Bobby Loves hearing From You!
I liked how you used Planets for this. I'm very fond of space. My grandma has cancer so I know how it feels for the boy. I hope the Corona virus isn't affecting how you do the giant letter this year. Sincerely, L, age 9
Note to you. Hi we love what you did. We can't wait for next year to see a new one. We love that you do every year and we are a big fan of your work. Love your neighbors, the P. Family
Dear Bobby (and Mr. McFluffins, This sounds like a beautiful experience. Thank you for sharing it with us. We drove by and stopped to read your Giant Letter...glad we did. One of us always wondered when we were probably around your age, if trees were just giant hair follicles on a giant's head. Stay curious. Questioning everything is fun and it holds a lot of beautiful answers too. P.S. Olive Garden is great. Happy Holidays, Admiring strangers, J & S
"That almost made me cry. That was truly beautiful and definitely put some heart into my day reminding me to slow down and cherish every little thing. Much love"
"Man was not expecting the letter to say that s##t! Wow. And then find out Bobby aint even a real boy! You F###in got me man! Bravo to you! - B"
"11-15-2020 We look forward to reading the letter every year! Thank you for sharing with your neighbors. My dad died of lung cancer when I was 28. I know what Bobby feels. Happy Thanksgiving. Stay safe. - D
"Hi! I love this so much! Even tho I couldn't understand any of it. It's awesome and inspiring to have something like this. Bless yall hearts. Thank you for this. Happy Christmas!"
"Hey I enjoyed the letter. Thank you. More people should be self-aware like Bobby. - C"
"Hello, yes this made me cry (happy tears). I love the solar system and all things space really. Thank you!"
"Hello, I am a retired school teacher. My daughter brought my grand-baby and I by to see this, it is the most ingenious thing that I have seen in a long time. It should be seen on KEYE. That is so Great! Amen. A+"
"This sure did [move me]!! I don't regularly read fiction/poetry (bah humbug) but this letter made me think more about the human condition outside of my own bubble. I was thinking most about the phrases describing the cancer cells as 'friendly cells' who just happen to be killing a human. I never thought of it that way. It makes me think about "spiritual cancer" that rots away our hearts/minds/souls, whatever-you-call-it. It can be deceiving (in a sense that you don't notice it) and sometimes we actually enjoy/relish it, but it ruins us. I love the art installations -- thank you for lighting up this dreary year of 2020 with just something fun/thoughtful to look upon! - C"
"This was so cute! It made me feel like a tiny little molecule in this big world. Happy stargazing."

"I loved the Earth and the book it looked like it was floteing." [included drawing of the Volvox in a young child's handwriting]
"How cool to see a giant letter! Bobby has a very unique perspective on the world."

"I like it i was microscopic." [Written in young child's handwriting]
"Love this. Each and every one of us is only a SMALL part of this universe. Let's do our best to enjoy each other. Thank you for this."

"D loves the softness of the book cover."

"Hi! What a wonderful display! As a firm believer in science, this is so very awesome! Especially in this time... Just great! Thanks! - H"
"The imagination of a child reminds us how little we actually know and inspires awe and excitement in me. - AG"
"So beautiful. Thank you very much. Great work."
"I hope your telescope was fixed (M. Age six)"
"I love the earth. It looks so realistic I feel like I can just reach out and grab it. You're always so creative with the letters and designs." [Includes a drawing of the installation]
This is awesome! I will be bringing my children by later. Really creative.
"Such a beautiful letter. Thank you for sharing this."
"Hi, I've been having a hard time lately. Not much makes sense . But I have hope. I was driving with no sense of direction, just listening to music and found this -- a light in the darkness -- a reminder that human creativity is a gift that can help us all feel a bit less alone. LOVE. CONNECTION. CREATIVITY. FAITH. HOPE. LOVE. We're all on this planet together. Much love. - BL"

"Dear Bobby this is cool and like wow 1000/10"
"Very cute! Love the confetti and the giant piece of pie! I hope you do this again next year! <3 C"
"Dear Bobby, you are so strong and so full of love. Never lose that love and healing spirit you have inside you. The world is wild, but you've already got so much right! Much love, A"
