Please don’t trip, there is no need to apologize. It’s I that is sorry to burden you w/something as pitty [sic] as a photo. It’s just they are $2.50 a pic. and after being in so long I have lost all family support.
I am so glad that people enjoy my writings. I can’t begin to thank you for giving me a voice. The time you are investing in us is something many of us don’t have, and I don’t have the words to say thank you. I am telling everyone of the supportive web site you have developed. I am currently working on facts on why “The 2ed Chance Parole” program would be beneficial to the Maine tax payer [sic]. Also if you’d like I can enclose newspaper clippings on the shananigins [sic] that have been going on here. Such as 3 deaths in the past 2 yrs. and the new Commissioner’s (Mr. J. Ponte) moves on saving money by eliminating over paid positions. San Quiten [sic] State Prison; gangs, murders and drug activite [sic], one deputy Warden. Maine State Prison w/no gangs, no daily homicides and we have 5 deputy wardens. Mr. Ponte is a man who is saving Maine people money. Maine can not [sic] afford to lose this commissioner when Gov. Lapage [sic] leaves office.
Anyway I will put something together that touches all these issues. Thank you for staying in touch w/me, and sending the photo. Until next time Arrivederci Bambina.
Stay positive and forever young!
Note from Sophie: Johnny sent the picture he refers to so I could post it with his first blog. When I tried to return it, I put it with some other mail for him, which due to my own error (white-out) was returned. In the meantime, Johnny wrote asking where it was. It took me almost a month to get his picture back to him but he finally has it in his possession.
