I have been lurking here off and on since Valentine's Day when my H's best friend lost his battle with leukemia. H and I have known him for 25-30 years. He lived with us for 8 months after we were married and I think of him as another brother. H flew down to see him the day before he died. We were worried he wouldn't get there in time, but he did and they had a great visit.
This past weekend we attended the memorial service and a celebratory party afterwards. H's friend leaves a wife and a 9 yr old DD. They have an incredible circle of friends that will help supprt them through this next year. It was so heartwarming to see the caring and the connection of these friends.
My H is now grieving the loss of his best friend. However he doesn't talk about it, doesn't want to share. I KNOW his pain. My best friend died 10 yrs ago, very suddenly. I had not expereinced loss as an adult and her death hit me hard. I ended up seeing a grief councelor for 6 months, which really helped.
So I have been reading here as a method of grieving as well as looking for clues how to help my H with his greif.
