I remember the pictures and I smile. I fell in love with the most beautiful man in the world. I fell in love with the handwriting and all the phone calls and the deep voice. I am sure many more women did the same. You are awesome and I really am saddened to know that you have spent so much of your young life behind bars. But you are in my heart and will always be. I was telling a friend about you just now and showed her those pictures. I also found more information about you on the Mugshot website. I now have a better picture of who you are and the period of incaceration that is forthcoming. But you will always be in my heart; for I believe each one of us who have corresponded with you hold a place in your heart. Though you may have a significant other, our spirits will always be a part of you. Love You, Ellen

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post.

Beautiful letter. I agree there is so much more to people then judgements people make. It is important for people to realize the importance of listening to one another and learning about each other. We may not always be what we appear on the outside. Judgements and stereotypes are a problem in todays society. Than you for writing and please continue to do so! Good luck.
