"I Pray I Will Live To See Him Home"

To all the members of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty,

I just returned from Baltimore to visit Kenny Collins, my son, who is on death row. Another year has passed, and we are still waiting to hear from the judge to rule on Kenny’s case. He said last August when we were in the court that he would let us know in a few months after he reviewed our new evidence that Peter Keith, my son’s lawyer, uncovered.

It was very hot downstairs in the small booth that we visited in, and they had taken away their fans for some reason. For 16 years, my son has suffered in prison for a crime he did not do. I pray I will live long enough to see him home.

Again, I want to thank you all for your help and support. Enclosed is a check to help in your work. May God bless you all.
