    Travis county is awesome on visitations and I heard they have scheduled picture day I wonder how much it cost but when I call they are so polite I imagined the awful police beating the inmates in prison on TV and stuff but it seems like the exact opposite I can’t wait til my man comes home but at least I know he is in good hands for now

      I would send the letters to the address listed on the prison page, but I would recommend calling the facility directly to confirm.
