Not going to be an easy day

Today marks a year since one of my best friend passed away by a drunk driver. I miss him everyday but I know that he is watching over my daughter and I. He's also protecting us from all the bad things that could happen to us. Sometimes I think what if I went with him home. We were at a party with our friends and I wasn't ready to go so I stayed a little longer but what if I went and it took longer for us to get to the point he was hit. I know I could have ended up died as well but it's still hard to take in.  I miss his smile, laugh and just his voice. It's still so hard to take in you won't wake up and call and text him. Some days are harder then others and today is a hard day but I am going to do my best in being happy for him because I know he wants me to be. I think he's the or who helped me find CM and all my friends.

So sorry for your loss :( Ive never lost a best friend from death but I can imagine it is very difficult to get over. Just remember, like you said, he would want you to be happy.

So sorry Erin. I can not imagine what you are going through and I wish I could just hug you tight today. Try not to dwell on what could have been. He is your guardian angel now and watching over you from Heaven.

I've lost a few friends from accidents that happened to them.  One friend died in a training helicopter accident and the other got hit by a car while jogging down the road.  I miss them both terribly.  Whenever I think of them I remind myself they were good people.  They would want me to rejoice in the life they shared with me.  I know it's hard to accept death which means you will never see or hear from your loved ones again.  But, just remember or try to feel good about the wonderful life they shared with you.  Hoping you feel better today.

Sorry for your loss, as the years go by, all you can do is reflect on the good things you did together, try not to think about the other "if's" that may have happened if you were there.  You will through another day.
