Blake - I am sorry for your loss. And I know it's cliché but how lucky to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. It seems your friend had a reason to be here on earth, to help you and others. He did well and he did good. Cherish the times you had, grieve for the times that you won't but never let what you had leave your heart. You will have him with you forever. And you can make him live forever too, by using his example and helping others when the time is right. Please find some comfort in that. I wish you Peace - John
