Good Morning Vanessa,
This is Angela M., I wanted to let you know that Angelo peacefully passed in my arms on 8/31/2019. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for every bit of your help, every email, every question you answered and most importantly speaking on his behalf and advocating for his release with the board. We had a little more than a year together outside before he began a significant and swift decline, and we made the most of our time. He went to the beach, a concert, a Dodger game and even Disneyland, all things he had never done before. We took weekend trips, watched our son play basketball and stayed at the kind of hotels he never dreamed of growing up.
God answered my prayers as the significant and swift decline not begin until the end of July and left him with his dignity until he passed August 31st.
Again, I will forever be grateful and if anyone ever needs my help for whatever reason with the compassionate release process please don't hesitate to let me know.

I want to thank your organization for helping to bridge the gap from CDCR system and us free citizens. I am most appreciative of the monthly newsletters.

I just saw your post on facebook about family visit. I am in awe and amaze at the work you and your team does. You guys are truly AMAZING!! You guys are our voice...without you and your team the many men and woman would still be struggling to get their bonding time with their love ones. In behalf of my Husband and I, I would like to extend my gratitude to you and your team for being our voice, for speaking for us.We haven't got the privilege to have our family bonding time yet due to the new rules haven't gone in effect but seeing what you guys did for others is such a blessing that put me in tears. Once it does then our family visit will be approved. I'm ecstatic. I know you guys are busy but I just want to drop by to say thank you. Thank you for all you do and may the good Lord continue to bless you guys. May you be blessed twice as much for what you do to others to come back to you. God bless you and your family.

I would love to be a part of your newsletter/update mailing list. I just found out about your organization and cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you have done. My husband is a juvenile lifer. God willing my husband will come home thanks to the dedicated work of amazing people like you! Thank you for all that you do! May God always bless you, and you continue being a blessing to others. Hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you again!
I just wanted to thank you for your help and taking the time to respond to me. My dad did get his sentence reduced at his hearing. They reduced his sentence to what he has already served, so next up is parole hearing! I was able to attend and speak at the hearing, it made me feel like I could finally do something to help my dad after feeling so helpless the past 18 years. Thank you for your newsletters, I read every one that is submitted. It helps those like me who are across the country and can’t be there directly to support like we want.

Hi Dave & Vanessa
Wow, what an incredible email to receive this morning, so encouraging and helpful. You are amazing! All the work over all these years has paid off in spades. You are being acknowledged and really listened to because of your knowledge, persistence, hard work and credibility. It is long overdue and such an inspiration for all lifers and LWOPs. We could never thank you enough. I know firsthand because even with your incredibly busy schedule you’ve made so much time for me and your support has meant the world. With love, deepest appreciation and the greatest respect for both of you,

All the best -- and thanks for the SUPERIOR work you do to push for positive change with the State / CDCR and thus the subsequent information you broadcast to the many, many others who, like myself, have a loved one in prison.
You. Are. The. Best!
Thank you again for all you and Vanessa (and corp.) do on others' behalf!

Hi Life Support Alliance heroes!! I got so excited to share the news of my husband's being found suitable, I forgot to add this info to his Attorney Survey: The Commissioner was Schneider, and the deputy Commissioner was Sparks. It's been a great month or so for people being found suitable! And again, we could not have done it without all your help and information and encouragement. Thank you again.
Lucia & Gerard, Jan. 24th, 2019

I know your very busy I want to thank you for your commitment to this newsletter my son was sentenced to 80 plus is in Corcoran, Ca. and as God as my witness does not deserve such a sentence. He had a youth hearing we have a lawyer and trust these upcoming laws change his destiny.

Hello, my name is Zenaida S. I live in San Diego. My husband is currently in Centinela State Prison serving a life sentence. Let me just say all of you contribute so much to keeping my hope alive. I’m sure I’m not the only one. You all make a difference! I thank you with all my heart.

Would like to be added to your mailing list. I live in central valley... Hanford to be exact and interested in attending the Fresno seminar in October. We are both very confused, also he is closed A custody but said he’s not made to be present for the count times a closed A custody inmate has to go thru so another issue causing confusion. Any and all info or advice would be appreciated, you guys literally save the lives of many for providing the services you do, and I sincerely thank you for having an unconditional understanding when so many are against us. You are more than appreciated and there’s not enough we can do or say to give back what you have given us. Thank you again!
