I second this. This forum has been instrumental in keeping me 'normal' in my daily life. I can mourn, cry, relate, empathize, grieve, and remember my friend with people who understand here. It is both soothing and cathartic. I can go home and have my social life and go to work having unpacked my feelings in a healthy way, and I thank you all as well for that.
I hate that this is how we found each other, but I am grateful.
