I meet both Kelly and Jon at the 2000 St. Judes Benefit in NYC. I had went and seen Jon once before in the early
80's when he was first starting out on the show at my local mall in Columbus, Ohio.
I remember thinking how much I would love to meet Jon again when I noticed him on the other side of the room.
I was really excited and went directly over to meet him. He was dressed in a suit looking so suave drinking some wine
and chatting with Kelly and others.
When I first approached Jon he was so shy and I shook his hand and told him I had seen him before and he said, I am sorry,
I don't remember. I said, well, that was so long ago. He was very sweet and I told him how much I loved Holden
and that I had been watching the show for many years. I also told him he was wonderful and he smiled and said thank
you. Then I asked if I could have my picture taken with him and he said yes and it was a really great pic too.
I said thanks and left because there were many happy fans waiting their turn.
Next I turned to Kelly who standing there near Jon greeting her own fans. She is so much more beautiful in person.
I waited my turn and told her how happy I was to meet her and how much I loved her Jon as a couple. She was very gracious
and thanked me for being so nice. I also told her I loved her on the show and I had watched for many years. Then
I asked for a pic and she said yes, so we got a very nice pic together. She was also wearing this false hairpiece
which looked so cool on her.
Kelly and Jon shined that night. They are a very nice, handsome, wonderful couple and I am so happy I got to meet
