    I have a loved one who has been transferrd to Yazoo city low, from Florida. It has been about three years since we’ve had contact, and the last letters I sent were returnd to me, (I’m assuming because of a small sticker on the eenvelope, and/or purfume) I’m from Canada so it takes very long for letters to reach.
