Boom Boom Washibton was really cool.

Lisa DunnJun 17, 2011

I love Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs;I always have.. since Cooley High, Welcome Back Kotter, when he played Joe Jackson and every other show I've had the chance to see. I've always noticed what a handsome and talented man he is. He's a real eye catcher.. It would be nice to meet him I'd love to spend a evening with him, talking and laughing really enjoying his company, sharing stories and talking about what his interest are and future goals in the business. I'd love to know what he's doing. His energy tells me that he's a pretty cool guy.

but his response was " don't nobody wanna see that n*gga!" i was so hurt, i said a few choice words and turned to walk away. being faced with my mom and daughter finally making it outside in the rain. mama could see the disappointment on my face and tears streaming down my face blending with the raindrops. i was still fussing as i slowly walked away from the bus. then i noticed my daughter was doing a pointing motion towards the bus by now the rain was dropping a bit faster, i thought she was pointing to alert me of aj johnson comming for trouble due to the things i said to him.

kaye upchurchJun 12, 2011

out the door i bolted i made my way soon as the last actor boarded i leaned in the bus and A.J Johnson was in the first seat,, i asked if he' would tell you your biggest fan was out side to see you,

kaye upchurchJun 12, 2011

i finally met you at a play in davenport iowa, i remember after the play the writer was signing autographs i said to him. ( with tears in my eyes " could you tell lawrence k is his biggest fan" he gently leaned and whispered " stop crying, if you ease down the hall out that back door you could see lawrence getting on the bus" before i knew it i flew down the hall, leaving my dear mama and daughter behind,

LaVernMay 4, 2011

Lawrence, You are a very husband man. I feel in love with you with I was a little girl watching Cooley High at the movies. It's now 2011 and I am truly not a little girl any more. I still find you to be extremely handsome.

VivianJan 12, 2011

I was first introduced to your work on Welcome Back, Kotter. I loved your work as Freddie. I`m a Thespian at heart and wish that I could meet you. Loved Cooly High as well. I know that you must have recently been in The Preacher`s Kid. Wow! You`re the bomb, Lawrence!

Paula MJun 28, 2010
