<BEGIN TRANSMISSION>


Mom, I love you. I love you so very much. We're in a bit of a situation up here and I don't know what's going to happen... I - I don't have much time, but I want you to know how much I love you... and that I'll always be with you.


Even with all that's going on I've just been thinking of that astronaut coloring book you got me. You remember? It was that one summer when we stayed on the lake and we'd - we'd take those walks at night and watch the stars. Then color them in the next morning together. I still remember taking turns on the rings of Saturn. You always colored them purple.


And I remember that you told me I could be anything I wanted to be.


And you were right. You were right, Mom.


And here I am. Now. Up with the stars.


I know this sounds crazy, but I'm right where I want to be. And I'm not scared. I want you to know that.


Look, Mom, I've got to go, okay? Thank you for everything you have ever done for me. I... I'm so grateful and - I... I wish... I wish -
