I Lost Someone In A Car Accident

I lost a close friend in a car accident. He was like a brother to me. We used to play at his tree house, and host sleepovers. On the morning of September 3rd, 2004, it was another day. I had dressed myself for school, and prepared for class. After a grueling day, I said goodbye to my friend. He had promised to spend the night at my house the following night. I didn't know that it would be the last time I saw him.

The following day, I recieved a call that brought my heart to a stop. My best friend had been killed when a vehicle ran over him, as he was crossing the street. I cried all day, and couldn't eat or sleep. He was young, and had wanted to pursue a career in journalism. Unfortuntly, his life was cut short. I became depressed, and my friends tried to help me cope with the loss. They knew how much he meant to me.

Thankfully, through their support, I managed to move on. At his funeral, I said a few words, and let him go. I wished it didn't happen, but at least I moved on and contiuned to live a happy life.

i am so sorry, my friend was killed in the same manner, he was 21

I lost my sister when I was 12 yrs old(almost 13) in 1977. I was scared as it felt like a nightmare happening then & would not want to relive it again. She was 8 years older than I & treated me very well as her Brother. I am glad you have a new best friend now & hope nothing bad ever happens to them. I will talk to you later, Dave & wish you a very nice day.<br />

I am having a great. Can you imagine how it feels to lost a friend at such a young age? I have a new best friend now, and always tell him to be careful.

You're very welcome, Dave. I hope you have a nice day today.<br />

Thank you for your support.

I'm very sorry about the loss of your friend,Dave. That must have been a terrible situation for you at a very young age. I'm glad that you have moved on with your life though & are now in College. I wish you the best.<br />
