Sorry for your loss. Sounds like you were a wonderful friend to her.

Hopefully the pain of loss will lessen with time. And you'll still have many fond memories of the times you had together.

I was listening to Johnny Reid while on the elliptical today....this track always grabs me, and perhaps it's one you might enjoy, or draw comfort from:

That's a very touching song. Thx.

It's cliche, like "It's a Wonderful Life", but one doesn't realize how many lives they touch until they are gone.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. It will take time, but eventually you will be able to sort thing out. The loss will always be there. Just take little steps for now.

I had the sad task of going through a box of Christmas decorations and having to donate them to Goodwill. It was a little heartbreaking as in Jan, my friend was so excited about Christmas 2011 that she stocked up on those 75% off bargains in January for this Christmas. Of course that will not happen.

Interesting, I've noticed that some things which bring memories are very difficult (such as the decorations, or seeing an old Easter card from 2006). Yet other things, like using a fleece blanket that she gave me, brings about comfort and not sadness. I suppose it's the feeling of not being able to share something again in the future vs acts of love in the past.
