She died completely unexpected on Monday. She was only 48 and went to sleep and didn't wake up in the am. My friends dad found her and they are all hysterical 😥. A extremely similar thing happened with my dad almost 11 years ago - he was 47, went to sleep and never woke up. Try both had substance abuse issues - my dad abused prescription drugs, her mom alohol and prescription drugs. My dads autopsy came back with high levels of Tylenol in his system but no prescription drugs and his death was deemed "accidental suicide." My friend said her mom was clean for a while but started again a few weeks ago then stopped cold turkey for the holiday and they think her body just couldn't handle anymore. It's so trrribly sad no matter the situation. Both of our parents were good, functional family people but had their substance abuse problem. So here's my question: I was close to their family for probably about 12 years and my friend is by fat my dearest friend. The viewing is today from 3-9. Do I stay the entire time? It's such a long time but of course I will stay, I just do t know what to do. Thanks.
