Closing Advice

Interview with Jerry and Pat

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Jerry: I would say that they should find a job working in the facility if they are doing a long sentence. f your loved one is not one to fight or follow rules, they should lock it up and get protective custody.
Pat: To visit as much as possible and to writew words of encouragement to them we feel so broken and alone when we get in there it seems like we are instantly forgot once we get in there. Just because we made bad choices dont mean we are bad people we just need to figure it out and love and encouragement can help define a person while being locked up to what way they will go when thay get out.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Jerry: Work on yourself as a person. keep your mind body and soul in shape. Read books, play cards, watch tv and exercise. Take care of yourself and most important be respectful. especially goes a long way in jail and people will see it and respect you back.
Pat: Stay to yourself get a job if you can like laundry or anything it really helps pass the time.Dont allow people to suck you into there drama take that time to figure out whatyour going to do with your life when you get out chances are your not only hurting but your hurting other people who love you by being gone, focus on ways to change your patterns that got you there on focus on morally right prorities.
