    Hopefully as the time goes by in prison he'll learn remorse and accept what he's done to its full extent.

    Just an fyi interstate calls are charged at mobile rates in prison so he will likely get upset about that too.

    If you think he's going to react poorly in person give the officers a heads up before he enters and they'll move your table closer to them etc

    Hi Sunflower

    I wish you all the best for the move and a fresh start.
    Maybe calls and emails will be better . I guess you can travel and make the occasional visits if you want to or need to .
    It is a difficult time in your life and I hope you find some peace. I don’t think they realise what they put us through.

    I hope all goes okay with the visit.

    Thinking of you.

    Hi Guest 7403 and sunflower62

    That advice sounds good Guest 7403 as always. We have valued your advice . Good to have your posts again. It’s been a while so hope you are okay.
    It’s so hard to know what reactions will be. We didn’t have the opportunity to visit our son at all because of Covid but the short time we did he didn’t ask us to visit when he suggested it. Just before he came out on parole he said maybe he should have asked and maybe should have tried to contact more people but at the time just was dealing with the every day things of life in prison and didn’t want to really know what was happening at home . Maybe sunflower your son will feel like that too .
    He still doesn’t contact anyone except his direct family and girlfriend as far as visit or have people over, but of course don’t know who he messages etc .

    rather
