Hi Lilly and Jane, My name is Sam and have recently joined the BOD of GLAAD. My wife Marisha and I are hosting a table at the upcoming GLAAD Media Awards April 2, 2016 and we wanted to invite you both to be our guest. We love your work and we feel so grateful that you incredibly talented ladies are also part of our LGBTQ family! You can reach me directly at email@example.com or my cell 863-287-7232. All the best and much love to you both! Samuel Thayer & Marisha Nowak Here is my Bio on GLAAD.org if you would like to know more about me. http://www.glaad.org/about/board/samuelthayer
Dear Lily, I have grown up watching your movies going back to 9-to-5. I just watched Grandma and was blown away. Your (and your oartner's) talent, intelligence and all the laughter you've created have made the world a better place. Thank you both for that.
Back in 1977 or 78 I ran into you on 16th Street in Wash DC. You were out for a walk before your evening performance and I was walking to the eclipse for an 'after work' softball game. You looked like someone I knew but I could not place you. When we passed I must have been staring because you gave me a big smile. As soon as you smiled I knew it was you. Sorry for staring, but I really could not place you.
So I'm 47 years old and this is my first fan letter/(email?)! I felt compelled to send you a note letting you know how much I enjoyed Grandma. Wonderful and thank you! Now may we have some more please..... Keith
Finally saw "Grandma" the night before last. I utterly and completely adore you! I have since "9 to 5"! Love and bless you forever. I must see you perform live. You are Queen! xoxoxxo!!!
Hi Lily, I Live in the Carefree community, mostly lesbians. IN 2000, my deceased partner, Janie Wallace & Connie Carmichael created the very first Lily film festival in our community. The last time We saw you was in Sarasota when you took the Lily award from me and showed the audience and told them about the film festival. You will be very happy to know the Lily is still going on. This year we have 20 Film entrees. We still display all the pictures you sent plus the pictures of Janie and Connie with you when we met in Naples after your show. I still have the Polo shirt with the Picture of the Lily award on it. 30 of us from Carefree came to you show that night in October 1999. You met us in the back after the show and signed everyone of our shirts and had pictures taken of each of us with you. I thought of you tonight particular because we are having previews the next two nights. Your participation with us back in the early days was so appreciate it and made everyone very happy. We still show the films you made of Earnestine and Mrs. Beasley I'm a little late asking but if you are able to send a message to the Carefree women I will read it at the award show Saturday night. Thanks for the wonderful memories.
My father is an old friend of yours from Broadway He is dying from cancer and it would be wonderful if I could get you in touch with each other . I'm begging please email me
Have been a fan since the Laugh In days! Love it all! Might you ever visit The Ohio River Valley? I live in the Dayton, Ohio area but I am accustomed to travel for a good show.
Lily, I just saw "Grandma and in this world of CGI effects, I want to thank you for your splendid acting that made this character real and believable. When you went off in the coffee shop on at least 3 different levels I'm laughing and cheering for Grandma. Of course the perfect timing of the punch at the clinic was well, perfect. I don't normally write things like this, but I wanted to thank you for the laughs from Edith Ann (don't flinch, Lily, we loved you!) to this wonderful movie. I can only compare this to Steel Magnolias when a movie could make you laugh and cry in the same five minutes. And just to let you know the fun we had watching you, my little brother, back in the day, would go to a pay phone booth and call the operator and do the Ernestine character and the operator would crack up. Then he would unscrew and take the speaker piece out of the receiver. He had a drawer full of them. Thank you again so much for making me laugh. You are the best! Doug
I just finished watching Grandma and such an inspiring movie. Thank you for your laughter and mine, your awesome acting and most of all for being you. Wishing you happiness and joy for all that you have given to us! You are one awesome lady.
A phenomenal performance in Grandma. Ms. Lily you never disappoint or cease to inspire.
After my grand-daughter, Aurora (7 year old), met you at Biltmore, her Mom watched "9 to 5" with her and it has become her favorite movie, to the point that when her 2nd grade teacher asked students to name the person they most admire, she named you. You have surpassed the Disney princesses! Yay!!! (And I was there for your recent Wilmington performance. Terrific! Despite the sound issues . . .)
Hi Lily, I have loved you ever since "Laugh In" and like most, tried to imitate you. I have worked as a CNA in a hospital in Port Charlotte, Fl. for the past 2 years. (other duties there for the past 30 years). I swear I have been told more than 300 times in the past 2 years that I look like you. I even had someone tell me a patient across the hall needed me and that was what they wanted to tell me. Some patients I see often start calling me Lily!!! I hear, "who do you look like"? So I say Lily???? and they jump up, YES!!! I looked around to see if there was a way to tell you I am keeping your name going strong in Southwest Florida and hope you actually get to see this. Thank you so much for continuing to be there for us! Keep going strong, we all love you!!!
Please share with Lily I was so inspired by her powerful quote, I derived a version which begins the Introduction in my recently released Book about our family's now 19-year battle with the VA. My book begins with....“I used to pray for somebody to speak out, stand up and voice the concerns of so many Veterans and their families like ours. Then I realized…..I am somebody.” – derived from quote by Lily Tomlin, Actor My ultimate goal is to speak before the U.S. Senate and House VA Committees and have a film produced.

Dear Lily, I LOVE your TV show with Jane. My sister introduced me to it and we watch it together on Netflix. I don't usually watch TV. This is the first show I've enjoyed in years. I watched the first one about six times - once with my 33 year old daughter, and she'd said, " it has all of life in that one half hour." I am 57 and I hate to say it but I kind of had come to the place where I thought my life was my grand children....and that's all. Suddenly, after watching you two, I feel considerably younger! And I have made some positive changes and have a better outlook on my future. Thank you both. By the way, I can relate to the old hippie part of your character so well! Your show really does make me laugh and cry... it is meaningful. By the way, you can let Jane know that I tried to register for her website, and it said, this will be easy! Hah! I gave up trying. Big hugs to you both- the show is amazing.
Dear Lily Tomlin, your performance at Grace & Frankie is overwhelming. I am so glad that women in the middle of their full power and wisdom can create such films with such a story and texts! even when my english is lacking I can understand every word. Thats great cause I love to watch in english. more films like that please, with feminist topics, issues, played and produced in mainstream with stars like you or adorable jane fonda! give us feminists more of that and encourage younger filmmakers to do so! thanx for all.
Lily I'm a average redneck white male that grew up with you. I just watched you in the movie, Grandma. I can't find the words to describe how much a part of my life you have been. Thanks. Jus sayin.
Just seen Grandma superlative performance a genuine joy to watch. Thanks Lily and the rest of the people involved it will stay with me for a long time.
Lily, just saw Grandma. You really nailed that particular type of gm.I have there grown grands, abs I embarrass the shit out of them most of the time. Not even trying.
Miss Lily, Your work with Miss Fonda on Grace & Frankie is sublime. There is a thin line between tragedy and comedy that you skate in each and every scene. Watching you work is a Master Class in characterization. You've inspired me to keep working as an actor. I had thought of quitting this year. Looking forward to the new season. And if you ever decide to hold a workshop on performing, I want to be front and center. Sincerely. Gerry M. PS: Congratulations on your marriage. I admire your partnership with Miss Jane. My partner Mr. Padilla and I are coming up on 5 years together. Maybe this year, a trip to city hall.
