Greetings and Welcome!


Hi, and thanks for visiting our blog.

My name is Gerry, and my wife Patty and I feel we have an interesting and personal story to share. It relates to surprise and heartache, Federal incarceration, staying in a marriage for better or worse, fatigue, faith and even some humor.

Our story is fact not fiction. Trust me; I’d rather be fishing completely alone on a quiet lake. I’m not a self-adoring, global, embellishment kind of guy. However, the intent of our blog, is to give hope, encouragement, and compassion to those doing time behind bars both literally or figuratively.

Unfortunately, the USA is a prison nation with the highest rate of incarceration in the world. When an inmate does time; the family does time as well, period. If a person is doing time struggling with an out of control need for approval, weight loss, alcohol, drugs, gambling, negative self-image, or porn, to name a few; their family members are doing time as well.

Hopefully, sharing actual parts of our journey, as a couple and individually, will quietly help somebody really struggling behind “bars,” in which case less fishing is just fine.

It’s peace of mind both ways.
