Erick Endres, a gay man from New Jersey tweeted that he came home from work and found a letter from his youngest brother Sean on his bed. The tweet has been shared over 6.4k times and it shows how important the family support is.

Erick shared on Twitter the cutest letter from his little brother.

He said on the tweet: “I have something incredibly humbling to share with you. Earlier today, I came home from work and found a card in an envelope placed on top of my pillow with my name. Inside the envelope was a card/letter handwritten by my youngest brother. He knows and accepts me.”

In the letter, Sean told Erick that he accepts and loves him.

Prepare the tissues, you will need them.


I just want to let you know that I love you. We don’t have time in this life to be sad or hide who we really are because before you know it, it could be too late.

Love whoever you want, just love hard. I support and will support you in any way possible. I know we’re not the closest, but I just wanna let you know that I know and I don’t care because it doesn’t change you as a person.

So if you ever need to get anything off your chest, I’m right here. You don’t have to find your identity alone!

I love, I care, and I support you, Erick.

Love, Sean.

How cute was that? I’ve got something in my eye here.

Erick is a lucky one to have such an amazing little brother, who supports and loves him for who he is. So young and so sensible, that gives us all hope that this new generation will be free and respected to be whoever they want to be.
