I received this, my twentieth message from Patricia, a second on 10th February 2011. This email letter is signed by Patty A and Margaret B with only Margaret's email in the signature but Patty's in the sender field. It's a little longer than last few, but we've had longer letters before. It was sent from Patty's mailbox but is signed with Margaret's email.

To Whom It May Concern:

Denver has become a bigger city in later years and we donít like all the changes and have a hard time adjusting or accepting it when we shouldn't have to or at all. Denver isn't as big as New York City, Philadelphia, L.A. Miami, Paris or London yet and I hope it doesnít become that way. Big city problems belong in big inner cities like New Jersey or New York not out west in smaller towns or in Denver. Denver is a million miles away from big East Coast cities and whatever happened on 9-11 and should be separated out. It should be their problem not ours. We have enough of our own problems to deal with and always did. Some people don't like changes and don't do well when changes occur and have a hard time adjusting. I guess I'm old school or was raised in different times and don't appreciate uncontrolled changes when we are long time residents of Denver and The West and aren't used to that.

I'm 50 years old and is a shock to realize I'm that old and have had a pretty lost and odd life whereas other people probably have kids and grandkids, have worked most of their lives and had a chance to graduate from college or have been married and live a nice life in the suburbs with a fairly normal existence all these years whereas I never had the opportunity to do any of that. I don't like kids and that should be no ones business. At least I have that going for me and always did. I have always liked the outdoors, pets and gardening more and wasn't raised with a large family around to help me through life. I'm not used to that type of lifestyle in general ever since I left The Clark's when I was about 12 years old and that was another adjustment and more changes I wasn't ready for and didn't need or one thought it was important. There could have been a lot of changes and adjustments in Denver about that time no one was receiving help or support around but should have. I've been an adult since I was 12 in a lot of ways so I've been told and have been on my own in a lot of ways others haven't since I was 12 years old. I never had much of a normal growing up experience or much of a mother, father and normal home life because of that. My Dad was a lot like that and my mother was raised in Wyoming around people who have lived a different lifestyle that hasn't changed in over 100 years. When it came to living a normal life in suburbia and raising kids my parents were a little left out of that or didn't know what to do so I've been told. I'm an only child with no siblings and it was always just the three of us. That was then and this is now. It was a long time ago.

My mother said we got along better when we stopped seeing our counselor Miriam Venetian who was a Catholic counselor but wasn't very nice and did more harm than good we thought. We have been getting along better and doing better since we quit seeing her and have given up the other counselors, doctors, therapists and case managers she and I have been seeing for many years. Coming home and getting off the streets, welfare and homeless shelters has improved my quality of life and health in general but it has been a struggle overcoming and surviving other peoples problems that haven't been resolved yet.

Our cat "Sunny" wasn't eating well or so I thought and was eating only cat cookies without much variety so I hope that didn't add to his problems. There was a cat food scare at the local supermarket a while before that and they removed all the varieties of cat food because they said they weren't good for cats and were making them sick. I hope he didn't suffer or become sick because of bad cat food or not enough variety. I hope he wasn't the victim of misguided or uneducated veterinary technicians who weren't aware our neighbors had problems and had problems keeping too many cats around they couldn't take care of.
