    I lost one of my best friends many years back and I have never allowed myself to grieve…I’ve never truly “dealt” with it. I lost him at 29 years old, to alcoholism. He died as a direct result of the drinking. He had cirrhosis of the liver which in turn led to full liver failure, shortly after.

    I’ve never gotten so close to someone…so quickly. We understood each other without saying a word at times. I am a RA (alcoholic and addict) myself. I am struggling with memories of him…the guilt, thinking I could’ve done something…he meant so much to me. My heart aches because he suffered so…and never beat the demon of addiction.

    I just needed to get this out and hopefully grieve, mourn and be able to move on from the pain in my heart.

    I miss you Daniel. I hope you have found the peace you so desperately searched for here on Earth. RIP my dear friend.
