Death of a Friend
October 4, 2008 10:45am CST
In the last week or so my son's best friend died. He was so upset about this and my sister in law sent this to him. He and I both found comfort in this so I though I would pass this along to anyone going through this same trial in their life. DEATH IS NOTHING AT ALL. I HAVE ONLY SLIPPED AWAY INTO THE NEXT ROOM. I AM I AND YOU ARE YOU. WHATEVER WE WERE TO EACH OTHER, THAT WE STILL ARE. CALL ME BY MY OLD FAMILIAR NAME;SPEAK TO ME IN THE EASY WAY YOU ALWAYS USED. PUT NO DIFFERENCE IN YOUR TONE; WEAR NO FORCED AIR OF SOLEMNITY OR SORROW. LAUGH AS WE ALWAYS LAUGHED AT THE LITTLE JOKES WE ENJOYED TOGETHER. PLAY,SMILE,THINK OF ME. PRAY FOR ME. LET MY NAME BE THE HOUSEHOLD NAME IT ALWAYS WAS. LET IT BE SPOKEN WITHOUT THE SHADOW OF A GHOST IN IT. LIFE MEANS ALL THAT IT EVER MEANT. IT IS THE SAME AS IT EVER WAS. WHAT IS DEATH BUT A NEGLIGIBLE ACCIDENT? WHY SHOULD I BE OUT OF YOUR MIND BECAUSE I AM OUT OF YOUR SIGHT? ALL IS WELL; NOTHING IS LOST. ONE BRIEF MOMENT AND ALL WILL BE AS IT WAS BEFORE. I thought this was perhaps one of the most comforting things I have ever read, I hope that you enjoy it.

my friend die, it was last week too. but no mater what i do i still feel the pain. i hope this will work for me but i don't think so... may be i need to see my spychologist again. i still haven't deal with people who die years ago now i am having trouble dealing with another one. first he took away the person i really love, then my foster perents, then her... i don't know if i can take this any more... i don't know if i will end up crazy or i will kill myself.
