    Not to death. I met her in college

    and we were as close as a man and a woman can be without being boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife. People would often think we were dating, but we weren´t. It was something more than that. We were brother and sister. She had many personal and psychological issues and...

    My wife and I had two great friends John

    and Jane (for anonymity). It was fantastic that we met them because they were also a Mexican-American marriage, were the same age, and had been married the same amount of time as us. We met them earlier this year. After a few things that Jane did that my wife and I deemed to...

    "Friends" actually. :/ I don't know what to do.

    v.v I lost 3 good friends so far. One to Suicide, One to a drowning because his boat capsized while he was working, and another last night because he got into the middle of a fight (he was trying to break it up) and got shot in the head. I feel sort of numb and depressed...

    I wish I would have said more at the funeral.

    I wish I could have honored his memory better, but I want to keep some of the memories just for me. Friends by blood.

    My friend Matt died last week of a drug

    overdose. I'd known home since we were 12. We went to high school together, played football and cricket together, swim, run, laughed, told outrageous stories to each other Matt was always a wild child. A risk taker. There were times I envied that. Not anymore. The shift from...

    Her Flame Went Out, She Didn't Die.

    I believe seeing death from, the last few minutes before the body gives way, are life-changing for many who witness it. In Hinduism, the body is put on a funeral pyre and it slowly reduces to ash. I find it a very violent way of the last rites taking place, so electric...
