". . . his jokes and prat falls are mainly for the kids, his humor transcends the audience and I think he's hilarious!  As you know, it makes a parent's duties a lot more exciting when you can enjoy the show as much as your child can."

Dear Inky:

Thank you for your magnificent shows at this year's Earth Day-99 Celebration.

The event was attended by well over 1,000 students and regardless of age, your shows were tremendously enjoyed by all. We also appreciated your flexibility when we had unexpected attendees the first two days. This year's event would not have been the success it was if it wasn't for your participation and we look forward to working with you again next year.

Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Roebuck:

Thank you so much for coming to Sunnybrook Children's Home. All the children had such a good time. I appreciate you staying a little late and making balloon toys for the kids.

I just wanted to let you know that because of you we made a breakthrough with one child. The little shy girl that you put the hat on and that almost didn't take the balloon you made her, well by the time we left she hugged us good-buy and wanted to know when we would be back. I don't think this would have happened if you hadn't been there and made the initial try to include her.

Let me know if you need a reference. I will be glad to help.

Dear Jeff (Inky),

Just wanted to express our appreciation for the great entertainment that you were able to provide for our Fall Foliage Camporee. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performance, campers and staff alike. We hope that you enjoyed your visit to Roosevelt and sharing your talents with this good group of folks. We are thankful that you could take your time to be a part of our program.

We hope to see you in the near future and from depths of our hearts, Thank you!

Dear Jeff,

Thanks so much for the wonderful program you recently presented as part of the Terry Library's summer reading program. Your show was a perfect complement for our readers' celebration. As always, I was impressed with the ingenious way your presentation appeals to all age groups. We received compliments from young and not so young.

Again, thank you for your professionalism-dependability, punctuality, flexibility, and willingness to go beyond "the call of duty". I was appreciative of your taking the initiative to entertain the early arrivals with balloon sculptures while last minute preparations for the party were being addressed ... what a pal! You are definitely a BIG hit with the Jackson-Hinds Library System. Save us a place on your calendar for next summer.

I'm enclosing a couple of photos to commemorate your trip to Terry! I hope you enjoy them. The fascinating subject matter makes up for the photographer's lack of skill.

Dear Inky,

Thank you for your participation in our first ever Wish Kids' Reunion. We truly appreciate you entertaining the children. You were the hit of the party! I have already had two mothers call to tell me how great you are.

As you know, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Mississippi grants wishes to children with terminal or life-threatening illnesses. Our Wish Kids' Reunion was a celebration of our organization's 20"' birthday. Since 1980 the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America has granted over 80,000 wishes.

The Wish Kids' Reunion invited wish children, their families, and volunteers throughout the state to celebrate the Foundation's birthday. The carnival themed party was a huge success, with over 200 people in attendance. Thanks to generous donors like you, each and every child was able to win prizes and go home with a big smile on their face.

Thanks again for your help in making our Wish Kids' Reunion an extraordinary time for the wish children of Mississippi. We look forward to your continued support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation in our endeavors to serve the children of Mississippi.
