    My best friend killed himself

    because he was doing drugs I should have told someone but the only reason I didn't tell anyone is because he said he would kill me if I did so I didn't and he was only 12 when he killed himself

    On Saturday it'll be a year

    since we lost him. I think about him all the time and wonder why at 28, his life ended. He was beautiful and kind. But something shifted, sadness took over, and in a blind moment a bottle of pills dimmed his beautiful light. I will miss him forever.

    My best friend died when we were 15 years old.

    He had leukemia and he died before I expected him to. Actually I expected him to survive, however, he did not make it a month after he was diagnosed. I miss him very much. We went through school together for 10 years and we were very close. I miss him so much.
