Nevada

Derzeit befinden sich über 70 Männer im Todestrakt des Staatsgefängnisses von Nevada. Das Ely State Prison liegt ca. 15 km nördlich von Ely im White Pine County. Das von Bergen umgebene Gefängnis ist 4 Autostunden von  Las Vegas entfernt. Kontakte per Post sind für die Insassen in Nevada daher von besonderer Bedeutung, da die Besuchsmöglichkeiten aufgrund der weit abseits gelegenen Lage nochmals erschwert sind.

Hello I’m Timmy W. and I’m incarcerated in the state of Nevada. I’ve been on death row since 2003, I was convicted of sexual assault and two counts of murder. I’m trying to be the better person I’ve become and continue to grow from my past. I am hoping to find friendships through the mail. I like to think I’m a funny person, and all things intrest me. I’m very limited here at ESP in Nevada and hope to create lasting friendships with anyone. I don’t have any issues with anyone, and would gratefully welcome any and all letters.

I do like almost all sports, and comedies (movies and tv shows). I read a lot, and also enjoy math puzzles, braingames, etc.

If you can find it in your heart and time to drop me some lines, I would greatly appreciate it.

„Friends“ – with just a smile they can warm your heart and with a kind word, lessen your burden.

I would like to write a good „ad“ for my webpage to let people know that I’m looking for friendship, that I’m looking for that special friend, I so much need in my life.

I am looking for that caring person who’s willing to discover the qualities which make me a person of value…, and not just a caged prison number unworthy of compassion.

But I’m not sure if I am able to do that with just a few words in this short „ad“. It may be difficult to get your attention with this „ad“, about the seriousness of my situation; – or for you to understand the loneliness and a profound lack of care, being alone and devoid of emotional support on Nevada’s death row.

My name is Tony and I’m in desperate need of your friendship and care. I would like to correspond with you and be your friend; to discuss life in general.. I want to know who you are, to hear about your happiness and troubles; to share life’s experiences with one another.

It would be nice if you could take some time from your busy life to write me  a letter and introduce yourself, maybe we will be able to build an excellent friendship and keep each other company.

I would be extremely grateful to all those willing to correspond with me and be part of something noble. „Thank you and may you have a nice day“

Tony

I like to write poetry, short stories, too.

I also like to read novels and watch sports, where I sometimes cheer or boo.

I like play chess, crochet, and do hand sewn embroidery.

There’s a lot more to me than this

so I hope you’ll reach out,

To create a friendship with me.

I am humorous, open-minded, a father as well, and eager to share,

all of the stories we’d have to tell.

Your gender does not matter. A friend is a friend,

and I hope you’ll have plenty of paper and pens.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Ich lese Deutsch sehr gut, schreibe ok.

“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all unexplored before me.” 
Sir Isaac Newton (slightly paraphrased)

Maybe we’d like to put behind us or forget the experiences of the last year, the loss, disruption of what we thought solid and certain… I find it difficult, so I make myself get up and try.

The year also reminded, there are special few who make the journey worth the price of admission. Having someone walk life’s path with you who by their very presence makes the dark penetrable, the light warmer –

If you’ve found yourself reading these words, you really should write.

I am seeking a few to share interests, explore some differences, maybe who will become good friends. A note of caution 🙂 I don’t do rapid or shallow. I seek to really get to know you. I am direct, intense, depth seeking, do tell a rude joke or two (a man in an all male environment). There are enough reasons in a day to frown. I am not one of them. I pursue with a passion that which inspires the heart to race and soar. I love to to ride a motorcycle, listen to music on the heavier side, explore nature hike bike climb – I have a master’s in theology, enjoying a study physics to philosophy, practice Tang Soo Do and yoga —

The best way to write is through yapwrite.com or jmail..cc

Ich freue mich auf unseren ersten Brief

Richard H.

Hello

My name is Richard H. Everyone calls me Rick, I am a young 65 years old with a lot of energy, including a lot of daily Boredom.

I am sending out this short letter of introduction, hoping to find a pen pal to adopt me (smile) or at the very least turn into a long distant friend! Everyone needs friends. Right!

Naturally I love to read good novels, mostly mystery or fiction, or a combination of both. Really just anything that sends the mind a drift.

I have a creative mind that has developed into some really nice craft projects. Enclosed photo was taken with a project that turned out really well. I have built several 17th and 18th century war ships, and other projects with just a little glue, paint and several types of every- day cardboard materials. I would spend many hours very content and far away from these prison walls.

My family situation is nonexistent. For the past 34 years all of my older family members have died for one reason or another. I am on my own. I really would like to open up some channels and topics of no-nonsense communication with someone willing not to give up on the old school pen to paper “Hello are you out there”.

Take Care/Stay Safe + Hope to hear from you!
Richard

Zane F.

Hi, I’m Zane. I am 45 years old and a death row inmate in Nevada, and I’m looking for a friend.

I’ve been locked up for twenty years. As time goes by the connection to your past life dwindle away, and you need to make new ones. The only way I have to connect to the outside world is with someone who is willing to take the time, and make the effort to share their life and experiences with me. I have a very little family left so this is very special to me, and very appreciated. It seems like such a simple thing, but having someone to share thoughts and ideas with is very important.

I love to read. I will read anything I can get my hands on; history, science fiction, and fantasy are my favorite subjects. I also enjoy keeping up with current events and politics. I also maintain a strict exercise routine, it’s easy to let your health slip in here.

As much I wish it wasn’t so, I have no artistic talent. I can appreciate art, but can barely draw a straight line with a ruler and won’t pretend otherwise.

I’m not looking to use or play games with anyone. I’m really just looking for honest friendship.

Sincerely
Zane

I’m Bryan. This life has been a roller coaster of an adventure, but all the ups and downs have made me a better person.  Loyal, always with a good sense of humor, and a touch wild, I approach life as an eternal optimist.

I follow a Buddhist model of spirituality and am a voracious reader of this literature. I’ve started an intensive meditation practice, as this is where my heart truly is. This meditation, combined with yoga, exercise, and extensive study is how I fill my days. I’m all about development on the three axes of mind, body, and spirit.

It’s my sincere hope to meet a like-minded Buddhist woman for deep conversation and meaningful friendship. The journey is just that much better with someone special to share it with.

Pedro R.

My name is Pedro, I am 41 years old and I’ve been on death row in the state of Nevada since 1999. I am very family oriented and devote the majority of my time trying to improve myself to someone they could be proud of. My main hobbies are drawing and reading books about World War II. But physics and understanding our reality at a quantum level is a passion of mine. I have 3 grandchildren ages 1 & 2. The younger ones are twins. All 3 of them are my reason for living. I enjoy most genres of music. Especially ‘80’s pop and really heavy metal. I grew up in East Los Angeles, California basically trying to keep food on the table for my younger siblings and I. So I had to grow up fast and make adult decisions at an early age.

As of now I am looking for someone I could trade ideas with and discuss the vast information I have gathered over the years. So much has gone on in this world since my time here and would really love to hear about it through your experiences.

Thank you for your time.

In hopes, Pedro

With much respect waiting patiently

STAMP BACK GUARANTEE

Your search for someone eye-catching is understandably difficult. My search for you is equally so. Friendships develop in many ways, as all people have their unique story. Mine is no different. As an adopted child, I searched for an identity and belonging, making misconceived choices and finding misplaced friendships and inevitable heartache. Though my ultimate journey was rough and my destination attainable, these events shaped my underdog perspective and there lies my story.

I´m a great listener, ambitious, passionate, thoughtful, humorous and naturally curious. I read legal thrillers, listen to Marvin Gaye, In This Moment and La Cuna Coil. I enjoy 80´s horror flicks, study constitutional law, philosophy, and history, demolish italian and Soul food, and have beautiful pastel and drawing skills. I adore, but have no children and am dedicated to family.

I hope to find someone whose canvas is fully painted, but unappreciated. Someone I can laugh, confide, encourage and find joy with. Someone who roots for underdogs, smirks at challenges and whose life experiences make them formidable, authentic and even bold.

Everybody falls, some harder than others. If you can see past my bruises, scrapes and tears, if you can somehow sense my growth and desire to share, I want to hear your story, no matter where or who you are.

Optimistically,

Arthur
