch you, you get the rating and we help you stay on TV.
Well if I never get to meet you or come work for you, please know that you have put so much joy in my life because you help others. I am so proud of you. You are a great person, in fact you are definitely an ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, because you show everyday how much you appreciate your blessing. I love you for loving others. I know you love me even though you don't know me. Well it is probably about 2:30am. I know I need to be in bed but this page was up so I thought I would respond. I could go on and on about you, but I won't. Well, if you think of anything, just let me know. Just continue to be the angel you are. GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I.
P.S. I have two great son's. My youngest lives with me and sometimes when he sees me maybe sad or crying, he says, "Sop that crying it's almost time for Ellen, she will make you laugh, turn to that station.
