Hello! My name is Lori [Redacted] I'm 13 ½ years old. I go to [Redacted] Hi School in [Redacted] [Redacted], IN. I'm in 8th grade. I think, from all the years of watching TV & listening to the radio, that you are a very nice youngman. I watched the movie about you last night. It was very dramatic & sad. I cried alot. But I was also a little angry & always have been with people like the ones in Kokomo. I can remember when I was 8 or 9 when you first got AIDS. I cried! At that time I did not even know what it meant. I also cried when I heard them say on TV that you couldn't go to school! Since then when I have to do reports, I always choose you [of what little I know.] & AIDS. Now, I know quite a bit
if you ever want to call me my # is [redacted].
about AIDS. But not as much as you. I'm sure of that.
Do you know what I have one goal in life: It is to meet you in person & become really really good & close friends.
This morning you were on WZPL. I recorded you! I finially after all of these years got and address to write I was so happy!
So, do you think you'll ever come to[Redacted], Indiana? It's near [Redacted]. I'm sure you know where that is. If you ever do, it would be more than an honor to meet my most honored person!
Will you do 2 favors for me? (1.) Write me a letter & tell me some more about your life, when your birthday is, (mines [redacted]), & your girlfriend. (2.) Send me a picture (recent) of you w/ your autograph. Please write back soon. I'll be waiting. Your biggest fan ever & for always, Lori |Ann| [redacted] "93"
