According to TerranceI am a nonviolent first-time drug offender currently serving LIFE for conspiracy.      While selling drugs I never placed any credence on the fact that I may miss life events and milestones of my children, my parents, particularly my daughter being a top line nurse.  My milestones of my children, my parents, particularly my daughter being a top line nurse.  My family is good about sending me photos of these events; but not being there brings great sadness and remorse in my heart.  While photos & cards are nice, it can never fill the void left in my heart.

I can’t say enough how sorry I am, and I believe that I have shown that through my actions throughout my incarceration.  I’ve worked a job; programmed; maintained clear conduct — all signs of a man who is working toward freedom, bettering himself, and being responsible for his actions.  I am not looking to break the law ever again, as this mistake has truly made an impression, one of which I never want to revisit again.
