Default Special Request - Long timer in need of some cheer

One of my 'guys' (Sir Will) just got off the phone to me, and he spent most of his time telling me about one of the guys that's where he's at....he could really, REALLY do with some PTO cheer/love/support/encouragement...and as Sir Will knows all about our little CV network, he asked me to please see if I can get some cards for his friend.

Apparently another of their friends took his own life a couple of weeks ago, and now Will's friend is talking about joining him....and if I can prevent that from happening, then I will.

If anyone can spare a card, and some encouraging words, to let this guy know there's people out here who care about him....he basically has no one, as both his parents are now deceased and I'm not sure if there's siblings or not. He's been down since 1976 so the world out here has drastically changed, so let's make him feel like it's not such a big bad world out here.

Thanks in advance, and I know Will would say so too.
Hugs
Naomi

Hi Naomi,

O I am sorry! I hope I did it right this time and I am able to receive your info so I can send a nice envelope.

No swap needed, since I just wrote someone in hoping to become penpals. I didn't have penpals for a while and just started again this year.

Thanks again and sorry for the trouble
Jessica aka Jips

Thanks so much, I'm so happy that he's going to get so many cards and/or letters...if you want to write to him and not just send a card, you have my pre-approval to do so!!! He'd also be on Jpay if you want to write to him that way

I"ve just pm'd his details to all who have asked for it. It's going to be such a new world when he gets out as he's missed the introduction of the internet and won't have seen things like google, although he has seen stuff on tv, it's different to actually use something than just see it....ATM's is something else he wouldn't have used....it blows my mind how much he'll have to get used to when he gets out....and while he's been in there, he's lost so much. Thanks again for being the troops to back a request up when you're all needed.

Hugs
Naomi
