• Employees at a medical office
reported finding a harassing letter. The unknown suspect slipped the letter through the building’s mail slot on a day when patients weren’t being seen and only employees were present. On those days, the doors are kept locked. For a few minutes in the afternoon, the employees were all in the rear of the office. When one of them returned to the reception area, she discovered the letter on the floor.
I loves you like a possum loves June bugs.
I sees you most every day and I wants to say my love to you and gives you a big hug and squeeze.
Jesus told me to love you and he said you going to love me back.
You is always in my dreams - sometimes that blonde-headed girl named Juniper that works there.
Kisses to each of yous.
