8 Years...

Eight years ago yesterday I lost a friend.

My friend Anthony was killed in a car accident while driving to work.

It was the first time I had ever experienced death that I was old enough to understand.

It was my first time experiencing heartache.

I remember the day vividly. It was a snowy Sunday morning. Nothing had accumulated yet but something just went wrong. I still think of him every time I pass that stretch of road. After he passed I have a debilitating fear of driving in the bad weather. Every time snow is forecasted I get horrible pains in my stomach.The fear is sometimes paralyzing. I think of him often. I think of his twin sister and his family often. He had a great smile and was kind in every way.

He is missed by so many.

Eight years is far to many.

23 forever.

Rest in Peace friend

This is a beautiful post, he's a pretty lucky guy to have you, still here, with him still in your heart. I'm so very sorry for your loss, and while I hope that time heals the pain, I hope the memories you had with him don't. :) Love ya lady!

Sorry for your loss, I can imagine how hard it must be to have his death associated with something you can't control.
