Dear Hawkeye,

Your first love… you never forget it, no matter how old you get. There a word for that, in Russian. It’s all one word, but roughly translated it means: neverforgotten. I am completely serious, even though it’s ridiculously funny. By the way, the direct translation of the word “suicide” from Russian, is “self-murder.” Sometimes they can be a literal people.
