I loved your cover story about Princess Kate traveling to New Zealand with Prince William and 9-month-old Prince George, who is the cutest baby ever! I enjoyed reading about all the essentials she needed for the trip. It really takes a village to raise a future king!

HOLLYWOOD AT HOME
Jaclyn Smith is one of my favorite actresses. I grew up watching her on Charlie’s Angels. When I saw that you included her in your Hollywood at Home feature, I gasped with joy. Her Georgian colonial house is so chic and divine.
I admire Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba for her dedication to animals. I love that she shares her home with seven pets that include rescue dogs. She makes the world a better place.
THE DUGGAR FAMILY
Congrats to reality star Jill Duggar for getting engaged. It’s inspiring to read about her no-hand-holding relationship with her now fiancé. Her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, who star on TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting, have instilled wise values. If every parent raised their children the way they do, the world would be a better place.
Mickey Rooney, who passed away on April 6 at the age of 93, was one of the most amazing performers. The fact that his acting career spanned more than 85 years illustrates that he was one of a kind. He will be missed.

I’m glad to read that actress Amanda Bynes is doing much better after experiencing a public breakdown last year. I have faith that she will continue to improve. I am rooting for her!

Thanks for interviewing Tony winner and Kinky Boots star Billy Porter. I loved reading about his favorite Broadway tunes.

Let’s give Kirstie a break for her weight struggles. She has always been—and still is—a witty, talented woman who has so much more depth to her than her size. I grew up watching her. No matter what her size is, I’ve enjoyed her in every role.
In our April 21 tribute to actor Mickey Rooney, we misidentified the 1941 film Babes on Broadway. We regret the error.
Doctor Found Dead
In our Feb. 10, 2014, issue we covered the disappearance of Teleka Patrick, a 30-year-old psychiatry resident at Western Michigan University’s School of Medicine, who went missing in December 2013. Sadly, on April 9 police confirmed that a body found in Indiana’s Lake Charles has been identified as Patrick. Authorities believe she may have wandered into the lake after going to seek help for a flat tire. While Kalamazoo County sheriff Richard Fuller said that it appears Patrick accidently drowned, the official cause of death is pending. “Teleka had a passion and zest for life,” her family said on Facebook. “We will love her forever.”
