Birthdays:

Robert B. – Chillicothe, OH (OP – Mellyme1418) – he said he is sorry he cannot thank each PTO member personally, but he cannot afford the postage. He does, however, appreciate every birthday card and all PTO mail received.

Leroy G. – Beeville, TX (OP – Mandi Licious) – Leroy invited me to continue writing. Unfortunately, I haven’t the time right now. Mandi – would you send a BIG thank you to Leroy for me and let him know his was the longest letter I’ve ever read and received it with much appreciation.

Vincent M. – Navasota, TX (OP – #1AndOnly) – he remarked how Shawn and Shari have been taking good care of him.


Valentine’s Day:

Joshua B. – Boise, ID (OP – Tivia) – sent a brief thank you card with a Seattle folk link referral. (sweet)

Marvin J. – Chillicothe, OH (OP – BJWCA) Marvin thanked me again for adding him to the mail swaps. He’s been enjoying the extra mail. He recently received a couple of more cards (likely for St. Patrick’s Day) and asked me to thank Barbara and Niki. Thank you ladies .

Joshua K. – Menard, IL (OP – Saralg) Joshua said that Sara is a kind woman and is trying to help him find a companion/pen–pal. Would the OP thank Joshua on my behalf. Unfortunately I cannot take on more pen–pals - not at this time.

Brian W. – Cuero, TX (OP – Frozen Female) – this was Brian’s second thank you and he is looking for a pen–friend. Would the OP thank Brian on my behalf and share that I’m simply not in a position to take on more pen–friends.

St. Patrick’s Day:

Robert R. .- Manson, NC (OP – BJWCA) – was referred to by a penpal of mine and recently added to the mail swaps. If you are participating in the Easter Swap and Robert is added to your list, please extend a warm welcome to this new recipient (with my thanks )

Rory G. – Green Bay, WI (OP – #1AndOnly) – Rory said “I love the mail and I love the attention paid to me from PTO”

Kenneth C. – Sparta, GA (OP – Melandunewen) – Kenneth said...”When I lost my family I thought that was the end of my world – then came along PTO with loving people”

Kenneth H. – Waynesburg, PA – Kenneth was on the January execution list, received a stay, has enjoyed the PTO mail, and welcomes any PTO member willing to write to him.

John F. – White Deer, PA (OP – #1AndOnly) – he says he is thankful for the PTO members time and care.

Condolences:

Brett H. – Chillicothe, OH (OP – JodyAnnShaw) – “..... all the mail form PTO was great. Just knowing people care does help, and a stack of mail, even know the sad reason for the mail, still helps brighten even the darkest days – even if just a bit. And sometimes just that little bit makes a world of difference. So thank you to you and everyone at PTO.”

Encouragement:

Everett B. – Florence, CO (OP – 4Mark) – PTO is new to Everett and he’s excited to share what we do with his family. He’s also lonely and looking for pen friends if anyone is interested please run it by 4Mark.

I received a nice letter from Leroy G. in Tx. (OP Mandi). I would like to send him a card now and then if it's okay.

He wanted to thank you, Mandi, for keeping him in your thoughts and putting him on the list.

If anyone would like a penpal, he is hoping for one. He will def write you! He is very lonely and locked up alone 23/7.

My hubby Mike Taylor, SC said thank you so much to Kirsty and Bonnie for the St Patty's Day cards. He said he can always count on you 2! That's all he's gotten so far, but I'm sure he'll get more.
Also anyone who got a reply back from Michael Daeger, SC has an ok from me to reply when you would like. He would really like a penpal! He keeps asking my hubby to ask me to find him one! I'm trying! LOL

Hey ladies. Well I got a letter from Eric in FL today!!! I am asking him for names in my return letter cuz he didn't give me any yet but I will quote one thing he said then hopefully he will give me names next time! He says (and I quote) "They just did mail call.WOW you really blow my mind. All the mail I am receiving from people all over the world. Lori your friends are awesome. Thank you for your kind heart!" So until he sends me names, I want to thank everyone who has sent Eric a card or whatever you sent him. He sounded so much better than that letter I got from him almost a month ago!!

Jody I already sent you a PM, but I wanted to post here as well so that everyone who doesn't already know will now know what a very special friend you are. The card you sent me was beautiful and what you wrote to me inside was very thoughtful and touching (Made me tear up a little) and it meant a lot to me. It couldn't have come at a better time. With all of the crap that has happened to me in the last 3 weeks, between the motorcycle crash, fractured skull, my car getting stolen, tax refund hijacked, broken up relationship, and fair weather friends making me feel unwelcome, you put a smile on my face that hasn't been there for a while, and that's coming from the girl that people say smiles "too much" even when it's inappropriate. So thank you again for making me smile today :hug:
