Posted:just to say, I know exactly what you mean, about a month ago, one of my freinds that I'd known for 7 years died, due to solvent abuse. I hadn't seen him in a year or two, (I moved away from my home town a year and a half ago). The stupid thing was is that about a week before I got told the news, I was thinking about going to see him nex time I was down south. So I'm still going to see him nex time I'm back down there, but just to pay some late due respect.

Hugs to you,

other than that, I don't know what else to say

You take care of yourself

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Hi Girly, I'm sorry to hear about your friend and would like to offer my condolences. My school had a lot of problems with menigitis and one of my good friends died in 1996 when we were 14.

I hope something good can be learnt from this tragedy, life is too too short to be wasted

best wishes

Posted:Sorry to hear about such misfortunes esp. this time of year.I'm going to quote a Transplants song becuz I thought it had an important message about the loss of loved ones.From "Sad but true"
"for all the mothers who cried and the fathers who mourned,for every life taken there's another child born,it doesn't make it better and it doesn't make it right,I'M JUST THANKFUL EVERYDAY THAT YOU CAME IN MY LIFE"
Hope you feel better soon

Loss is a sad thing, although I believe in the after life. Your friend will be back, and you may even run into them, somewhere in time. Our paths cross so many others, and we learn so much from them. It is hard to let go.
I send Nothing but White Cosmic Light your way, May you heal and move on.

Posted:I am sorry for your loss, CPG. I, too, suffered the loss of a friend recently.
I last saw Teri at the Thanksgiving Day dinner my pirate reenactment group had at this restaurant by the harbor. There were about forty of us all in costume , swords and pistols included, all getting drunk and having a riotous time.
Then she disappeared and missed a rehersal. Then her body was found. She had been murdered.

We all have been saddened deeply and walking around like zombies. I find myself staring at the darkness, looking for answers. Our xmas "party" was a wake.

But I am more resolved now than ever to do everything I've ever wanted to do before die. I just came in from firebreathing with fire for the very first time. It was a symphony.

Posted:hey beautiful,
i know we have never met but i cried nonetheless when i read your post. all my love and wishes are with u. i recently realised on a major scale that we cant take life for granted and since then i have been making sure that everyone (including myself) knows just how much i love and care about them. this must be a terrible time for you
if only it can help others to make the most of the time they have.

love, kisses and magikal wishes....

Posted:I guess everyone has said it before me, but I honestly feel for you and hope that you feel better soon...
I lost a good friend of mine last year in wierd circumstances - it was been just over a year and we still dont know what happened. This has definitely made it a lot harder for me to cope with - I have so many questions that cant be answered!
From what I can tell from your posting it sounds like your friend passed away peacefully and that is something at least, you can be happy that he didnt suffer when there is nothing else to be glad about.
I lost another one of my friends last Christmas in a car accident and a third just a couple of months ago who was hit by a drunk driver - my friend was doing the right thing and being the designated driver for her friends on a night out.
When my first mate died, I thought I would fall apart, I missed him so much that it hurt to think about it - but my friends helped me through it and I can now honestly agree with the cliched 'You'll feel better soon'.....
Take care, if you need to talk, msg me

We all take different paths in life, but no matter which path we take, we take a little of each other everywhere...

Posted:Cutie Poi Girl,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss.I am sure your friend knew he was loved and cared for by all his friends and family.
I myself am not a stranger to the heart wrenching feeling of losing loved ones but i can tell you that little by little, day by day, you do begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel and start to feel better.
I believe in the after life and often sit in my room talking to my dad who passed away when i was only 9, the thought of him still being able to listen to me and be there for me when i really need him helps me to feel a whole lot better about losing him.
You are right about not taking people for granted, i try my hardest to always tell my friends and family i love them and to call them all up at least once a week 'just to say hi' in the hope that if something happens to them i will not sit there wondering "Did he/she really know how much i cared about and loved them?"

Take care and keep smiling
Sweet Pixie
