Default Lost a good friend today.

A dear friend of mine passed away. She was only 54, but in the last few years, had decided that alcohol would cure all of life's woes. It finally caught up with her. She was such a beautiful and brilliant person - a kindergarten teacher until a few years ago. She took a sabbatical from teaching and proceded to drink herself into oblivion. She hid it from everyone until two of our friends went to her home and found her in a coma. She has been going slowly downhill since. I have known her for 20 years and I can't help but feel what a waste. The world has lost a beautiful soul and I have lost a dear friend.

Wow, Nan, I'm sorry, that's so sad.
I've lost two BIL's to alcoholism.

Dearest Nan, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. We all have too few dear friends and family to lose them, particularly to such a reason and so young. Life is so difficult these days that I can certainly understand people seeking solace. . .unfortunately, too many turn to drugs or alcohol instead of friends, beliefs (whatever they may be) or counseling if necesssary.

I vow to try to remain more vigilant in an attempt to be aware of my friends' real needs. Be well and strong, sweeheart and know that your friendship probably sustained your friend, at least to the extent it was possible. My thoughts & prayers are with you and your friend & her family and other friends.
