Sunshine, I too am so sorry for your loss. These kind of happenings seem to have no answers and only time will heal. Keep in touch...

Dear Flower I am so sorry for your grief. This happened to us 6 years ago. It is still a loss we never forget. All the sweetest memories for that precious life. Just know you are not alone. No one understands. It is a tragic part of our life.

Try to be there for her parents and her family. Knowing you share their pain is a comfort for both you and them. You can gather together your memories and cry together for now. You have a long journey of your own to go before you can be with her again. I believe we will be reunited with our loved ones at the end of this life. It is a comforting thought for me, which is why I share it with you.

Flower,

My best friend was killed in 1980. She was hit by a drunk driver right on her way home from seeing me when. I was young. It was awful. I visited her grave every year on her birthday and to bring her a yellow rose (her favorite) for years.

It is so shocking when this happens.

I feel for you. I really do. It took me a long time to deal with the grief. You may want to talk to a counselor.

My heartfelt sympathy for your deep, deep sorrow.

Love, P&L

Flower -

I have buried all but one of my lifetime friends. In fact, I "officiated" at some of the funerals because I am a chaplain, so it was expected of me. This included my only sister's funeral, 10 years ago.

Sorrow, loss and grief are a part of life. I think they form the dividing line between "carefree youth" and "adulthood." Until we suffer the loss of someone precious to us and weather that terrible grief, we do not truly understand the process of Life...and Death.

Remember that time does heal such deep wounds. You will never stop missing your precious friend, but Time does ease the intensity of the pain. You will not forget your friend. In fact, there will come a day when you can remember your friend, laugh over the good memories and wonderful moments you had together. Right now, you are raw with the grief. That is normal.

The parting is hard, but at least it is temporary. One day, you will see your friend again. Love doesn't end, just because the One we love has gone Home.

- Strong

I lost the love of my life a few years ago to a sudden, violent death, and used to think I could write the book on grief. Grief has it's own schedule, it will come and go whenever it wants and will pop up when you least expect it. I wasn't the type to find comfort that 'I will see him again'...I was completely devastated and didn't think I would survive it myself. My heart physically felt like it was broken, I would camp out at his grave site and it took me a good month before I started to function again as a human being...It took me an awful long time to "recover", I still have my days and my meltdowns but it does get easier to deal with time. I pray you're pain eases more each day.
