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I do have some of Gary’s unpublished works that I will be adding to here, but I will be concentrating on the Justice for Gary Yarbrough website mostly.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.
