I am so sorry to hear about your friend. The only word I have for you is courage. I say this time and time again to everyone who has lost someone, even here on the board........It's not life that matters, it is the courage you bring to it. You will be in my thoughts.

I'm not very good at these things, however i believe the best way to cope is to keep him alive in your heart, thoughts and memories.

Very sorry for your loss......

HB,
Very sorry to hear that. I went through the same thing several times at your age. It sucks big time. I hate to say it, but it will take time to heal, and in time, you will know how better to manage that healing process. Very sorry for your loss, and keep your chin up.

Tommy,
sorry to hear about your loss, yes you must keep their memories alive in your heart and mind.
It is hard to cope with but time heals most wounds.

He's still your friend. I lost my best friend in a car accident when I was 18. I still ask him for a favor now and then. I think of him as kind of a guardian angel I guess. Keep your chin up.

It's never easy, especially the first time. Lost one of my best friends in college, over the summer while he was on vacation. Walking along the shore on a rock outcrop, slipped hit his head, and drowned we guess. Never found him.

It's been 14 years and I still remember exactly when I got the call. Polished off the better part of a 12pack staring at the TV. Hardest part of all was trying to be strong for his girlfriend. They were planning on getting married right after the next (last) year of college.

Hang in there. Time goes by and you get over it, even though you never quite forget. But that's a good thing. The first time will effect your entire life. It is then that you recognize that you're not indestructible, that life is precious and sometimes tragically short. It's one of life's lessons, there will be many.

As Don Aronow said, "Live every day to it's fullest for you give a day of your life to it".
