Art from Coach Gary

2 Dec

Dear Outside World:

I’m known as Coach Gee!!! Creative Arts with conviction has carried me from a 16 year old boy to a 49 year old man Lifer!!!  One mistake changed my whole life.  I’ve been given a second chance to come outside of myself and help others.  I’m blessed to be a certified official with all sports programs here at Labelle Pa.  I used this as a barrier to break the cycle and offer encouragement through art and sports to help inmates with stress and anger management!!  That’s very important because that’s what got me here so many years ago…please enjoy my artwork and thanks for the opportunity to reach out to others and make the best of life inside these prison walls!

    Hi cousin!! I don’t need to reiterate to how amazing your artwork is, because you already know how I feel about your awsome talents. I am still sending those pictures, just a little delayed right now. This is certainly a testimony that God’s work will not be hidden from the public. Keep using what God has given you and no bars can contain you. I love you cousin and I pray that your artwork and coaching talents not only minister to those lives that you touch through it, but that it may forever bring you peace and hope for tomorrow! I love you! Nan

    It is me again Gary, I sent you a Christmas card and it came back because I left something out. I want to wish you a Happy New Year, and with God’s blessing it will be one for you. Love you, and talk later.

    Hi Gary,
    What a beautiful testimony to the blessings of God in your life! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thank you so much for the beautiful card that you made and sent to “Your Williams Family”. I loved it!! We love you too and hope that you know that you are prayed for often. I’m like Berta, I need to get some pics to you too so that my family can be in “Gary’s Hall of Fame”! This is a great forum for your family to stay connected with you. I will make good use of it. I love you cousin. Continue to seek God’s face and the Hand of God will continue to lead, guide and bless you. ~ Diane

    Hi Big Cousin, this is your little cousin and I love your artwork. I think you are amazing and I am very proud of all the work that you have accomplished. I always knew there was a lot of creative talent in our Kyles Family and I’m just in “AWW” at your level of talent shown in your artwork. And that picture of Jeannette is Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
    I love you Cousin and you and your talent deserves to be showcased. Keep up the great work and thank you for adding some color to our lives!!!!!!

    Hi, Gary I’ve heard so much about you and seen your artwork. It is great to hear of the work you are doing with our youth of today, which is rather clueless in todays society. I am grateful for Prison Arts Coalition for helping inmates show their talent.
