    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.

    I had a friend die. He wasn't like everyone

    else. He cared deeply for everyone. I miss him so much. He was so kind, dorky, smart and handsome. He was very clumsy as well. Unlike most guys, he didn't view girls as sexual objects. He was in touch with his feminine side but wasn't gay. He was just so compassionate. We loved...

    My Best Friend Died.........

    And I'm still pissed at him because it was completely preventable - he died of cirrhosis of the liver, and could have avoided it by not drinking so much - he didn't even make it to 50. Another of the 1000 reasons why I don't drink alcohol.
