why did you leave? I need you in my life. It’s so hard waking up every day knowing that I won’t see you today. Remember when we used to eat apple jacks after mom and dad went to bed because we weren’t allowed to eat sugar cereal? I miss that coop, I seriously do. I miss you. I miss everything about you. I miss sitting in my room and being able to hear you play your guitar while I did my home work. I wouldn’t have gotten through everything I’ve been through with out you in my life. Please come back, I can’t do this with out. I can’t handle mom and dad fighting constantly without you to make me laugh. This is way too hard to handle on my own.
Why do you leave for Iraq? I never wanted you go. The day you left I cried like crazy. I knew it would be so hard to get through your 10 month deployment but you gave me hope that It would be okay, I sent care packages and letters telling you about everything that was happening in school. It was my second year of college and I was taking all advanced classes, I was in love and I was flying high. Everything was going to be okay. Dad called me at around 3 am and I was still awake studying, he told me everything. He told me that there was an explosion and you were taken away and they did everything they could but that just wasn’t enough. You didn’t make it through that and my whole entire world stopped. I didn’t know what to do. I lost my big brother, I lost everything. We were so close and now you’re gone, and I will never see you again and that hurts me more then anyone could understand. I hope you’re watching down on our family, and I hope you know how much I love and miss you.
Bye Cooper. I hope you I see you again some day.
Love, Your baby sister Caterina. <3
