Pulaski State Prison
PO Box 839
Hawkinsville, Georgia 31036

My name is Melissa and if you are reading this maybe you will open your heart and become a much-needed friend.

I’ve spent 16 years and counting here. The wrongful Conviction Center has agreed to investigate my case and I have signed a consent form for them to speak to the media. So please don’t look at the circumstances and judge me or overlook a potential friend in me.

I’m a wonderful person, a loyal friend. I am very outgoing, caring, compassionate and very understanding. I have a great sense of humor and a great love for God.

I love to cook all kinds of foods, plant flowers, I love to spirit dance (feels like I am before God Himself). I like walking, traveling and taking pictures.

My plans are to be a motivational speaker, people need to learn how bad things can happen to good people, and if given the chance, could turn their life around.

I would also like to volunteer to feed the homeless. That’s why even in my storm, I live in the faith, differences can start anywhere. When you do something good, that feeling you get can surpass anything else.

I seek friends who are open and honest and who really care about people, and love God. Someone positive and just as inspiring. A lot of people are successful because someone believed in them. I believe every person should grant a chance to another.

It doesn’t matter what race or age friends are, love and support are all is required. Anyone non-judgmental, who is spiritual with a love for people and God are much welcomed. We can correspond about family, friends, or anything. We can even do bible studies together, you name it.

I know there is someone out there who could use a friend, and ladies you are welcome to write. I plan to marry some day when God sends me a good man for a husband.

I could use some advice, a friend who I can share my thoughts and goals with. My dreams with. I am a physical person and love graphic arts and music as well as learning new things. It’s been a lot of years inside here for me.

So, sincere, understanding, respectful, open-minded and genuine please reply. I will write anyone who writes me. Everyone desires to be happy, so hearing from you will do just that for me here. Make me happy.
