My closest friend.

I lost my closest friend today. Alcohol kept us apart, but we remained close friends. I will always be grateful for the love he showed me for 21 years. I hope he knows that. It's so hard. It's hitting in huge waves today.

Music helps me so I'm sharing my favorite song when I'm grieving.
<bgsound src="http://www.mamarocks.com/eagle.mid" loop="true">

Isaiah 40:31
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint."

ON EAGLE'S WINGS
Written by Michael Joncas

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
Who abide in His shadow for life,
Say to the Lord, "My Refuge,
My Rock in Whom I trust."

Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
And famine will bring you no fear;
Under His Wings your refuge,
His faithfulness your shield.


Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.


You need not fear the terror of the night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Though thousands fall about you,
Near you it shall not come.


Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.


For to His angels He's given a command,
To guard you in all of your ways,
Upon their hands they will bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.


Refrain
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a best friend to a drug overdose 20 years ago. We did everything together. I understand how you feel.
Heres a huge hug from me.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, MG, and with your friend and all who loved him.

I know that he felt your love for him just as you felt his, and that love and his memory and spirit will be with you always. May you take comfort knowing that today he rests peacefully in the arms of God. He suffers no more.

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides,
that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

~Kahlil Gibran~

Thank you all.

It's a lot harder than I thought it would be.

Huge painful waves. He was my home.

This too shall pass.

When one hurts we all hurt
I miss you my friend, you have gone from this world,
but our ties remain forever
For I have known you all of my days, and
will have eternity to spend together.

The pain I have in losing you will be in my heart for now,
For you are my friend, my guide.
Pain will ease as time goes on
and the deep deep hurt will subside.

I can find comfort in knowing we will be connected
in another place and time,
For we are kindred spirits, and love lives forever
Especially yours and mine.

So, go forth dear one and be completely at peace
For I will join you one day.
In the endless brightness of light and love
and our souls will shine and not stray.

Go in peace and love...I send my lovewith you
For You are blazing a trail
Of peace and truth and comfort and rest
And a friendship that will never fail.
~vmk

Peace to you, MG. I love you--

I am sorry for your loss.

Things will get better for you, just let the grief process run its natural course and stay around other caring persons while you embrace the feelings.
