I just got a call from my brother and he said that our mutual friend died. Apparently, my friend and another friend went to a bar in Canada and when they were leaving, my one friend hauled ass away and the other friend lost him. Well, he decided to climb a building at some point, fell off and died. Tragic accident, and my other friend is taking it pretty hard. Asking all the what if questions. It feels like a part of me died when I heard this. He was an excellent friend, and a great guy to have known. This is sad news, even for me. But to keep this a thread that other people can post on with out asking for sympathy, I have to ask if anyone else has lost a friend. Tragically or not, have you ever had a friend die? Personally, this is the first actual friend that I've lost. I've seen loads of people die, and even had two people in my graduating class die before I graduated. I'm not sensitive to death in the least, but this feels different. It's actually hitting close to home. I'm not going to be able to go to his viewing because I can't even take time off of work for it being that he isn't related to me and will most likely be viewed and buried in Pennsylvania and I'm in Arizona.
