Letter To Dr. Wayne Dyer
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer passed away after I had sent him a letter. Watching a Memorial Service on You Tube, it was mentioned to write a letter. For some reason I was compelled to write it out for you.

Dear Dr. W. Dyer
Okay, I've already screwed up...
My typewriter has died, so you will have to try to read my scrawl, but I believe you write all your books by hand, so maybe you'll be all right with this.
I wrote in my jog (journal/blog) about a month ago --- WRITE TO WAYNE DYER. Now I've forgotten why I wanted to write. But I guess I have 2 concerns
How do you (me) struggle against Mass Incarceration?
My fiancé` has been incarcerated 30 years and just received another flop of 84 MONTHS. That is the way it was presented to him and he had to do the math as he struggled to comprehend he was not going to be released --- AGAIN. 84 months is 6 years and 10 months.
A brief explanation --- Ohio has 2 sentencing laws, Old Law and New Law. Persons sentenced under New Law for the same crime as John get 15 years. Then they are released without having to see the Parole Board. For John to be re-sentence 84 months after serving double what New Law would serve, is incomprehensible!
the New Law was intended to eliminate the Parole Board. When they caught on to that they started continuing most Old Law prisoners to protect their ($90,000 a year) jobs. They don't look at anything the prisoner has accomplished while in prison --- just the severity of the crime --- which is never going to change!
You can't write to the Governor and complain about the Parole Board, because they send it to the Parole Board. The law needs to be changed. How can I do that?
Okay --- next concern.
After a six year struggle to KEEP my house, having had it foreclosed on, bought back by the BANK, and then donated to an organization, which gave me a Land Contract to buy it back; when I only owed $1,100.00 on it, I was given a court ordered TERMINATION of my contract and my house will be put up for sale. How do I combat that?
I do have Legal Aid working on it and it sounds a bit more promising in the last few days, but this is harrowing! I am a Senior Citizen on a fixed income --- with no where to go an no way to get there.
The foreclosure was fraudatent (FRAUDULANT) in the first place and I believe they DONATED my house to get rid of me. Well, then the organization was found fraudulent, of what, I'm not sure. I found out AFTER THE FACT. In other words, the court/judge had no knowledge of me or my contract so I was not given DUE PROCESS OF LAW. My attorneys are now trying to re-open the case and 'put me in it' without opening a new case.
It sounds promising. I've seen a few miracles in my life and I'm hoping for another one. I've been in my house for 14 years and I AM KEEPING MY HOUSE! This is what I've been saying all along.
I also have 18 animals
I am feeding, all but 2 of which are/were STRAYS. Those two are AKC Reg. Pomeranians, one who is 17 years old and has been my constant companion since he was 6 weeks old. The other will be 10 in July and I've had him since he was 9 weeks old. The rest are cats who are/were STRAYS. I lost one last week and I'm not sure why, unless she got some poison.
I had the heartbreaking experience of a Mama and 3 of her Babies, succumb after she ate a rat who had been poisoned and the babies were nursing. The 2 remaining Orphans are compromised. At the same time, I had 3 other pregnant cats, one who had 5 premies and 3 of them died. Thanks to some donations, I managed to get all but the Orphans spayed and neutered. One outdoor cat was hit by a car last October.
Whoops --- I forgot to mention another dog who came as a stray/throwaway. She is about 4 now. All the dogs are indoor and 5 cats are indoor. That is my immediate family and another reason I NEED my house.
Continued --- July 21, 2015
As you can see I didn't finish this.
I was going to throw it away, but I thought, well, why not finish and catch up on what is still going on?...
The house is still in LIMBO (almost worse than that. I live like I am on the edge about to fall off. NOTHING has changed, except I used all of my savings to pay $1066.00 in Real Estate Taxes on the advice of my attorney, with a $525.00 balance that was due on June 20.)
I met with my attorney (for the first time) and signed an affidavit. She is planning to file a Motion to Vacate. (not me --- THEM!)
I talked to my brother's wife yesterday and they are going to send me the money for the rest of the taxes. I don't know when or how I can pay them back.
I lost my little pal, my Hero, who I said was 17. He was actually 17 1/2 when he died in my arms June 22.
I had lost a year old cat March 16 that I didn't mention. I found her dead one morning of unknown cause ---but likely she found some poison.
And in late May my Grand Mama of all my kittens disappeared. She's a street smart cat, so the only reason she wouldn't come back would be because she can't. I'm hoping somebody picked her up and took her home. I can hope, anyway. She even has Hope in her name. DIXIE RUBY HOPE DREYM.
So, I've had my share (or more than) of heartache since I first wrote this.
(xxx I see I did mention the cat who might have been poisoned. xxx)
I'm gonna send this, Wayne. I'm not sure why, because there's likely no answer to my dilemas, but I hate to just waste all this paper... (smiley face)
Say a little prayer.
February 27, 2017...UPDATE
Of course, our dear Wayne Dyer passed away on August 29, 2015. I imagine he may have seen my letter, because it never came back.
I just need you to know I won my house. I recorded the Quit Claim Deed last Friday. I can only thank God and the Legal Aid Society of Columbus, OH.
Nothing has changed for my fiancé, John. But now with the weight of my house off my shoulders, I can concentrate on changing things for him.
