  1. My husband and I both have cancer. I did respond but all I wrote was my name, which they already had, and told them that plus listed all the charities with which “I” was involved, no financial information.
    It comes constantly so, to bide the time, I sometimes tell them how I assist with the charities (hoping to embarrass them).
    I describe in detail about how I went to the Ohio home for the mentally ill and insane to entertain. The party and those fit to be among a crowd, we had a carnival on the premises.
    I, however felt sorry for those not able to attend and asked to be allowed to visit inside. Escorted by two men, I, dressed as a clown, went from one ward to another performing tricks and telling stories.
    Although I was well received by some, not everyone was responsive.
    This one guy sat with his back to me, listening, so when everyone vacated the room, he turned around before we left and addressed the guards first. “I want to see the show too. Don’t take her away.”
    I stayed and, afterwards he smiled and said, “Will you visit again? Please?”

    I was told he hadn’t spoke or been sociable for months so, “Yes, I’ll make a special trip just to see you now and again.”

    “As you?”

    “You don’t like me being a clown?”

    “I didn’t say that, did I?”

    No, you didn’t.

    I simply haven’t seen a woman, other than the nurses here, who would give me the time of day in years. I think you and I could simply talk.”

    “I’ll ask the desk if it’s okay. If so, I will come as myself. Okay?”

    It wasn’t allowed. I asked THEM to tell him that I tried. It’s important that “I” keep my word always. Otherwise, it means nothing.

    However, I asked if I could write to him. That was acceptable but they told me NOT to promise anything, to not give any personal information and, since he had killed someone, to get a P.O. Box first.
    It was a long time getting an answer but finally …. “You write good. Still prefer personal visits to writing letters but, no one has ever written to me. Thank you!
