Mary Jo's forgiveness is so complete, she even wrote a letter asking that Amy be released from prison early. In part, it reads: "I have come to the conclusion that Amy Fisher has spent enough time in jail as punishment for her crime. It is right and good that I can now say that I forgive Amy Fisher. It is a place I have only been able to reach through grace."
According to Amy, she feels Mary Jo must be a "terrific person" to be able to find it in her heart to forgive.
