    We used to take violin lessons together... she was like my best bud there.... For many years I would go to her house and practice violin in her yard....

    I just found out on facebook she died... I am crying my eyes out here... I cant believe it.. the denial is still working up... I know this happens... but its the first time its happened to me with a childhood friend... I havent spoken to her in years, because she moved to Europe... but its still gut-wrenching

    *cries uncontrollably in anger*

    Recently, I had the opposite happen. I signed on to facebook and found my childhood buddy from Germany. He lives in Canada now. After so many years, all it took was one look and I knew it was my bud. icon_wink.gif

    P.S. I would cry, too. It's not just for the loss of your friend but also for the loss of your childhood. icon_cry.gif

    Very sorry to hear this. Trust me, it's easier that it happened this way. Watching my best friend die was one of the hardest things I've ever went through. It's hard to count your blessing at a time like this, but at least you were spared this horror. I hope you're able to process these difficult emotions quickly.

    I'm with you. I found out several people in my past have died. One this week as a matter of fact. A great guy and independent wrestler I met down in Florida a few years ago. He died of a heart attack in a ring last August. Plus a friend who I hadn't seen in a while. Five years later someone told me, "Oh, you didn't hear?" His name was Allen.

    I tracked down Allen's family up north and sent them some photographs I had taken of him. His sister really appreciated it. Still can't believe he's gone.

    Maybe you can do the same too. Contact her family and share in the loss, but mostly, share in the memories.

    I hung out with a great guy in high school. Funny, easy going, really nice dude to have as a friend. We lost touch after graduation, but i ran into him randomly a few years later in Austin. He'd grown up, buffed up, and looked amazing. My mouth dropped. He said its really good 2 see u. That was the last thing he said to me. He died a short time later in a terrible car accident on Halloween.

    I still think about him after 15 years. He died so young. He had so much potential and so much to live for. Whenever i get down on life i look back and wonder why im so down. At least i have the chance to live. He never got that chance.

    All I will say is that if a childhood friend that I lost touch with for many years died, it really wouldn't affect me that much now.
