Mailing addresses for Greg, Megan, and Michael

Dear friends,

Ralph got to visit both Michael and Greg, and passes on this news:

both mike and greg are well. mike reported getting a letter from kathy and he is clearly ready for mail. he suggests people use his correctly spelled last name and the jail mispelled name and hyphenate them. walli-walley. he is hoping to correct the jail spelling. whether or not that happens, or whether the double spelling is necessary is unclear. however, kathy’s letter was addressed that way and got through, so…

mike was in fine spirits, was interested to hear about media coverage of the trial, said he is doing fine, and expects to go to ocilla any day. he had a pre-sentencing interview, about 20 minutes he said, and has had a couple visits from chris irwin, his lawyer. he doesn’t get to see greg. i conveyed to him how wonderful his testimony in court was and how proud we all are of him.

greg was also in good spirits, laughed several times.

And that is the news from the Knox County Detention Center!  Ralph was not able to visit Sr. Megan, who is at the Knox County Jail (separate facility); Shelley will be visiting her this weekend.

Here are the addresses of the three.  Sending them mail is one of the best things we can do at this time — let’s all show them that we are thinking of them, and that we’re grateful for their action and witness!!   Please note the jail (mis)spelling of Michael’s name.

Important tips on sending mail: letters and cards are okay as long as they are just paper. Photos are also okay if they are appropriate. Nothing else may be sent in, not stamps or staples or paper clips.  Make sure to write a full return address on envelopes.  These addresses will change if/when the three are sent to Ocilla.  We will post the new addresses when that change occurs.

Also — Greg’s birthday is tomorrow, May 18th.  Consider sending him a birthday card!
