As someone who has been on the other end three times, being told a loved one/family member has passed, I think you are taking the right approach. The last thing I want to hear is "I know what your going through" followed by the equally shitty 'advice session'.

Especially with professional bad news bears, doctors, cops, etc. I understand that you've done all you can to prevent uttering those words to me, I know it is difficult for you. I don't want a lingering presence, I want to be able to focus solely on keeping everyone I'm there with together and to start my grieving process (work).

Hi Ronnie,

First I want to express my sorrow in hearing what you experienced, I am an ex-con and did nowhere near as much time as you (about 10 years). I must admit in my years in the system (granted I am/was in Canada) I never really believed anyone inside who claimed they were innocent and tended to not associate with them. Did you face much difficulty from other cons who didn't want to hear it or didn't believe you?

How many more hurdles did you face from the prison due to protesting your innocence?

Thanks for taking the time to read and I hope you are safe, healthy and warm! Good luck in your battle I sincerely hope you get compensation even though it can never account for or replace what was taken from you.
