Happy Valentine's Day My Aaron

Barley Hall in York holds a very special place in my heart. So Prison Widow is going to get soppy for a minute. The card was specially drawn for me in the USA. Thank you to the artist; Bulldog; and thank you to my gorgeous Aaron for making this Valentine's Day a special one.
The art work has been acknowledged by Barley Hall itself and has been passed to the management team there.
On behalf of myself and every one here at Prison Widow UK; I would like to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day and thoughts go out to everyone who has a loved one in prison.
