Thanks Barbara - any names on this list and I'll get a card out as well!

I just want to let everybody that has participated know how wonderful you all are.

Barbara thank you so much for posting this - for your big heart in not wanting anybody left out. Simple humanity never ceases to amaze me. You are a wonderful woman.

wow! i have sent out almost 20 on my own list so far! and this doesn't include but a couple for PTO! i would love to be able to send out that many, but can't this year - perhaps next year.

but i would like to ad Brian. he is a great guy, has never intruded in on my 'space' in any way, and he calls me on HIS dime! he also does Tarot reads (I posted that somewhere here on PTO) but i know that he would enjoy any and all letters/cards!

here is his oontact info:

Brian Bruce # 196970
MCF - Lino Lakes
7525 4th Avenue
Lino Lakes, MN 55014-1006

thanks to all of you who send out all of those cards and letters!

I really hate that I couldn't have added Tim's name earlier, but I just joined the PTO. I think this is a very nice idea for our loved ones! Here is Tim's address:


Mr. Timothy C. Sons #24746-077
Live Oak B
P O Box 4200
Three Rivers, TX 78071

Danielle, thank you so much for sending me the list and for your help on this. If anyone cannot send a card at this time because of the late posting of this, I would TOTALLY understand. Thank you so very much for those of you who can send Timmy a card.

Got it, can you please give me his date of birth so I can update my files? BSS

No problems with adding these names to my list.... I've already sent out cards for everyone that was on the list, but I will sit down this weekend and add these names and get some more cards in the mail.
I'm glad you posted this Barbara, we don't want anyone to miss out!

Thank you all for adding these guys to our list please keep them coming we wouldn't want to miss anyone. Enjay I will be sure and send a special one to Ray S Clark because I am from Douglas AZ, I didn't know anyone had ever been there for any reason. Kmeg I also made my cards from one of the Drawings I received from James Elrod at Pelican Bay (The Deer) you can see it here in the gallery. I also used one of the poems he sent me you can also see it in search under Poems from James and no I am not a used car salesman LOL. Thank you all once again. Love Barbara

I know I am new, but I have a huge favor to ask from anyone who can send a card. My husbands new cellie has no family this Christmas. He recently loss his grandaddy and his wife. And, to top it all off, he just got a 2 year set off on his parole. Johnny says he is doing ok thru the holidays, but I know he would love receiving a few cards. Thank you in advance to all of you who can send one. God Bless you,

Here is his address:

Randall Rankin #636327

I don't feel ok putting my husband's info on here, but as Barb suggested you can pm me for the info. He's having a hard time right now given what we're going thru---plus there's a situation in there that has him on pins and needles. He could use positive messages. Thanks. Sorry I'm so late putting this out. I've debated and debated and was leery.....given his mood the last few days I really hope it helps.....

Deb
