I Have A Friend That Died

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,020 People

    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 saw this today and It made me feel kind of.

    .. happy for a minute I thought I would share. A lot of people say "oh don't worry you will see him again someday, he will be waiting for you on the other side" I'm not sure I believe that, but this makes sense to me. You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the...

    I Don't Know

    We met when we were four. He was my first "boyfriend", I was shy he was not. I couldn't easily make friends so he let his friends be my friends. We were best friends. I spent so many weekends at his house with his older brother, him, his younger brother and his mum and dad. I...

    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 Lost My Best Friend

    All my life, I've had difficulty in making friends. So, when I did make an actual friend, I cherished that friendship. My friendship with Ron was probably cherished more so than any other friendship I have had. On November 1, 2010, I lost my best friend and am still struggling...

    She was found dead in her bedroom at 4am

    yesterday. No news yet with regards to the cause. She was one of those crazy party girls. But there was something wrong. For as long as I'd known her she was almost always drunk and/or high. Even sometimes in school. And when she got drunk, she'd get WASTED usually...

    My friend April passed away a couple years ago

    from cystic fibrosis. My parents didn't tell me for months after, and I wasn't able to go to her funeral. I miss her to no end, she was with me in the hardest time of my life.

    During my teens, I spent a lot of time on the

    streets to get away from home. It didn't take long for me to affiliate myself with other kids that were like me. It's amazing how much trouble you can get into so quickly when you're around others like you who hate the world with the feeling of nothing to lose. I grew up in a...

    and many relatives, plus my dad. The first 2 friends died from a drunk driver when I was 7. Another passed away from brain cancer, and the other passed away driving to fast on a mountain road. All I know is that the hardest was when I was 7 and after that, I was sad, but...

    I lost my 25-year-old son

    and best friend to suicide on June 2. It came as a complete and total shock to me. I have learned a lot about suicide and losing a grown child in the five months since his death. I am forever changed because of this experience.

    Her service and burial are in two days. It's so hard to even grasp the fact that she's gone from this world. She was one of my closest friends. We went through elementary, middle, and high school together and we had so many fun memories with each other. So many inside jokes. So...
