Default Love one currently at Autry in Georgia? Need answers

I realize this may be a really long shot, but due to the holiday, this is where I'll start.
I am trying to find, and connect with families, who have a love one in Autry State CI in Georgia, on HOPE of locating fellow inmates who knew my three childrens father.
We divorced years ago, and only my youngest (24) and I had spoke to his dad last in 2014, just before his last incarnation. He passed away last Friday, my son and I by his side, but he was unable to speak. I know he heard our every word, the "I forgive you's" the "I love you's" and the "I'm so sorry's" that my son and I spoke,all the tears that were shed, as we wiped the tears from his eyes.
He usually reached out while incarnated, but this time he didn't, nor did we, and now we have to live with that. So "why am I here?", over the past 16 years, the only contact my son had with his dad was 2013 -2014, when he would call. Thankfully, we were able to meet briefly the Chaplin at the prison, who did know his dad, and gave words my son REALLY needed to here;"you dad bragged about his three boys a lot. He had a lot of guilt and regret, but he loved you very much."
My son wants to know more about his dad, his last few years, and only those who were in with him can give any answers; the boys and I were the only one's listed on his visitation,although we never knew.
I realize some may say "why do you care now?", and truth is I never stopped caring for him, nor did his children! We chose FORGIVENESS years ago, for his disease and weaknesses.
So if anyone can help, it sure would help my son as he is dealing with the loss of his dad. Thank you, and God Bless us all.

I am so sorry that your family missed a chance.
Im glad at least that they got a chance to say goodbye. Greatful that the chaplain was able to talk to your son about his dad.
Im sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss but thankful that you were all able to ease his passing. The heart knows what we can't always say in words. Your being there was what was truly important.

Having more to remember about who he was is understandable. Have you posted your request in the Georgia section of the forum? I suggest you also reach out to the National Incarceration Association. They are an advocacy group based in Georgia & their president goes to almost every DOC Family Day to connect with families. Her name is Kate Boccia & she may have some contacts at Autry that might be able to find the info you need. Go to their website & at the very bottom of the page, click on Contact us or volunteer. Then fill out the info form that pops up. The website is https://joinnia.com/
