IN, January 18, 1989
Dear Ryan White,
Hi! My name is Abby. I have a cat named Cheeseburger and I live with my mom. My father lies in Florida with my stepmother.
I read the article about the Ryan White Story in the Journal and Courier, which is the newspaper, and the day before the movie was on I saw another article in the 12 page segment in the J&C called USA TODAY.
If you really had a dog named Barney, I'm really sorry about the accident. I had a dog named Cody and he turned vicious. Anyway, I can relate to pain.
Do you belong to any clubs or groups? My cousins and I have put together a semi-singing group called Chrashing Lighting. Whenever we're together we do something, but we just plan it as it goes.
My favorite groups are John Cougar Mellencamp, Tiffany (over)
Bon Jovi, and Wierd Al Yankovic. Most people ask me if I'm related to him, but I'm really not. My cat likes the Fat Boys and D.J. Jazzy jeff and the Fresh Prince.
My favorite TV shows are Cosby, Full House, Growing Pains, and Days of Our Lives.
Living in you have to live close to. Purdue is my favorite college basketball team. IU is my third. I also like the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs. But this year in the Superbowl it's the Bengals all the way.
I like to paint and sculpture abstract. I also like to make bracelets.
I'm home from school today because I have an ear infection and strep throat. I am so bored.
People say I dress wierd. It's kind of 1960's and 1980's without looking to stand-out. And my hair is the only thing 1960's. I don't rat it or anything,
but I put it up in ponytails.
I'm in sixth grad at Middle School.
I hope that I didn't leave anything out and I'd like to be friends (if you could stand one more). Please write back.
Your friend, Abby
P.S. Reporters are rude. Not just in movies, but in real life.
P.P.S. If I left anything out, I'll make sure to mention next time.
P.P.P.S. Please write back as soon as possible.
