Three San Quentin prisoners were married in the Visiting Room last month. Here are some of their comments.
George and Robyn Yacomb: “We wanted to bond our love as soon as possible,” said Robyn. “It’s the best Christmas present ever.” She said she believes George will be released soon and the couple plans to have another wedding once he’s released.
“Being with her is like breathing”
Brandon and Amanda Dawson: They wanted to marry earlier in the year, but the prison was not able to make arrangements. It worked out “great,” said Amanda. Even though they didn’t plan a Christmas wedding, Brandon said, “It just feels so natural. Being with her is like breathing; it’s the right thing to do.”
Roy and Kecia Willis: Roy has known Kecia’s family for years. “Our families are connected and had been seeing each other for a long time,” said Kecia. One day I came along while they were visiting “and the spark I got from Kecia was irresistible,” Roy said. “I’m the happiest guy in the world today.”

In an earlier Visiting Room ceremony, Adrian “Redd” Casey and Robin were also married.
“You bring me joy”, Robin told her husband.
