    My best friend died of pancreatic cancer almost

    two years ago. Her smoking, love of Pepsi and sugared coffee all contributed to her death at 61. For some of you, that may sound old; to me, it was much too early. She was my safe place; the sister I never had. She looked after me. I'll never have another friend like her...

    I lost my best friend of 18 years,

    After a long and devastating battle with bone cancer. If you look at my age you will realise that's pretty much as far back as I can remember. It has been over two years, and today I sobbed for well over an hour, it's not always like this, just sometimes when I'm off work. I...

    A Friend Who Did Not Judge

    My friend Tara Lynn Stoffel was the first person to talk to me once I moved from the big city to a small town in Illinois. She didn't judge me that I was going through an awkward stage and not caring how I dressed or looked. She was a tomboy at heart herself loving basketball...

    I Loved Hermide

    This is hard for me...I guess I just cant believe this is real at all. Hermide and I were truly the best of friends. I met her in 2003 through one of my roomates and we were friends ever since. I trained her in college every night because she wanted to lose a little weight...
