Lee & Clementine.
My sweet girl,
I'm sick. I want to see you again, but I may not get the chance. If that happens, there are things I need to say to you.
Respect weapons, but don't be afraid of them. They're just things. They're just tools you can use. Use them to protect yourself and other people. When you aim it, mean it. There will be times where you have to hurt other people, be ready for that, but always as your very last resort. People are precious. Every person has thoughts and feelings that will never happen again in the history of the world. Every person is someone's baby. Treasure them.
Be safe. That means never assume you are safe. Lock doors and keep the keys. Know where other people are and know who they are and what they are doing. Know your friends, trust them, be good to them. Take care of yourself. Eat different kinds of foods. Not just chocolate bars. Sleep. You will learn it makes you feel good and makes you work better. You're so smart.
Read. Wonder things. Ask questions. You are never out of time to learn. I always loved how interested you were in the world. Don't stop being interested, my smart girl.
Don't despair. That means to never give up hope. You are such a wonderful girl, and you will become a wonderful, wonderful woman.
You will find little ways to make life worth while. You will be happy, even only sometimes, even for only a moment. People will love you. I love you. Even though I'm gone, I love you.
Thank you for being born. Thank you for saving me. Don't be scared. You can do anything.
You are going to beat this world. I know you will. You are smart, and you are strong, and you are so brave.
You're so good, my sweet girl, and I love you, I love you, my sweet, sweet girl, I love you.
