    I really love your show. I also really love your Netflix special. You make me happy. My 18 year old daughter also loves you, says you are the funniest man in the world. You have a way of cheering me up when I’m down, and I love your stories about your son, Frank. I am a very happy “Fluffy Fan” because I was able to get a pop. I also tried to put other stuff in my cart, but every time I tried, my connection crashed. I’m not on social media, although my daughter is, but if you get this I just wanted to thank you for being you. I hope Netflix gives the show a second season. I’ve watched season one twice. Thank you. 🙂 Sincerely, Sara J
