1. Very sorry for the loss of your friends. I had three friends die unexpectedly in a 9 month period and the grief was crippling to say the least. I felt like I could picture your friends in my head as I read about their traits and characteristics. You described them well. Thanks for sharing.

      Kristi, Its still a shock these friends are gone, even several years later. So sorry for your three friends as well. Nine months is a very short time frame for that kind of loss.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your friends. I lost a good friend several years ago to a quick illness that she just never recovered from. It’s a shock to lose anyone but losing someone who should have many years left is even more so. It certainly changed the way I view life and birthdays.

      Shelley, My female friend’s passing was especially shocking, happening on a beautiful September day. She was at the wrong place at the wrong time. You’re right, these things make us look at our lives differently and see how fragile they really are.

  3. I am so sorry for the loss of both of your friends. I lost a dear friend in June – suddenly to an accident. It’s jarring and surreal. Agree – it shows how trivial the daily trials and errors of life can be and yet that is part of living. I wish you solace.
