It was especially weird when your dad and little brother walked over to mom and dad's house tonight and you didn't come with them. I wonder what you were doing while we were all there laughing really hard as Dad was being controlled by the tiller. Maybe you were there laughing too. I wish you had laughed louder.
Anyway, just know that it was weird and it will always be weird. Your absence is ridiculously noticeable on warm summer nights in our little hometown.
I really really really hope you're happy.
