I wish you didn’t have to go. But I know you want to do something with your life. I will miss you so much. But I wish you didn’t have to go to the navy. Every time I think about you going it makes but scared. I’m scared that I won’t see you again. Everyone says you will be alright I hope that’s true. Well now that navy has the best guy cousin I have ever had. I’ll try not to cry. I know you will be back soon. I’ll miss you and stay safe.
