Default Hi Everyone! I am new to the Forum

Hi everyone! I am new to the forum! My fiancé is currently in Big Sandy and I am also stressed out about this Lockdown. I find comfort in knowing that I am not the only one feeling this way.

Welcome to Prison Talk. Lockdowns are hard on everyone, the prisoners who are kept in their cells, and their family members too. I hope it ends quickly, although this one is in response to the murder of an inmate so it is very serious.

Wow! That’s is devastating! I just read up on it in the previous threads! I am extremely sorry for the loss of their loved one. This has to be extremely difficult for them. I pray that God gives them comfort and strength to get through this.

Hi! And welcome. From the letters I’ve received from my LO since they’ve been on lockdown they are being told that they are expected to be on lockdown until January 1st.

So I finally got a letter!!! It was dated the 18th, post marked the 19th and I received it yesterday. I'm in southern California so that hopefully gives everyone an idea how long the mail takes this time of year. My sister who i s in western Kentucky received her letter from him within one day of him sending it. I'm just glad I finally got one

Thank you! I called today and they said they should be off of lockdown by the 1st as well. We’ve been writing each other every single day.

Thank you so much. We are both truly excited to get married even though he’s incarcerated. Neither one of us know the process but we plan to contact his counselor after the new year.
