Loss of a Friend

I went to college with one of the sweetest girls I knew. Her and I became very close in school. We always hung out at lunch together and after school together. We both graduated from college and I developed my own career and we drifted apart for quite a few years. Then, when my career path changed I moved back to the area and we were starting to develope a friendship again. She had her own family now and so did I. Then, when I least expected it she had an episode where she was unresponsive and her husband had to recusitate her. She was then kept in the hospital on life support for over a week. Then, she eventually passed away on life support. Her heart just gave out. When I found out what had happened it hit me like a ton of bricks, I couldnt believe how someone so young could be taken away from their husband and kids. It still baffles me, but I know that she is in a better place and that she is no longer suffering. I will always have her in my thoughts.

I hope she did sweetie!!! I hate that her life was cut so short!

I feel for you... she had a great friend in you.... I'm sure she knew that.....

I really appreciate that so much! It was very hard for me to deal with. But, I accept that shes in a much better place now.
