I just found out on Tuesday that one of my close friends, killed himself ...it hasn't completely hit me yet.. but I'm sure it will when I go to the visitation tomorrow, and the funeral on Saturday. He was such a smart guy.. Who loved his friends and family..

I am so incredibly sorry to hear about your loss. Allow yourself to grieve, however it comes and goes and however long it takes. Please know I'm thinking of you and am here if you need anything. Take good care of you.

Aww hun,
I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I bet he was a great guy. I know what you mean when you say that it hasn't hit you yet, it will hit you and when it does, you go ahead and cry. Just remember that its ok to cry and its ok to grieve! If you ever need my help or advice you can PM me.

I get where you're coming from.
Sorry to say that it will hit you.
It may hit you extremely hard and fast,
It may hit you softly, but repeatedly.
Either way,
You'll get through this.
PM me anytime.

Keep Smiling.
Remember, you are not alone.
Don't try to wake me up even if the sun does come out tomorrow.
Don't believe anything I say, anymore.
