LOGAN HALL

LARRY BROUGHT JIMMY'S CLOTHES AND TOILETRIES TO HIM TONITE....JIMMY CALLED ME ALL EXCITED...HE LOVED EVERYTHING I SENT HIM.....HE SAID I PICKED OUT THE 3 PANTS HE WANTED....HE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT....WELL, I HAD JUST PUT MY HANDS ON THOSE PANTS AS THEY HUNG IN THE CLOSET, AND PULLED THEM OUT.........JIMMY JOKED WITH ME...."ARE YOU REALLY BLIND, FRAN?!"  HE SAID.....WELL, I ALWAYS ANSWER HIM, "WELL THE DOCTOR SAYS I'M BLIND!"..(giggling)

THEY WOULDN'T LET THROUGH A SMALL STUFFED ANIMAL OF "PEEPS," I HAD BOUGHT FOR HIM, BUT HE WAS EXCITED TO GET A ROLL PILLOW, VERY SOFT, FOR UNDER HIS HEAD, IN WHICH I WROTE FRAN AND JIMMY IN A HEART, WITH MAGIC MARKER..........HE GOT THE MAGAZINES......I BOUGHT HIM "GQ," AND SENT HIM "VANITY FAIR".......

HE WAS CHEERFUL AND HAPPY WHEN I SPOKE WITH HIM.......WE TALKED ABOUT 4 TIMES ON THE PHONE. TODAY....THEY ARE COLLECT CALLS, DONE THROUGH THE INSTITUTION, AS THEY ARE BEING RECORDED AND MONITORED....THERE ARE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS AND SESSIONS HE ATTENDS THROUGHOUIT THE DAY, AND IT IS A 6 WEEK ORIENTATION PROCESS HE HAS TO GO THROUGH.

HE WILL MEET WITH HIS COUNSELOR TOMORROW........HE FOUND OUT THAT HE CAN START HIS FURLOUGHS HOME, AFTER I GO THERE TO SEE HIM ON TUESDAY NIGHTS, FOR 4 TIMES. ON FAMILY NIGHT...........SO, I ALREADY SPOKE WITH LARRY, AND HE SAID HE'LL PUT ME IN HIS CAR AND TAKE ME AS SOON AS I CAN START FAMILY NITE VISITS.....WE ARE MOST HAPPY TO DO FAMILY NIGHTS, AS WE  CAN TEACH THE OTHERS A THING OR 2 ABOUT WHAT LOVE IS...WE LIKE TO SET AN EXAMPLE....MANY COUPLES HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF MARRIAGE PROBLEMS, DURING INCARCERATION...THE DIVORCE RATE WHILE IN PRISON IS VERY HIGH.........FOR US IT WAS THE OPPOSITE...WE LOVE EACH OTHER MORE THAN EVER!.......NEWARK IS 1 HOUR 15 MINUTES FROM MY HOUSE...........

TALK TO YOU TOMORROW!.................FRAN

Its has been a long haul for you Fran.  I'm happy that it will soon be over.  After all you have gone through, 6 month should be a breeze.
