    I had a friend Lou who got hit by a drunk driver

    and he sadly passed away. He was 19 and he was like an older brother to me. I still think about him every day, I miss him so much... He was always there for me, if I needed someone to talk to or someone to come pick me up when things got rough at home, he would be the first...

    When I was in second grade my best friend was

    sent away to a year round boarding school in England. I gave her mom letters to mail to her, but I never received any letters back. Many years later I found out she hadn't really gone to boarding school. She had died of cancer.

    You were my best friend,

    my soul sister and you were supposed to be my life long friend. I never thought the day would come where I wouldn't hear your voice anymore or be able to find comfort in your words. Never thought I wouldn't see you again or never be able to laugh so hard we can't breathe and...

    I had a cousin who was more of a best friend

    who died 2 and half years ago. He was only 19, I was the same age as him. He was more of a best friend then a family member. Even though at this point it's been a long time I still break down when I go for a walk in the woods or go fishing on my own. Moving on is the hardest. I...

    I have a story to tell

    but am not going to tell it. I am going to imply it only. I have experience with suicide at many levels. I am happy to be alive and enjoying the second chance that I have been given.

    I remember, you were always there, you were a family member, and the pain is too much too cope with. I used to dial your number and try to call you, even though you never had your own number, it was a number I made up, as therapy, I suppose? "This call cannot be completed...
