Unhappy Only 17 - April 18th 2009, 01:40 AM

My friend, Jeremy, died early this morning. He was just 17. He taught me all my chem for the last 8 months and he was my lab partner. He was in good health. Just yesterday he recieved a first place medal for track. And now he is gone.......

Hun i'm so sorry that you lost him. It's a hard thing to have to deal with. I lost a good friend and classmate when he was just 17 too. It will be rough to get through, but one thing i learned is that he will never truly be gone. He is a part of so many of mine and my friend's memories and he had an effect on all of us. Your friend's spirit will live on.

I hope ur okay right now and if u need to talk hun, pm me.
<3 emily

I'm so sorry, it's terrible to lose somebody close, and in my opinion I think it feels even worse when they are so young. In feb. I lost such a good friend of mine just a month after she turned 17. It felt terrible, and sometimes still does. Like Emily said, his spirit will live on.

feel free to pm me <3

Hey Kelsey,

I'm so sorry that you lost your friend. It's easy to feel alone after something like this. I want to remind you that you are not alone and that you can make it through this. I lost on of my friends when she was 16. It was sudden and unexpected. I know what you're going through. Everything you are feeling right now is okay. Let yourself be angry, hurt, confused, upset, or any other emotions you are feeling. After something like this happens you can't be to hard on yourself. Give yourself time to grieve. Keep him alive in spirit. I am here for you if you need me. Take care and hang in there.

Lots of love <3 Mimi

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling flight, I am the starshine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I do not dieI sent this to you in chat, remember your friend will always be with you, in every little thing. They will always be there xx
