You ever had that one friend that knows all your secrets and all your desires? That never judges anything you do no matter how stupid it was. I had a friend like that for 28 years. Then my best friend died. Now at time I feel lost and out of sorts and just plain empty.I know that there are others around me. My husband, my mother, my children and the rest of my family. But sometimes I just want Larry. Don't worry, I was not cheating with my best friend. Larry is my brother. He wasn't the type to fix most things but he always made any situation seem not so bad.I miss him dearly.I try not to bring up his death in front of my kids and at times I think that I have put my husband through too much to talk to him. I can feel the hurt and anger building in me at times and I guess this is the only way to get it out. Thanks for reading this. respond if you'd like. I just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks.

Gee...sorry to hear that. It must be SO painful for you. :-(((( HUGS!!!! One friend that knows all my secrets and desires would be my hubby. My closest friends also know many things about me, though. I think you need time to just cry and grieve...but after a while you should know that you're not alone. It's such a HUGE loss for you and nobody can replace Larry...but remember that he's in a better place now. He's got no pain anymore...no sorrow... After you grieve, remember that you're loved...that Larry would want you to move on and be happy.
