My sister is in the jailhouse my nephew's too.
They're all singing those jailhouse blues.
In there for stealing,murder and drugs.
Their moma's didn't give enough kisses and hugs.
Try to ask my sis how ya doin at least once a week.
She say's sister your letters are so sweet.
I try to send her money to get what she needs.
Our moma would say come on Teresa do a good deed.
This was wrote for you sis I hope you think it's funny.
From your loving sister and your brother-n-law Bunny.
                                     Teresa Skyles 09-Dec-09

    It's really kind of you to remember your sister with letters and little gifts to help make her time easier. Spending the holidays in prison must be very difficult, especially if she has children. God bless you for sharing this heartfelt, yet very uplifting poem. Merry Christmas, Teresa. I admire your dedication to your sister. Much love, Carolyn

    Hard time this time of year!! But for the grace of the Universe I would be there myself, but after 30 years being clean and sober its all in the past. Hang in there Teresa and blessings on you for supporting your family!! Hope you have a warm holiday and that 2010 is a good year for you!
