I was riding a public utility vehicle today from work to my home, which I often do on a daily basis. But today, it's something different because there was a guy there around teens or early 20's talking to the phone weeping. Since the vehicle wasn't very big I could hear what he was talking about. His girlfriend died yesterday. From what I have heard, she drowned while partying. Somehow she had been drinking and after around 20 minutes friends soon realized she was gone and then when they found her she was already dead. He wasn't with her that time. All throughout the ride, I was contemplating of what would have been if I were in his position. He said to whoever he was talking to on the phone that he doesn't know what to do. He was just riding the vehicle for no reason at all because he was really confused. I felt really sad for the guy. I never liked nor wished of losing someone dear to me through sudden death. Have a you ever encountered such an ordeal? How did you learn to accept it? I wanted to say something but I know it would have been weird because we're strangers, and I didn't really know what to say. Thanks for the responses.
