Dear Erick

This is the letter in its entirety:

Erick,

I just want you to know that I love you. We don’t have time in this life to be sad or hide who we really are because before you know it, it could be too late. Love whoever you want, just love hard, I support and will support you in any way possible.

I know we’re not the closest, but I just wanna let you know that I know and I don’t [inelgible] because it doesn’t change you as a person.

So if you ever need to get anything off your chest, I’m right here. You don’t have to find your identity alone! I love, I care, and I support you, Erick.

Love, Sean
