I met Allan at mutual friend's house in 1993- a bunch of us played cards often. He stopped by a few times to see his girlfriend, who was in our little group. He would make the comment they hadn't "found him a bed yet" and, "it wouldn't much longer" Finally, I asked him what he meant by that, and he told me he had to go to federal prison. I didnt believe him. He told me, he would wrtie me, when he got there, to prove to me. About a month later, lo and below, I got my first letter from him.
Allan got himself mixed up with the wrong crowd, and spent the next 4 years in ferderal prison, on drug charges. We wrote each other, every week, and I got to know him, a lot better. He deeply regretted his involment.
I moved back to IL. at the same time Allan, was released.
I enjoyed my letters from him, still have them.
In 2007, I moved back to Fl. but to learn that Allan had died, a few months, before I made the move.
