  • jill faren phelps i hope your show does the right thing and honor her and i dont mean just words. you need to honor her on this show . dont just say a few words after a regular show. that is not enough. you need to have a show to honor her with clips from all the yrs she has been on there. the fans need to see it and say good bye also. it would be the only and right thing to do.
