    Thank you for featuring these two wonderful videos..have watched them so many times but, somehow, they always seem new. Jerry Lewis was so sweet and appreciative of Clay and of his fans. Beautiful!

    Clay's performance on the Miss America pageant was priceless; a stellar one no one can ever hope to outdo. No wonder we love him so much.

    Again, thanks...and, yes, three years ago ...but feels like only yesterday.

    Thanks for reminding me how wonderful these past 3 years have been. That Jerry Lewis video was so great to revisit.
