In one of my darkest hours I wrote a letter to Mr Art Linkletter. I said, his movies of Kids Say The Darndest Things was the only thing that brought a smile to my face at that particular time. I shared some of my saddest experiences that I've never felt safe enough to share with anyone. To my shock and surprise a short time later I received a warm heart felt response from him. I would love to have met him but that will have to wait now till I see him in heaven. Mr Art Linkletter, you are a shining star. Thank you for being you! You are deeply missed! Karen

Art Linkletter was one of my childhood heroes. I loved to watch him interview the children on Kids Say the Darndest Things. He had such a gift for bringing out the best in people and was the epitomy of a true Christian. You could tell that he loved and respected all people with whom he came in contact. He will be missed. I wish that there were more people like him in entertainment.

I remember watching Art Linkletter's show on television as a kid and remember how funny I thought he was and how I wished I could be one of the kids he was interviewing! He always made me laugh as a child, as a young adult and now as a retiree. His wisdom, calm demeanor and insight truly made him a well respected gentle man. He is another gem from his generation who will be greatly missed and whose spirit should be emulated by some of today's entertainers.

May God bless the family and give you peace. This man sure could make a lot of people laugh, but now he is probably in heaven smiling. I use to love him talk to the kids and their responses to his questions. Many Smiles Upon You the Family!

I recall laughing at those wonderful kids Art used to interview so adroitly. This when I was just a kid myself.
My life changed dramatically after reading his co-authored book - Make the Rest of Your Life The Best of Your Life, and am attempting to follow its dictates as closely as possible. One of the general suggestions was to pursue your passions. I have done just that - closed my official law office, (maintaining a virtual office) and am Santa 24/7, 365.
Thank you Art for your years of enjoyment and great advice.
Rest well obedient servant!
Santa Bill
