Hi...Like others I'm new to this. About a year ago, I found my first love...we were together for 11 years....in 1979 things fell apart and we went our separate ways....a year ago, I found him broken and bleeding in MCCX. First degree Murder, in the event of a kidnapping. Drug dealer that was selling crack to his step daughter, the drug dealer attacked him with a knife. I've read everything about this case and it was a clear case of self defense...but since he tied the guy up...kidnapping...when he left the house that night...guy was fine, drugs all over the house...next morning...cops come....only drug residue found, drug dealer dead. I know you're not suppose to blame the victim, but this guy had 8 page rap sheet....sold and busted for EVERY drug known to man.
Anyway...I'm here now, we're still in love 30 years later. He was alone until I found him, family disowned him...all our friends disappeared. He writes me almost every day. I live and die by the USPS. We try very hard to keep the phone calls down, $40 for 30 minutes is crazy. We're going to be married as soon as the TDOC approves the application. I live in Texas because he wants me close to my kids....most unselfish man I know.
I've started to fight...he's awaiting yet another appeal (2 years in a pile in Judge Thomas Phillips court). His original conviction in Sevier County, the most corrupt county in tn. Seviercorruption.com Because of that he's actually afraid for me to come to TN. I have a big mouth, a smart brain and I know how to use both...GOD blessed me. I don't give a crap, I'll take a body guard to marry him if necessary. Anybody got a spare couch I can crash ON !!!!!
I look forward to joining these conversations....my family is very supportive because he was a part of our lives for so long. I'm so excited to FINALLY be his wife. I know that I've put myself in a horrible situation, but for the first time in my life I am at peace with the love of my life.
Monday....I had to call the prison and tell him his mom died....four months ago. I called his sister to reconnect and found out. Our relationship is based on truth so I had to tell him. I didn't feel right telling him in a letter, so I called. I worked for Red Cross for 20 years, when someone dies, call chaplain. Still havent gotten the letter yet, damn holidays...telling me how he is. I sent him phone credits, but they haven't been posted yet. So needless to say, I'm going a bit nuts.
Bills faith is strong, has been since he was a kid....but he is so tired of fighting. At least now, he's not alone. Please Pray for a speedy resolution to this horrible nightmare and for his continued strength. I gotta get him outta there !!!
Thanks for listening....I look forward to meeting you all - Pamela
Hi - I'm in texas too...my finance is in Morgan County Correctional Center TN...haven't seen him in 30 years !!!! Read my intro...if you want to talk, I've done lots of research in the last year. He writes almost every day....we're closer than we've ever been. He doesn't want me to visit yet, because he's still having issues with the county jail he was in...afraid I might get hurt in TN. I'm friends with Dog, Duane Chapman...might have to ask him to accompany me. I'm going after the first of the year...so we can be married. Send me a note....I'll talk anytime. Bless you - Pamela
