A PLEA FOR HELP FROM THE FAMILY OF:
HERBERT L WILLIAMSON #095158
Arizona State Prison
PO Box 24400
Tucson Arizona 85734



Lynn's 80 year old Mother--Myrtle Williamson--(left) and twin brothers Jerry & Terry are asking for help from anyone that may provide assistance or information on getting Lynn home on a 'compassionate release'. His Mother has become the innocent victim in this case. Communication with Lynn (presently in Saint Mary's Hospital--Tucson Az) is non-exsistent. Her cards and letters are being returned. We are not allowed to call him or the (free-world) medical staff presently overseeing his welfare.
Our plight begins.............

On June 18th 2002....with a phone call from Prison Chaplain Henderson at the Florence AZ compound. He informed us that Lynn had been transferred to Saint Mary's Hospital and was either unable or unwilling to give any further information.

He did however, swithch me to the Florence Unit (Medical Chief) Mr Percy Howard, and I was able to find out that he had been diagnosed with a late stage of lung cancer. And there were other complications: high fever, and infection (pneumonia).

OUR VISIT........

Being 2200 miles apart has been a hardship and our only commication has been through the mail.
At 12:30 we arrived at the hospital to learn that Division of Corrections there had no record of our pre-approved visits. We waited an hour while they talked with DOC in Florence and finally were allowed to enter the heavily barred doors. Lynn was both surprised and happy to see us. He was in good spirit and even smiled now and then.
Due to the DOC mix up our visits were shortened to (1) hour and none on the 24th. He was not aware of the seriousness of his illness and we chose not to relay the time limit that had been told us.

On our last day (the guard at the room door) had an attitude and cut our visit short by over (10) minutes, for no apparent reason. This upset my Mother terribly.


INFORMED OF URGENCY TO VISIT

Many inquiries during the next few days unveiled a time limit on Lynn's life: not over six months, but could be anyday.

A visit to Saint Mary's Hospital was setup with the help of Major Yeger (Florence Unit).

We had been pre-approved for (1) hour on June 21st, (2) hours on June 22nd, (2) hours on June 23rd and (1) hour on June 24th.

And we are very thankful for the assistance that Major Yeger provided.

BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND FAMILY....

....our visit was made possible with the financial help and support offered by the memeber's at Silverlake Baptist Church (Wilmington NC), Mother's brother and sister-in-law (Jimmy & Sue Gause), and the many caring, giving friend's of Mother's.

We landed at Tucson International on the morning of June 21st.

It was not uneventful...we were randomly picked at each stop to have our luggage and person searched.
My Mother, who had never flown before, tells how she waited until the age of 80, to fly and to be frisked..(3) times.
