I lost a friend but gained new ones!

So I hope everyone has been doing okay, I’ve been pretty busy myself. Last Saturday I went to a memorial for my friend who had recently died. And it was kinda hard when I found out that he had gone and I never got to see him before his death, I never got to say goodbye. It’s kind of a strange feeling knowing that somebody you’ve known and grown up with is now dead at such a young age, but we rejoiced in our memories that we had with him between our friends that were there and it was a good feeling knowing that there were other people there that cared about him just as I did. So the person that organized this memorial was his amazing girlfriend because my friend Tyler didn’t have a funeral so shout out to Daisy for doing such a wonderful thing! I hope my friend rests in peace and I’m sure he would be happy knowing that all of his friends were at his memorial in good spirits sharing memories that we had with each other.We listened to his favorite music and we danced and some people sang karaoke. It was one of the most happy upbeat memorials I’ve ever been to and I hope when my time comes people will celebrate me like they did my friend Tyler. But I also got to reunite with somebody I haven’t talked to in a very long time. This person cared for me throughout the night which made me really happy! We got to talk about things we did when we were younger it was like a blast from the past. I wish there were more people like this in the world someone that can make you happy and feel relaxed at the same time. It was like we never missed a beat. It was like we were never apart all these years. All in all it was a pretty good night getting to celebrate my friend and reuniting with people I haven’t seen in a very long time. After the memorial we all decided to go to a local pub And when we arrived at the pub I got to see a lot more of my friends that I haven’t seen since my injury or before my injury.! I didn’t expect the night to go like this and I didn’t know it was going to be so memorable! I will definitely remember this night for the rest of my life..I hope you guys enjoy this story and if you ever have a friend pass try not to focus on being upset- I know that sounds strange to say but you’ve got to look at the good things and celebrate your time that you had with them! So spend as much time with the people you care about the most while you still can! There is no time like the present….its a gift.

  1. JD, I’m sorry about your friend passing away. You are so right about how funerals and memorials sometimes enable you to celebrate and reminisce. So many times at funerals we say, why did we wait to get together until a funeral. I’m sure your friend would have been happy that you were all hanging out and remembering good times
