Upon confronting Noelle, Dee Dee learns that her husband has been a generous contributor and supporter of an LA-based LQBTQ+ organization. While going through his photographs, she also comes across a particular photo of Charles with another man while attending a party organized by the same organization. Since Noelle doesn’t discuss Charles’ sexual orientation, it is possible that nobody has a clear picture of his sexuality even if he is a queer individual. Since Charles has lived a parallel life, away from Dee Dee and Zoe, in Los Angeles secretly, it is clear that he had a secret and it can be that he was gay or bisexual.
Charles’ association with the organization could have been his way of spending his time with fellow queer individuals. He might have had an affair with the man in the photograph, which explains why he had a secret condo in LA. Charles could have been living with the unrevealed man at the place. Having said that, Charles loved Dee Dee and Zoe. That’s the reason why he expresses his love for them while he faces death at a short distance. But he might haven’t been able to hide his real sexual orientation and identity anymore. If that’s the case, it isn’t a surprise that he eventually distanced himself from his wife and daughter.

While Edward is with Lacey, the girl at the supermarket leaves a letter for Edward at John and Lacey's house. John picks up the same and tries, but fails, to figure out who dropped the same. Rather than keeping it for Edward to read, he keeps it in a box with other letters from all over the world that the 12-year-old has received. In the letter, the mystery girl may have revealed her identity to Edward. Because the only thing she talks about when she meets him at the supermarket is Jordan, it is safe to assume she is acquainted with Edward's brother.
The girl may have explained how she met Edward, most likely through Jordan, in the letter. If she knew anything about his late brother, she might know how close the two brothers were before Jordan died. Jordan could have told her how he had gotten his little brother back and had given up his admission to a school to be with him while he was homeschooled. The girl may have realized that Jordan is an important part of Edward's life, which is why she is particularly sorry for Edward's loss of Jordan as a result of the plane crash that also killed his mother and father.

Jordan's feelings for Edward may also be expressed in the letter. The girl must believe that her words will help him cope with his brother's death. However, John is unaware that the letter is not one of many that he has received in the name of Edward that may express the senders' sympathies to him. Edward may not read the girl's letter anytime soon because he hides it in a box, knowing that it will be too much for his nephew to read. Having said that, since John hasn't destroyed it, he may eventually read it. is a website that provides you with sport updates and Entertainment news to brighten your day.
