In Loving Memory.

Sorry its been ages since I posted, but sometimes life decides to switch on you without notice. Sadly, one of my best friends, Greg, tragically took his own life this week. It has been hands down the hardest thing I have ever had to overcome in my lifetime so far. My grandpa passed away a few years ago from old age so that was hard yet understandable to percieve. But someone who I have known since the age of 7 and spent a year of college together dying definitely hit me hard. He was the nicest guy ever... from one look he knew if I was sad or mad & wanted to know everything {I mean everything} about my lovelife and the current "possibilities" in my life. In addition to that, we also would spend every summer together because his family had a cottage next door to where my family lives year round, so we have been close for years. It wasn't until Greg transfered to Miami University that our friendship got even stronger. Before I knew it, we shared a car together, went to every Miami hockey games together, and spent our weekends dancing at the bars.
Greg, Me, and his brother Jon
Once I heard his funeral service was going to be on Thursday of last week, I knew I had to make the trip down to Ohio. Luckily, I was surrounded by amazing friends and family who got me through the week and this weekend.
I'd give anything for just one more "hello gorgeous" text message or phone call. i miss you Gregory. I love that I can look out onto the lake and know that our "Boulder Lane Love" is forever. I will miss our high faves and yelling "short hair don't care." You made me laugh and smile everyday.
"There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live just a little bit better."

I'm so sorry to hear this!
He seemed like such a nice guy. I lost my Grandma last year but I have absolutely no clue on how to relate to this. I wish you the best in dealing with it, but at least you have your friends to help you.
Just keep remembering those good times :)

Oh honey, I know we don't know each other well, but my heart is breaking for you right now. I hope you can find a source of comfort in your friends and family and all the other people who knew Greg. I'll be praying for you!

Thank you both for your positive words and prays. Its little things like knowing that people who don't really know me that well are able to reach out. I really appreciate it, ladies. Thank you sooo much!

I'm sorry for your loss. This past year three students passed away at my school, and it was really hard for all of us. Stay strong, you're in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry for what you are going through. I lost a really close friend the summer before our senior year & I know what it's like to experience an unexpected loss such as yours. Things will get better though! Stay strong.
