I lost my husband (my best friend) a month after I lost my dad this has been the hardest year of my life. My husband Steven had Cystic Fibrosis and my dad had liver cancer both were the greatest men and I miss them terribly. My dad died Feb 13th 2011 and Steven died March 31st 2011 two days before his 36th birthday. I feel so empty and don't think anything can fix this.

how many best friends do i have to lose? :( i dont understand how one person can be put through so much loss. one of my best friends' funerals was just yesterday. she was only 20 years old, engaged, and a mother of a 2 year old. before her, another amazing very close friend passed away, she was 18 and died of cystic fibrosis. my last year of highschool, a friend i went to school with passed away immediately after giving birth to her baby. before her, a great friend i had known since i was 6 passed away on christmas day at the age of 14. before her, my neighbor's house burned to the ground with my very close friend's mother inside. even before that, my cousin passed away at the age of 9 from cancer. she had suffered so long :( and even before that, my best friend when i was 6 suddenly died of meningitis. i just dont understand what the meaning of all this loos is!!!!!!!! HELP!!

I lost my best friend of 28 years in January and I have not truly accepted it or found closure so I think about her every day all day. If we didnt see each other we would talk every day for at least two hours. I have yet to remove her number from my cell phone.. She was like a twin sister to me so when she died its as if a piece of me died too. Will the pain ever just ease down?

I lost my best friend June 17, 2009. I am still in disbelief. We were best friends for 39 years and met as first semester freshman roommates in college. Our children are just like cousins. They love each other dearly. My best and dearest friend died of breast cancer 2 weeks after her 57th birthday. I also lost my husband almost 15 years ago. Joyce and her husband and family lived outside of Boston and was at my house less than 3 hours after I called her to tell her the news. When she came in the door, we cried for quite some time. Then she stopped and told me that she would stay with me until I told her that it was ok for her to go home. In our 39 years of being what we used to call "bestest buds" we never had a fight. We always talked everything out. She had lost both of her parents by the time she was 28 and felt like an orphan. But, we were as close as any 2 sisters could be and I was there for her. It was so terribly frustrating to not be able to help her as she slowly lost a courageous fight with breast cancer. Honestly, I can't accept the finality of this.

I'm at work and I had to get it out. Lately i've been wanting to talk to her SO BAD! My bestfriend passed away on 9/9/09 and at times it still feels so unreal. I feel like nobody understands, like i'm alone, like...... I don't even know how to sum it up in words!!!! 25 years old, married with 2 children, a beautiful spirit and she's gone..... FOREVER! We have been bestfriends since the 6th grade.... INSEPERABLE. We cheered together, coached together, laughed and cried together..... EVERYTHING. I was in the delivery room with her when she had her first child, my godson. I missed her wedding and she forgave me and attended my college graduation not even a month after. At times I think it would be easier if it wasn't so sudden. She went to sleep on Tuesday and never got up that Wednesday. God MY HEART HURTS! We started having girls day outs once a month together, we started selling Avon together. GOD IT HURTS!!!!! I still toss and turn and have sleepless nights at times. My world has changed and I feel like people just expect me to be "better" when at times I feel like i'm losing my mind. Her birthday is next month on the 9th..... Man I never wouldve imagined having to live the rest of my like without her. We r so young. Who am I gonna call when I find Mr. Right? Or when he proposes and I find out im pregnant? SHE IS SUPPOSED TO STILL BE HERE...... This is the worst pain ever.... I just had to vent a little bit

I lost my best friend of 20-years on 2/4/10. It was sudden and completley unexpected. She was 32, a wife and mother of a 3 year old little girl. As of right now, they still do not know the cause. She was more like my sister than my friend. I have never had someone in my life who loved me as unconditionally as her. I have other friends but I know I will never have another best friend again. I was fortunate that I knew how much she loved me--she told me all the time. I saw her body at the wake, spoke at her funeral and still it doesn't feel real to me. Is this normal? I still don't feel like this could have happened. I have never experienced a loss like this before and am thinking it still hasn't set in with me yet or I would be hysterical. Everything reminds me of her. We were supposed to go to the movie, Valentine's Day tomorrow. We planned this 2 weeks ago and had no idea she wouldn't be around for it. One of the hardest things for me is that talking to other friends and acquaintances makes me miss her more because it's just not the same. This might have been easier for me to deal with if she had been sick and I could justify losing her with the fact she wasn't in pain--she WASN'T in pain and there isn't any kind of a blessing about her death. I just don't know how I am going to live the rest of my life without her. It's not fair.

Jeff, I've lost my best friend too in August of 2009, so I know what you are feeling. Something you can do that eased my pain was create a special photo frame of him of all his life pictures..... I had to shop for her funeral clothes before she passed and got her approval for each item while she was in the hospital! She had asked me to do this as she felt her mother and family would not respect her wishes....All thru this I cried while shopping for her final resting clothes and kept asking god, why did she choose me to do this shopping? This was so emotionally draining that I really wanted no part of it, but every time I went to see her, she would ask me again, until the day came that I said, ok, I would do it. At the time I felt that this death coming was totally uncalled for and why would god take such a wonderful person, that truelly wanted to live? To this day I think of our last phone call the day she passed, we talked and cried about how she didn't want to die but her body was weak.....She passed 1.5 hrs later, I cried so hard that day, I fell asleep for hours, as I wasn't sleeping good for the whole 3 weeks that she was sick....
One thing that I kept doing was writing a letter to her after she passed and wrote journals of all the things that I would ask her if she was still here. This helped as I had alot of unanswered questions, and I will never know the answers but it helped to put it in writing. The pain we go thru is very tough and trying, but try for the sake of yourself and others around you..... It does get easier with time, just knowing that she isn't suffering no more helps me understand why god took her at such a young age, 41. Take care and write about your grief, it helps!

Can someone please tell me what to do to ease this immense pain I'm feeling. My best friend in the whole world, Justin D. Avery, was in a car accident on January 13, 2010, and he passed away on the 14th. He was only 26 years old. He was one of the best people I've ever know in my entire life. A very caring, and loving person, who had a zest for life unlike any I've ever seen. He was not only my best friend, but in everything else but blood, he was my little brother....and I don't know what I'm going to do without him. I keep waiting for my phone to ring and it to be him...I'm so lost....and I don't know what to do for the pain.....What can I do?

I lost my best friend and another close friend within a year, plus several other previous co-workers. It's really bothering more each time and I need to talk to others who have experienced this.

Thanks for your support. I have been having strange dreams. Last night I dreamt that my friend had died in a car crash. But, she didn't know she was dead. We were racing to tell her before she saw it in the paper. I woke up, and when I remembered what the dream was about, it really spooked me. As the holiday season draws closer, I'm feeling all these losses even more. I will be lifting your situation up in prayer. I live in NE Ohio. Where do you live?
