I'm sorry for your loss. I too lost my best friend. He was hit by a car on New Year's Eve and died just 5 minutes before 2007. He was sixteen and he meant the world to me. Not one day goes by without a thought of him in my mind. Today is his birthday.. he'd be seventeen and my emotions came rushing back. For a moment, I thought to myself, "I think I can get through this." After today, I don't think I'm really ready.. I don't think I realized how much this hasn't sunk in yet. I miss him so much and I'd do anything to see him again, but life moves on.. that's just how things work and there is nothing any of us can do.

mh I also had a car accident on the july 2nd 2006 where me and my boyfriend almost died. <br />
I hope you will be fine, best luck to ya *hugzz*

In the past 12 months (before July) ,so now, I guess 13 months, I lost my only brother to cancer. A few days later a cousin died. Less than two months after my brother died, my Mother unexpectedly died. It was a shock to us all !<br />
My Mother and I were extremely close, like you and your friend. She was my best friend and confidant. We visited everyday....<br />
You just do the best you can. You have to try and be strong for your family and your friends and even your pets, if you have any.<br />
I didn't even speak hardly at all for days after my Mom passed and one of my dogs started to become ill. When I became aware of it , I started to talk again as if I were happy and play with the dogs. She snapped out of it and got better.<br />
I was speaking to a cousin of mine's wife , who lost her son in a terrible accident at a rock crushing plant 5 or 6 years ago. We were speaking after the funeral of another cousin of mine who had passed away in the same town that my Mother lived in. Anyway, Kathy asked me how I was doing , I just shook my head and smiled.... She said , I know , you just put on a brave smile for everyone and keep all the other in a little box and then when you are all alone you can take out the box and open it up.<br />
That's what you have to do , for the one's you love and for the one's that love you.<br />
Take care... I like to think of the quote that <br />
Patsy Cline's Mom had put on her grave...<br />
"Death cannot kill what never dies: Love "

They do it because what are the options? His little girl will learn from those who loved him what a special,dad,friend,brother etc. he was ,and I pray his parents find peace sharing the years they had with him and the wonderful gift( his daughter) he left behind.And his girl friend knowing that they had what some people never find, I lost my husband to cancer 2 yrs' ago, and today and everyday I can smile because we had each other for as long as we did . he is in my heart and will reside there for ever. I pray you can find comfort knowing this man called you friend. God Bless
