David,

We don't really know how to begin this. It goes without saying that we are both extremely concerned about you. We are ready to get you all of the help you need. Everyone is asking about you. We have tried several avenues of getting in touch with you. Nobody seems to know where you are. You are so loved and we don't understand why you would just disappear like this. We are trying everything we can to help you, but you need to help us if you can. Please call us.

Very Much Love,
mom and dad

David,

I like this picture because you are the one who taught me how to use chop sticks. Sounds so ridiculous now, what can I say? Little sisters need help with lots of simple things while they're growing up. This was from our trip to Chicago. We had such a fun time at the bean and the museums. I know we have many more great trips ahead of us.

How are you? I talked to John and he said that you moved out? Is this more than a retreat? He also told me about the stuff at the hospital. I'm sure it's tough now, but if anyone knows how to pull through it's you. Can we please plan a trip soon? Where can I meet you? I still want to go to the Yucatan when it cools down.

Just give me a call or send me an email and let me know what's going on. People (especially Mom and Dad) are really confused and they're sort of saying crazy things. You just need to check in and it will be okay.

Love,
Amanda

Brother, you gotta call!

Umm, apparently you joined a cult? I'm going to assume that this is not serious because my brother is a smart person and it don't make no sense that he would do something so dumb. Seriously, what the hell is going on? Do I need to come back down to Louisiana? Are you somewhere in Baltimore? Don't you go crazy on me. I need you. Just get in touch with me or Amanda and we'll figure this whole thing out. If you need help we are here to help you. That's what family is for.

I Love You,
Mike

David,

Have you read all of this stuff? Cretus is a cult! Get the fuck out of there! It's all fun and games to talk about this metaphysical philosophy shit, but you're not supposed to run off into the woods and join a goddamned cult out of the blue. You've been in this crazy spiral for the past year and every time you came back from New Orleans you looked like you were about to spin right out of orbit. I seriously think these guys are messing with your head and you taking off like this is definitely a red flag. This is getting too insane. You need to get out before you get in too deep.

All this negative shit that's been going on. It's exactly that, a bunch of bullshit. It passes. You'll get over all of it. The only way to do that, however, is to be in a positive environment. Not with a bunch of people dressing up like animals and doing god knows what out there. That's not science or religion, that's insanity. Have you heard of Heaven's Gate? How did that shit work out? Get your stuff out of storage, get your ass back to Baltimore, stay at my place as long as you need to and we'll get you back on your feet. You can do this.

Best,
Ben

David,

Someone told me you were back in Louisiana, and I got real excited until I heard you were joining Cretus. What are you thinking? Everybody knows those guys are crazy. I went to one of their shows a couple of months ago. Everyone warned me not to go, but I thought they were just joking around. That is some dark stuff. Evil. The music is good, but the people in that room were from a place I don't want to go to. They had people in there trying to pass out reading material and they wanted me to start going to meetings. I was scared man, that's the truth. The things they did on that stage I can't talk about. I haven't really been able to go to a show since then because people are twisted in this world.

David, I'm talking to you seriously here. Get out of there. You're too smart and you're too good for this. You know better. Don't let them change you. If you are reading this get out of there.

Best,
Tommy
