    No matter how much times I watched this movie, it just gets better and better. Jonathon, you did a great job in filling Gilbert's role, and Megan did awesome as Anne to. You guys really made the story come alive, God bless you!

    I am not able to say that i love you or sth like that becouse I don't know your personality. I saw all movies in which you took part, there were great but I feel in some moments that you didn't give at your play everything .So my question is ... Do you like being an actor ?!I think that you are an intersting person with lot;s of attention to small things! am I right ?! I wish i could meet you some day or create an conversation!:)
