A Ray of Sunshine for Sonny

Sonny is Hispanic, and has been in prison since 1999. He sends this note to HFP:

"I’m writing to let you know I appreciate your help! I’ve been dealing with this situation for over two decades, and I’m glad that you exist.

It will not be forgotten, or underappreciated!"
