I guess… I can show you the note. Here, let me type it for you all, just to get this whole thing off my chest.
I’m sorry. I don’t want to leave, but I can’t see any other way. I have to get away from this place and what it makes me feel. When the doctors told me she didn’t make it, the joy I felt in life just seemed to go away. I haven’t smiled since then, and I know you’ve noticed.
Being in this house, this town, I can’t take it anymore. I want to smile again. I want to be happy, and the only way I can do that is by travelling.
I don’t want you to feel hurt or abandoned, but I’ve lost something I’ve been hoping for for so long, and now I have to forget it. I don’t know if I’ll come back; maybe I will someday. But I need time to heal.
I don’t have the love to give that I used to; it went away when I lost her.

… I’m not mad at her for leaving… I would have done the same thing… In fact, that’s why I’m mad… because she left me behind with the burden’s aftershock.
