Hey Y'all,

It's been some time since I last wrote, but I'm back. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Dat, but this will be the first one since my mom passed away. That was on the 7th of November, and due to my being incarcerated I was not able to attend the funeral, or be there to help support the rest of my family. I've been waiting to get some mail from them but nothing has showed up. I have been worried about them and just wanting to hear anything to ease the tension I've been feeling. I just finished talking to my cellie about needing to hear from someone, and five minutes later I received a letter containing comments posted on my blog. The words my step sister told me were few, but they were exactly what I was needing to hear. Thank you Laura!
Be sure to let your loved ones know what they mean to you, and don't wait until tomorrow because it may not get here. I hope all of you have a great holiday season.

Blessed be,
Eric Z. Youngblood

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post. My first transcription ever! I was really touched by your concern about your family. My best friend's mother recently died, and I've been doing my best to support her. I hope that you also find the support that you need.

Hey Eric,

Well for some reason I decided to Google your name and I came across this site. I have written you several letters and will try to continue to write several each week. Your family is in my prayers and I try and send Kattie a text message every now and then. You will be hearing from me soon, I just sent a couple letters in the mail and I have one more to send off today (feb 7th).

Take care and love ya lots!!
