some good news

I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH JIMMY...HE CALLED AT 11:45 pm , JUST AT THE TIME WE WERE MARRIED, 5 YEARS AGO.  HE HAS BEEN CALLING ME ALL DAY, WISHING ME A HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

LAST NIGHT, HIS PAROLE OFFICER CALLED HIM INTO HIS OFFICE.  IT SEEMS JIMMY WILL FINALLY BE TRANSFERED TO THE OTHER HALF-WAY HOUSE...VOA, IN CAMDEN, NJ.  WE ARE VERY HAPPY, AS HE WILL BE CLOSER HOME, AND CAN RETURN TO HIS JOB.  IT SEEMS BY NEXT FRIDAY, HE WILL BE TRANSFERRED....SO, THAT IS GOOD NEWS...

THE BAD NEWS IS, THAT LARRY CANNOT TAKE ME TO SEE JIMMY THIS TUESDAY...HE IS BUSY WITH HIS JOB ALL WEEK, DELIVERING FURNITURE, AS HE OWNS A FURNITURE STORE.....SO THAT IS THAT....SINCE JIMMY HAS BEEN WITHIN THE PRISON SYSTEM, THE ONLY THING THAT I HAVE LEARNED TO PLAN IN LIFE, IS "TO SIMPLY PLAN TO BE DISAPPOINTED."...........YES, IF YOU PLAN TO BE LET DOWN, THEN IT HURTS LESS.......SIMPLY PUT.

AND SO, ON THAT NOTE, I WILL GO TO BED SOON, AND JIMMY WILL TRY TO CALL ME ONE LAST TIME TONIGHT, AT 1 AM...THE LAST CALL OF THE NIGHT..................FRAN

That's great news Fran...it's too bad that Larry cannot take you though...I can't wait for this all to be over for you both and you can be together.

Fran, have you thought about calling your local church and asking them for help? Especially since you are disabled. They might be able to help you get a ride to go see Jimmy, so you can get these 6 visits over with and he can come home. I know in my city, they can help out with rides or refer you to someone who can help you with rides. It is worth a shot and what is the worst they can do? Tell you no we can't help. There are many resources out there for people who need help. Check it out Fran, like I said the worst they can do is say no. The best is that they can help you get to the family meetings, give it a shot Fran, it sure can't hurt. Take care, I am keeping you both in my prayers.
