Hi Kelli,
I am so thrilled that you stay for Season 16. I love your character and your talent and charisma shines through every line. Nervous about the finale.
I hope so much that you received the chocolate for your birthday ! It meant so much to me to send you something for your Bday. Sorry that I keep asking you if you received it, but I wasn't sure where to send it, so I had it delivered to the studio at Chelsea Piers. Your acting is so amazing in every show.
Your big fan,
Corinne Pina
