I am so sorry about your friend.
DH and I are over 60, and we have lost a number of our friends, our age and even younger. My daughter died when she was 25. On her birthday, two months before she passed, she got to go see Fleetwood Mac.
We never know...I say just live your life while you can, and take time to smell the roses. And remember...what goes around, comes around.
Your friend will always be alive in your memories, and there will come a time when that comforts you.
Here's a hug...Connie
We get by with a little help from our friends
