    On another forum that I frequent I've made a few close friends, especially when I broke up with my ex.

    One of these friends is a lovely guy who really helped me through my break up, he's a complete sweetheart. Either November or December of last year his girlfriend of a couple of months proposed to him, and he then took her to New York and proposed properly at Christmas. This new gf of his is absolutely lovely, and every time I spoke to him (and sometimes to her through him) they were both so happy!

    I had a text today from one of my other friends, who I'm also very close to from the site, saying she couldn't believe what had happened. I text her saying that I didn't know waht she was talking about and she rang me.

    Apparently his gf was in a car accident on Friday and died. I went to work to keep myself busy, but they sent me home (Mondays I do something in which if I make a mistake, it costs us money). I can't get hold of him, and he hasn't told anyone else yet that we know.

    I'm so worried about him, and so upset about her - she was so lovely and young.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friends girlfriend, that's really so sad.

    I hope you manage to get hold of him soon, though I can understand why he'd want/need to 'hide' away for a while.

    My heart goes out to all concerned

    Sparkle - sos orry to hear about your friends girlfriend. I know you must be worried that he has not contacted you - but everyone deals with grief differently. I do hope he contacts you soon and he is ok.

    Thinking of you - take care and don't forget you can always come on here and share if you are feeling low. (((hugs)))

    Thank you all for your support.

    I'm talking to him now, on MSN (he lives on the mainland, I don't. Probably easier then actually talking at this point).

    He's so broken up. I just want to fix it all for him, but I can't. All I can do is be there if he needs me, and then all I can do is listen.

    It's so heartbreaking having someone you care about go through something like this.

    What a horrible thing to happen. Im glad youve got hold of him Sparkle, youre doing the best thing just now, being there for hiim when he needs to talk. He'll probably find talking to you a great comfort, sometimes those closest to us are just too close and we need someone who cares but is a step back.

    Thinking of you and your friend
    *HUGS*
