Dear Ed and Angela [Ed’s assistant],
I thought I would like to thank all those who bring light to my days and joy to my life. At the top of the list I have several I must speak of, namely you. That’s right, Ed Rosenthal and Angela. Ed sends me books, book money, and love often. I cannot thank the two of you enough.
Also, the Landis Prison Outreach Program is wonderful. Steph, Tom, Jessica and the others are doing so much to help all the POWs.
Vanessa Nelson is a Godsend, sending me love and all the news weekly. Craig and Jason of Hello Jazz Productions [who have been working on a documentary] about the ministry and what we tried to do (7 years of filming). Ready to go to Sundance I hope.
Erica as always has helped endlessly, but the one I must thank the most is my wife Linda who has refused to let the government win. She has used this to make our love and relationship bigger and better. She is hope, love and inspiration all in one wonderful package.
I am truly blessed to have you all and so many others in my life that care for and about me. I am truly humbled by the love and support Linda and I received from so very many people. Thank you for giving me a way to express my thoughts and thanks.
Please write soon.
“I AM RASTAFARI”
“LOVE ONE ANOTHER”
PS: I am sorry I didn’t name all who help but will try to get them all.
