    Dear Gov. Lee, I sure wish that I could get some help in prosecuting my sister and her husband for thievery and abuse. They have taken a lot of things and not replaced them- now they do not have them and don’t know what has happened to my things and did not take them. Talk to Quality Home Health of Jamestown- Please I need some help having my things returned- If they are not going to replace, please help me at bringing charges against them. It sucks for your family to steal and abuse you- because you are handicapped ! Made reports to local police- nothing done- they would not arrest them for the crimes, police have even made out report- but he has brain damage- Please help me Lee, really sucks to be handicapped and your family/caregivers still and the local law will not help you recover the stolen things /arrest or help investigate and have me compensated and hold those responcible for stealing. Maybe if the local law would do their job instead of playing favorites !
