"Thank you for sharing your time and your story with us and our guests. You have so much to share, and you make sure that everyone leaves the room feeling better and more empowered than they had. Your humor had the room laughing like we've never seen before, your story touched our hearts and your compassion left us all feeling calmer and of more worth than we had before."

I saw you 6 years ago in Tampa. At the time, I had just completed a probationary sentence for dui. Your show was great and I bought your DVD afterwards. But, the point of your set didn't really hit home with me until a couple years ago. I was pled guilty to my second dui. Following that I was convicted of driving while suspended. At any rate, I've served 8 days in prison as a result, paid countless fines and it reminded me of your show..."First thought wrong.". I know it sounds like I've turned your bit into an excuse, and I promise you that's not the case. Quite the opposite. I've realized that there are simply things I cannot do, places I cannot go and people I have no business seeing. Because I cannot make the right decisions in certain circumstances.
Right now, my life is finally set back on course. I wanted you to know that I appreciate the way you brought home to me the error of my ways, without rubbing my nose in it.
Its a long way to go to say thank you...but thank you.
Dear Mr. Lundholm,
Thank you for your time and your willingness to spread good in this world. The students still talk about you; you have left quite an impression. Again thank you for everything you do for youth.
Mark — I hope you received the group thank you message yesterday. However, it's important that you know that guests, staff and the committee have reported to us that you were the highlight of the program, 100% positive feedback. Not a word about anyone being offended. Your message was powerful and effective. I really hope we can work together again. Let me know if you would like a testimonial and support for your future efforts.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for taking the time to meet with our students and talk to them about your experiences and how to better relate to the students they are trying to help. The PILLARS really enjoyed your program, and we've heard tons of great feedback. It was inspiring and informational, and ultimately, real-life, which is something our students aren't always confronted with in such an honest and down to earth way.

I cannot thank you enough for your talent and your gift to make people laugh. I enjoyed your performance in Williamsburg last night, and laughed until my throat hurt!!!!
Thank you again for all you do...and I will keep a nickel on my desk from now on as a reminder!

I just wanted to say a quick "thank you" for your visit to the Ada County Jail on Saturday. I got the chance to be there for part of your show and really enjoyed it. All of the offenders who were able to be there really heard and appreciated your message. I am very excited for the opportunity for those who have been "sitting on the fence" about change. I believe you have inspired at least some of them to fall the right direction. Much appreciated and well done! Thank you for what you do!
