Dear Ryan,

A week ago I watched your movie. Was surprised to see you play a part in it.

I'm writing this letter in hopes it reaches you. If it does please write and let me know. I have been reading & watching every thing on your life. I'm writing this to you & your mom & sister, because after seeing the movie I'm so proud of all of you. Maybe that isn't the word I should use, but I want all of you to know I think of you so much.

I'll start with myself. I live in {redacted} Ill. Its near Carte {above: "(7 miles)"} Il. Home of Southern Ill. University. My name is Susie & I'm married second time to Tom. We are 44 & 46. Together we have seven kids & three grandchildren. My 81 year old mother lives with us & my 19 year old daugher also.

I'm trying to understand all I read & hear about AIDS but I'm also afraid. I know I want to be your long distance friend. You are such a handsome young man & such a strong willed person. I'm afraid I would have already given up, all of my problems seem so small compared to all your family have gone through.

One of the times I saw you on T.V. you were going to be 16 in July & a car dealer was going to give you a car. Did that happen? You will be 17 this summer? Does your sister still skate now that you have moved to Cicero?

Several years ago I wrote to a little girl that was in the "Star" magazine. I wrote to her a year. She was nine & needed a heart-lung transplant. She got it & is doing okay. She used to write me short letters & send pictures.

Would you please send me a school picture of yourself? When you aren't busy with school & whatever else I would like for you to write to me & let me know how you are. We could be pin pals. My love & prayers are with you. Maybe your mom won't care that you are writing an older women. H H

Please send me your home address. as this is all I have now.

Want to hear from you, Susie {redacted}

My address is Susie {redacted} {redacted} {redacted} Il. {redacted}
