I found out one of my bestfriends growing up has died. He died on the May 22nd 2009... I found out May 26th.. I had been thinking about him the last couple of days. I hadn't spoke to him a good while.. but he was on my mind for some reason. I went to hes myspace to see what he as up too but then I saw R.I.P comments. I was shocked.. i couldn't believe it. hes dead?! but it's true. he's really gone. I am so saddened. he was only 21 years old.. i am not really sure how he died... but i think he might of took his own life. I went through all his top friends trying to find stuff out.. and there was a comment about him taking xanaxs but they said that he DIDN'T O.D.. so i'm not sure what happened. maybe he went crazy? i don't know... this just sucks. i wish i would gotten to see him again. I miss playing army with him. i lived next door to him for 10 years and now hes gone. i think its kind of weird how he was on my mind and then i find this out from hes myspace....like i was suppose to find out or something.. i wish i hadn't tho.... have you ever found out about someones death from online?

Yes, I had a couple of very close friends online that I'd known for years but never met. We'd exchanged emails and belonged to the same forums and it was devastating to me and all their other friends. I imagine it would be even worse had I actually met them, as you did. I'm very sorry for your loss. But he knows how you feel because now he knows all and is in a much better place. I know that's small comfort but keep him in your heart and do your best to live your life to the fullest. That's the best tribute you could give him.
