We were finally able to receive Tyra’s response from Dayton Correctional. She was very grateful for all of the kind words of encouragement and support. Below, are the words she wanted us to share with those who wrote to her via Facebook or Twitter:
Thank you all so much for loving me and keeping me close to your heart and in your prayers. I love and miss all of you so much. I’ll keep fighting as long as you all keep praying for me. You all should know that my team is very supportive and is working very hard to advocate for my release, and I thank God every day for them and their hard work. I also want you all to realize how much your support means to me, I also thank God for this.
For those that have been fighting for me for a long time, I am so grateful that you haven’t given up hope and faith on me after all these years. It’s friends and family like you all that reminds me of God’s blessings. I promise you all, that when I get out, I will be faithful to the younger generation and do all in my power to make sure no one has to go through what I have and help encourage younger people to make positive life choices.
You all will never know how much you truly mean to me. Thanks again for all of your love and support. Your support and my legal team help me stay positive and upbeat through this journey to being free. Blessings and love to everyone who passed on words to me. I look forward to hearing from you all again!
