"You told me you didn't want to be on the block anymore. Did you really mean that? I mean, I've said way worse, so I understand, but still, it made me almost hang myself. I can't even imagine them separating us. I'll feel like I'm missing all of me. F**k half of me. I love you that much. I just wanted you to begin this day knowing how loved you are and that you have someone through it all in life," the letter said.
