I Gary Gilmore ... a deluge of letters Stanger said Gilmore doesn't talk much about the love letters, but has hinted some women have proposed marriage. Gilmore's only romantic interest is Nicole Barrett, a 20-year-old divorced mother of two who joined him in an unsuccessful suicide pact last month. She was committed to a mental hospital after they both took overdoses of sleeping pills. Doctors turned away letters and flowers from Gilmore and refused his requests to talk to her on the telephone. This prompted him to go on a lengthy hunger strike. Between his arrest last summer and the suicide attempt, Gilmoie wrote more than a hundred letters to Mrs. Barrett, revealing his thoughts and feelings on murder, crime and punishment, and death. The Salt Lake City Desert News obtained and copyrighted them. While he was waiting to stand trial, he wrote that he "killed two young men who probably didn't deserve to die at that point in their lives." "I am deeply depressed that those two young men lost their lives for nothing. It haunts me to think what their families must feel. If I am sentenced and have to die for this, I'll accept it with grace and dignity." In another letter, he said, "debts must be paid in full, that's the law." Gilmore dwelt on his own death in several letters to the young woman, often in poetic terms. He urged her to join him in the suicide pact. IT 7 -ex- aas SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) - Condemned killer Gary Gilmore, made famous by his wish to die, has become a jailhouse philosopher whose advice is sought by concerned parents, curious children and the lovelorn. Hundreds of letters pour into his cell daily. Gilmore reads them all. Gilmore, waiting on Utah's death row for a date with a firing squad, may find out Monday whether the U.S. Supreme Court will let Utah execute him. The court is considering an appeal filed by Gilmore's mother asking for a review of Utah's death penalty statutes. Both Gilmore and the Utah state attorney general argued the court should set aside her appeal, saying she has no standing in the case. At the request of the mother, the court last week stayed the scheduled Dec. 6 execution temporarily. Gilmore's case was on the agenda Friday of the justices' final conference before the holidays. Monday is the day of the week the justices normally announce rulings. "There's always a pile of mail 2 feet high and 2 feet thick," says Gilmore's attorney, Ron Stanger. "Every day it's the same." Prison officials say the volume sometimes has reached 400 letters a day. The deluge began after Gilmore told the courts he did not want to appeal his conviction, but was ready to face a firing squad as punishment and "die with dignity, like a man." When he feels like it, Gilmore answers the letters writing neatly on a yellow legal pad, dispensing advice on child rearing or justice or explaining his views on sin, life, death and the hereafter. The admitted killer of two young fathers, who has spent nearly all his adult life in prison, urged a Salt Lake City woman to fall back on the traditional values of work and discipline in rearing her children. "There's a lot to be said for the so-called 'old-fashioned' values: work, discipline, etc. I think they belong among what might be more aptly termed, 'eternal verities,' " he wrote Charlotte Howe. The woman sent a letter asking what parents could do to save children from the corruption of society without making them rebels. "I believe parents should love their children," the convict, who had an unhappy childhood and hated his father, said. "They should be firm in discipline ain't nothing like fair discipline." "But let them have a little freedom, too," he added. "Show trust, love, concern." Though Mrs. Howe didn't ask, Gilmore also described his belief in after death. "All souls are headed for the same place, the land of no darkness. Some call it heaven. Whatever it is, it is a place where everything is ultimately clear everything is ultimately just." Twelve-year-old Lisa Larochelle of Holyoke, Mass., wrote letters to several famous people asking, "What will be the first question you will ask God when you see him." One letter came to Gilmore. I don't feel that any questions will be necessary when we eventually meet God," he wrote back. "I sort of believe we are all God; that God dwells in each of us and in all living things; that all living things are but sparks of the divine." Stanger said most of Gilmore's mail is religious "people wanting him to repent or accept Christ." He also gets a lot of hate mail, the lawyer added, and romantic letters. m m Merry Mushroom Cookware For Christmas Save $8 Versatile 4-Pc.
