Hi everybody.

I'm new here and very glad to have found this side . One of my friends sent me a ring and I don't know, how to deal with it. What does he want me to say with such a expensive present? I have no Idea. This ring is beautiful, but I don't know whether I can accept this. What would you girls think?

My man is a GREAT artist and he is ALWAYS sending me cards he made, or posters I can place on my wall, and he has even gave me his tshirt, that I can never part with at night... He reminds me constantly that he is sooo in love with me and he is thinking about me.

As cheesy as it sounds, you gotta look inside yourself.

Is this going to be a 'forever' kinda thing between you guys? or is it just a present?- If this is the one on DR, is he wanting more out of it?

One of my penpals sent me a little jewelry box that someone made out of pencils, but you can't tell and it's really pretty, lined and everything. When I visited him, he asked what I put in it, and I told him it's a prayer box and I put his name in there first. He said he really liked that.

I get beautiful poems, he used to write all the time. I have tons from when we were dating before he was sent to prison Although now I still get the most meaningful ones, they seem to have turned darker which is he's way of dealing with his situation. But they also make me feel sad. knowing that those are his feelings about being on death row and knowing he will probably die there. Unless some miracle happens! Sry it's just hard sometimes

That's sweet. I hope for the best for him and all those on DR. It is sad to read what it does to the family. Welcome to PTO. I hope you find support and friends.

Ok, so now I'm jealous cuz I want a pair of my fiance's boxers...he'll be getting that request this week!

He's sent me paintings that he does, jewelry that he's gotten from other guys on the row, he had his mom send him pics of rings and he picked one out and sent her money to buy it for me....and for mothers day, he sent me my very favorite pink tulips!!! I was totally surprised!!!

But the very best thing that he's ever given me is....his heart.

My pal always sends a smiley face on a post-it note for my partner. It's always at the end of the letter where he signs off. Always makes us smile.

I just got gold diamond earrings for my birthday, I've gotten a teddy bear, tons of cards he makes himself, picture frames, pictures to hang he makes for my kids with their favorite character, t-shirt, poems on beautiful colored paper with designs on them.... That's all I can think of off the top of my head. His family also sends me and have given me and my kids things... He's the sweetest thing ever and his family is absolutely wonderful

I got a lot of gifts come my way. I got a decorative box that took him 4 months to make and it shows. It's so beautifully made. I have necklaces, bracelets, cards, drawings a dream catcher. He just likes making me gifts. It's very sweet and kind of him. I also get creative writing like poems and jokes too. He painted me a picture using cool aid drink powder too. They can be so creative with so little too.

He recently sent a picture of a tattoo he has of my name. Its a band around his bicep. He had it done 12 years ago and even though its a bit faded it still takes my breath away. Otherwise I don't think there is much he can send from death row. He sends cards though.

Well, my first entry here!

I am richly blessed with my two pals!
One is a talented Artist. He sent me many cards and some drawings. He also sent me a handcrafted cross made of plastic bag and a red wire, and he also sent me some small Kool-Aid-bags and coffe and tea - for tasting DR!
My other pal is not an artist but he is writing poems and on X-mas he sent me a BIG parcel with large-scale-paintings painted by his cell neighbour. This pal also sent me his family fotos to keep them in my house.

I send them a lot of fotos, drawings from my children, concert programs when we're playing a concert.

Sure, I put the 3 UGLY drawings in the trash because itīs to expensice to send this trash back.

DAMN, you are sooooooooooooooo rude!!!
If you donīt appreciate the paintings of your penpal, you really ainīt a good friend!!! SHAME ON YOU to throw the drawings away !!!
And by the way, my husband who is currently on FED D/R is an amazing talented artist, sending me a lot of drawings and paintings which are worth to be sold for an huge ammount, and itīs not just about birds, animals or whatsoever!
And even if he would send me those, and if they would might not look good enough to sell them - thatīs something coming from his heart!
I could NEVER throw them away!!!

Twin I did see some your husband's work online and he is very talented. I took a look at his case and noticed some of his art. You are right though--it is all priceless to those of us that care.

Michael sends me cards from the commisary all the time, but he also has someone in his dorm that makes the most beautiful hand drawn cards I've ever seen. I get those pretty often too.

He sends me hand made cards that are beautiful too me. Even if others thought they were ugly I would treasure them, but they are beautiful. The best thing he gives me though is strength, and he doesn't even know he is giving it to me. When I have a bad day, sort of a poor me type day, I think of him on death row, and the strength I get from that to pick myself up dust myself off, and realize I have to be better not just for me but for him. He is a human being that is loved, and deserves to be loved no matter what got him there, he is in my heart and on my mind everyday. Oh and he is a great poet too

Since I last posted my soon to be husband proposed in the vi room with a beautiful diamond ring and he recently sent me flowers at work too. Every holiday, birthdays for both me and my babies he sends something. He's just lovely.
