That’s so sad..I’m so sorry for your friend.

I had a coworker that passed away last week from cancer. Fiance and I were arguing about stupid wedding things like table numbers. TABLE NUMBERS. Unfortunately, tragedies can put things into perspective.

I’m so very sorry. Something similar happened to a former boss’s young wife. She was a similar age. Hugs if you want them.

I am so very sorry for your friend’s loss, and for your loss as well. She is very lucky to have a close friend like you to help support her through this terrible time. This underscores why we really have to live everyday to its fullest and not let little things get us down. I hope you all are able to move forward and find peace, even though right now it must seem so hard.

I am sorry for your friend. I went through the sudden loss of a long term significant other at a very young age as well, and it it really is a place most never think they will be at that age. Sometimes life deals real shitty cards. I had an acquaintance who lost her long term partner, and brand new husband, on their wedding night in one of those “fell asleep and never woke up” sort of incidents. Like I said, sometimes life deals shitty cards.

Be there for your friend. It is actually good you are cognizant you can’t put yourself IN her shoes, but be there as she figures out how to walk in them herself. It will take time.

Oh my goodness, how heartbreaking! I’m so sorry to hear this.

I have a friend that was widowed very young, as well. My best advice is to just be there for her. Don’t wait for her to ask. Take her food. Sit with her. Listen to her. Let her cry on your shoulder. My friend lived on the other side of the country, so there wasn’t as much that I can do, but just knowing you’re there for her is comforting (from what my friend said).

My heart goes out to your friend.  The world is not equiped and no one is ever prepared to be a “young” widow.  I was widowed at 30 and none of my friends could relate at all.
