I decided to do a raffle, instead of an auction. I’m going to raffle off the handkerchief Gary made and a few of the original news articles that Gary kept from their case. This will go to help Jacob Goodwin, Daniel Borden, and Alex Ramos. The tickets are $5 and you can paypal to susanhyarbrough1219@gmail.com. The total amount will be divided among the three, to go towards their legal fees or whatever else they need. I’m going to run this probably for 3 to 4 week. I will post the closing date soon. They need as many funds as they can get. If you have any questions, please email me at susanhyarbrough1219@gmail. Also, if you get tickets, please put in the paypal notes, an email address I can email your raffle tickets to! This goes to a very good cause!

Even though Gary is gone, I still try to support our prisoners. The three men arrested from Charlottesville: Jacob Goodwin, Alex Ramos, and Daniel Bordon have struggled. They were given an attorney by TWP (who signed the contract) and who also done fund-raising, but kept the money. It is so sad when support for our prisoners are done like that. So, I’m either going to do an auction or raffle for these 3 men to help pay their legal fees, or for whatever they need the money for. The funds raised will be divided among the three men. I will post once I decide if I’m going to do a raffle or an auction. But this is the handkerchief¬†that Gary made, and is what I am going to auction off or raffle off.

Disclaimer: Because I am doing this does not mean that these men support Gary’s views and they are not associated with Gary. I’m doing this to help raise funds for them.

Here is the official Justice for Gary Yarbrough website¬†I am sorry it took me a bit to get it going, but dealing with Gary’s passing hasn’t been easy.

It has been a different emotion for me every day. Sometimes I’m sad, sometimes I’m angry. I always can see Gary laying in that hospice bed. I was glad I was able to be with him and he wasn’t alone. But Gary weighed maybe a 100 lbs, was to weak to sit up on his own, and was on oxygen….and he couldn’t speak. I have never seen a person with “liver cancer” who lost their ability to talk. How could he get that way in 5 months? I had just seen him 5 months before and he wasn’t healthy (who would be after over 10 years in ADMAX), but he wasn’t a skeleton with skin, as he was when I seen him last. Gary had been diagnosed with aneurysms and various other health conditions, including sleep apnea. One of these conditions is where he needed monthly blood letting for an iron build up in his blood, which ADMAX quit taking him months before he got sick, and I believe that this is what killed him. After our visit, he was calling me and telling me that he was losing weight, couldn’t sleep or eat, and was really sick. I tried, I tried so hard with letter campaigns and such, to try to get him help. But, people were telling others that I was making all this up for attention, when it was right here in Gary’s own handwriting and his medical paperwork. Many were shocked when he died, because they had heard I was making this all up for attention. This is why I am angry. The drama and stress that Gary was put through, when his health wasn’t that good, and people being told that I was making up how bad his health was. But what I am MOST angry at is that the people at ADMAX seen how he was going down and they did nothing. I called Regional and they did nothing. Something needs to change in our prison system, this just didn’t happen to Gary, it is happening to other prisoners. When I talked to Regional, I told them they were legally responsible for Gary’s health, and they were and are responsible. And those people who made it harder for me to do what I was trying to do for Gary, I hope they have to remember that the rest of their lives. They could’ve and should’ve been helping Gary with getting medical attention. But that is neither here or there.

I do have some of Gary’s unpublished works that I will be adding to here, but I will be concentrating on the Justice for Gary Yarbrough website mostly. I need to find an attorney. If anybody has any recommendations, please let me know. I have all of Gary’s medical paperwork that shows the medical neglect. I miss my husband greatly. I’m so lost without him, and I’m trying to work on all my anger and grief because I do need to get busy with this…I can’t get lost in a depression right now. What’s done is done. The past cannot be undone, but maybe in the future, people will leave a married couples business to the married couple, and listen when somebody says that somebody is ill and needs help, maybe they will listen because it’s too late to help Gary. I’m sorry I wrote this here. This is just about Gary, his writings, the fight for his justice, etc, but I had to vent. I don’t want this to happen again to any of our political prisoners or to anybody who has a loved one in prison. I had to vent some of my anger because it was just growing and growing. I needed this out of the way so I could concentrate on what I need to do for Gary. I am going to try my hardest to find justice for him..he deserves it…he truly does! And, we all need to learn from our mistakes, mine included. In David Tate’s eulogy to Gary, he talked of forgiveness, my husband was a big believer in forgiveness. I’m trying, I really am. But, while I was trying to concentrate on getting my husband medical help, there was all this other crap going on that took away from much needed important time and help he could’ve received. I’m at fault to, I shouldn’t have let it distract me from what I needed to do. I knew Gary loved me, and that’s all I needed to know. But I knew my husband and I knew what he stood for and believed in. I loved him dearly and fought as hard as I could.

I will be contacting people once the cairn is finished and the final arrangements are made for the service.

Here it is in PDF format, all you have to do is click on the link. If you haven’t read David Tate’s “The Movement is Dead..Long Live the Folk Cause, you really need to! David does not mind people sharing his works, they are meant for Folk to read. I had referred many to this article, so I wanted to make it available for people to read. It truly is a wonderful article with a lot of truth in it! It was originally published in the National Free Press. As it states at the top of the article that there is permission to publish this article, as long as credit is given to the author (David C. Tate) and National Free Press. I ask David though and he told me to feel free to share any of his works, that is why he writes them, for Folk to read them!


David Tate wrote a eulogy for Gary. They were very close, and it hurt David, when Gary passed away. I ask David, since him and Gary were so close, if he could write a eulogy for Gary, and here it is. He did a wonderful job, and I cried. Thank you so much, Brother. After getting to know David, since Gary passed, I see how strong of a man David is, and I have come to truly treasure his friendship. Christ is King! Please feel free to share this on any other website or social media. David really did a wonderful job.
