Looking for a fun-loving, easy-going, single Christian woman who loves and puts God first in her life.

I ask you to be loving-kind and honest, and not into head-games. I am a God-loving Christian man who loves to laugh and have fun.

I enjoy reading and studying the Bible along with Nascar racing, football, baseball and basketball.

I am serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole, but that won’t keep me down

Now comes the defining moment that will determine if you’re truely ready to experience who carries sincerity and honesty as ‘gems’.

The most valuable things in life are the most simple. I’ve spent most of my life helping others and I do not regret a single moment.

The average person searches a lifetime to be satisfied on many levels of material, never realizing that true happiness comes from


Inmate Penpal Listing Juan Sanchez – Inmate Penpal #111212-2016

Start date : November 12, 2012  ¤  Listed in : Male Inmates Age 31 - 35, Prisoners Serving Life

Hi, my name is Juan Sanchez.

I’m 34 years old, 5′ 9″ tall, 188lbs., brown eyes, medium build, medium caramel tan complexion. I am athletic, I work out, play soccer, box and enjoy running. I’m Mexican, born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. In the little village neighborhood on the southwest side of Chicago, on 26th street.

I grew up struggling with poverty, gang-life, parents divorced when I was 5. They were both addicts of alcohol and drugs. I’ve been through mental and physical abuse and grew up in the streets, trying to survive.

I’m locked up for

These are words I describe myself as being.

Compassionate, sincere, artistic. I’ve been locked-up for 24 years and my journey has taken me from the streets of Chicago, inside the court rooms, to death row and back. The Governor of Illinois commuted my sentence in 2003. I’m now serving a life sentence, and that makes me look at life and how I live it in a whole new perspective. It has also given me many experiences and life lessons to share.

I spend most of my time drawing and painting. I’ve done many oil paintings and pencil drawings, but I enjoy working with all mediums. When painting or drawing I always try to allow for an element of mistery, a looseness or emotional space that a person themselves must fill. The details of a story, feeling and intent are all supplied by the person, not me — and this way

Hello to all.

I truely do hope that as you are reading this that everything is all well with you, that you are enjoying life, and have a big smile upon your face.

I’m William Keene, the last “e” is silent, so sounds like Keen. I was b orn on March 27th 1955 in a small town in the state of Wisconsin, which had a population of around 1200 people. I have blue eyes, 6′ 1″ and am around 200 lbs. I have many tattoos and am left-handed.

I am writing this to you because I’m very tired of being alone. I do not recieve any corrospondence from anyone. I am left to a solo existence each day. If everyone in this world were left to themselves, living a life all alone, can you realize what a truely miserable world this would be?

I do not seek sorrow, or any of that at all, for the bottom line is I can only blame myself for

Hello!

I am looking for a pen-friend and maybe something more. First and foremost, a friend or two (or more). I have a couple of family members still in touch, but no friends. I miss friendship tremendously. I’m hoping for long-term relationships. I believe in honesty, loyalty and dependability. I can be a good friend. I am a “captive audience”. I have a good sense of humor and hope you do too.

I am innocent of the crime and I am on appeal in hopes of proving it. I believe given the opportunity I can prove it to you too. I’m no angel, but I’m no monster either.

I’ve been alone for a while now., so I’m really looking forward to writing to you. I’m sure we have much in common and lots we can talk about. I’m a good listener. I’m open, we can talk about anything you want. I have a good heart. I’m warm, kind and

I am just looking to meet and greet a nice female, no strings attached.

I’m really a decent guy and it’s hard meeting someone who can see past the conviction and actually meet the person. Things are never what they seem on the surfice and inside these walls a human heart beats just like yours.

I am currently waiting on the Supreme Court to rule on juveniles being sentenced to life in prison
