Dear folks, I have read your information about mailing carefully but unfortunately, I still have a few questions. I have been sending my son pictures of his family in 9x12 envelopes. Is the allowed at Rivers? Also, his kids occasionally draw pictures for their dad, but it looks like I cannnot send these. Thank you for your help. Don N., Sr.
