"Shay, you have always been my soul-mate and I want you to live life and know I'm always with you".
"I told you what was coming indirectly".
He told her she was an angel, and asked her "to let what we believe is his daughter to know much he loved her". That verse, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life", is among the most popular biblical citations, but could be construed to indicate that Hernandez saw himself as making the ultimate sacrifice for the good of his family. Tell me story fully but never think anything besides how much I love you.
The letter went on: "This was the Supreme's, the Almighty's plan, not mine!"
He ended the note with, "I KNEW I LOVED YOU = SAVAGE GARDEN".
Nearly as an aside, Hernandez puts the words "you're rich" in parenthesis, underlining them both, before ending the note with a song title: "I Knew I Loved You" by Savage Garden.
Days before his death, Hernandez was found not guilty in the 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

State prosecutors are hoping to use the letter to argue that Hernandez's murder conviction should not be vacated in the wake of his suicide, as it would "reward the defendant's conscious, deliberate and voluntary act", according to a court filing.
Hernandez's lawyers in his double murder trial have said he showed no signs that he planned to kill himself, and they have pledged to conduct an independent investigation into the death. It has not been determined if his heirs would be entitled to the proceeds from the pension as he is the first National Football League vested player to die in prison while his murder conviction was under appeal. Hernandez also wrote John 3:16 on his forehead, highlighted a passage in an open Bible and drew circular marks on each of his feet, all using his own blood, according to police.
Thus Hernandez telling his fiancee that she's "rich" in his suicide note could indicate that he expected her to come into some money following his death.
