Hello:

I have always enjoyed you as an actress. Lecy Goranson always states that you and her are very close friends off the set. During the 20+ years Roseanne wasn't on the air, did you keep up the friendship with her? I know that you did a short TV series in NY around 2001 or so. She was living in NY at the time - I wonder whether the 2 of you met up during that time.
