104. The last letter got cut short by mistake. Here's the rest of the story.
A___ finally got a transplant but we got a bad kidney that poisoned his blood and made him sicker than before. But Bernie Ellis was there for us, through it all.

Please consider this in your judgment. Bernie Ellis has been a blessing to a lot of people and we need more people like him, rather than continuing to prosecute them. I would be happy to come to court and testify to the things that Bernie did for my husband. I own and operate my own business .... but I will gladly close and come to court to speak to you or anyone else if we can help Bernie to keep his farm.

In closing, I want you to know that, on the wall of my diner, I have a framed copy of the Nashville Scene cover that showed Bernie as a "Marijuana Martyr". It has been there for the past two years, and now shares space with a picture of Governor Bredesen signing the Voter Confidence Act, with Bernie standing behind him. Those pictures will stay on my wall for as long as I own this diner. Many of my customers who did not know Bernie before now say "hi" to him and offer him support because of those pictures on my wall. That is how it should be.

I feel that Bernie has more than paid his "debt" to society. Even though he did no wrong, Bernie has paid dearly. He should be left in peace on his farm.
