I'm sorry Molly, I wish I knew something to say that would help, you already did the thing I was going to advise you to do. You told him how much me meant to you, and how much you would miss him. But he seems to want that, so I don't know.
"i wonder what they will say when they see me like this"
I don't get that though, if he's gone, how will he know what other people say or do?
Is there any way to get him to realize how amazing of a person he is?
