I hope people will choose to write to this man and tell him his message wasn’t lost. Share it with people you connect with in your own social media. And if you want to send him an email, registering at Jpay is really easy. This way you don’t have to put your return address on an envelop if that matters to you. If you do write a letter and there is no handwritten ( no stickers) return address it won’t be delivered. I’ve used jpay for years. You send an email for the same price as a stamp.
