"I never want to see the color white again"

Hi Juanita,

I just want to say thank you for letting me see Alex's dogs on the video chat. They are so cute and loving! When you cuddled them, I felt like I was going to cry because it made me remember my dog, the one I named Dolly. All day long, I walked around with the image of you hugging the puppies. I really miss having a dog to bathe, play with, go to the fields, throw the ball, I taught Dolly how to come whenever I rang the bell.

So today was a good day. It made me so happy to see that you were so happy with the dogs and your kids! Ezra even said hello to me, and I got to tell him happy birthday. I noticed he was a little shy, which I thought was charming. He's so tall!

Here I am in my bed, well, in the bed that ICE has loaned me, listening to music, writing to you, and laughing every time I think about my video calls with you. I get to see your garden, with its beautiful colors, the walls with the pretty paintings. The world feels alive! Here, I only see the color white--white sheets, white walls, white tables, white floor, white bathroom, etc. When I leave this place, I never want to see the color white again.

Well, that's all I have to tell you! Take care of yourself, and blessings on you and your beautiful family.
