Dear Between the Bars....
Please submit when it's available to you. Let me say hello to my friend, Fr. John. I received your blessing on May 15 of $25.00. It was put to hygiene and stationary. They have restricted us by this COVID-19. A minimal of $15 & $35 spends but it's also limiting us on envelopes to only $15. Of course, I don't write that many as I once did. I've gotten on cellpals.com at $30 site. Its the duration of my sentence which is awesome. See I am not rich, so to have an infinity type site is the best.
COVID-19 has reached this farm. It has infected inmates, but last month we got a mouth swab, sadly to report the cellie I once had was infected. When I found out, I thanked Jesus. See he refused not only temp checks, but he also didn't cover his mouth or nose as he coughed or sneezed and didn't wash his hands either. I've had 4 cell mates since being on Robertson Unit. Most say I'm lucky. I tell them it's not luck...it's a blessing. See the Lord has given me a lot of blessings, yes I pray and I've even prayed by Rosary! If you don't pray then go through life thinking its just luck, but let me give you an example of luck vs. blessings.
When I was on death row, I got in a Norway pen pal. She asked if I'm writing to many, please give my address to someone else. I gave her to my ex-cellie. I found out her dad owned 15 super-malls that estimated $20 million. She was given 3 of them. Her name is Alexandra Engster. She hired Davie a lawyer who got him a 80 year sentence, it was back in 2001. Now years later, I ran into him at John Sealy in Galveston Hospital. I barely recognized him. We talked and he is on another farm.
I carry a Rosary with me, I walk the bowling alleys as we call the corridors here and I say Hail Mary's. The Lord's word and even ministries. See I know it's not just luck. It's getting hot here, I am well, doing as I always, let me hear from you. Take care, stay safe, God bless. Guy

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post. I enjoyed reading your story as I totally agree with your post. God has a way of working his miracles every day when you believe in him. I am glad I was able to transcribe your story to share with others.
