I was born in Decatur County and started grade school there.
Not long afterward, my father lost his job, so my parents decided to move to Nashville, Tenn. As we were moving, we had a bad car accident and my parents were killed.
The local hospital contacted some of my relatives, but they would not accept me. So I was placed in a group home until I was adopted or I had turned 18. I was never adopted, so when I turned 18 I started out on my own.
As luck would have it, I got mixed up with the wrong crowd and got into trouble; now I am in prison in Alabama.
I am sure that I still have some relatives living in or around Greensburg, and I would be very thankful if the Daily News would be kind enough to print this letter. Hopefully some of my relatives will see the letter and remember me.
I would very much like to hear from them, or if anyone wanted to just write me I would appreciate hearing from them. I would surely answer their letters because I have no one.
