    Hello

    I know this sounds a little far fetched for a student room but as I'm a member here, I thought I could turn to you guys to give me some advice.

    My friend who I have known since I was a child was shot to death yesterday in his car.

    I hadn't seen him for a year due to me moving away to University. We grew up together, I met him at playgroup and we went through all of our school years together and after school, through college and then when I went to Uni we would speak now and then but we had drifted apart.

    I feel absolutely awful, I cannot stop crying, I just can't believe he isn't here anymore and it feels as if someone has ripped my heart out.

    I can't believe this has happened to him, especially someone I was close to. Apparently, so I have been told by his Brother, he was shot in his face, in his car.

    Could anyone offer me some words of advice?. I have never lost anyone close to me before and I don't know how to deal with it.

      :console: I'm really sorry about your friend, I haven't lost anyone like that either so I don't cant say much..I think it's gonna stay with you for a while, but eventually try and concentrate on something else like a hobby/sports/activities anything that takes your mind of this...Your friend would be happy if he saw that you're doing well:hugs:

      I'm sorry for your loss
      Normally, people will mourn a lot after the event happens but it will lessen as time goes on.
      I think it will help if you go to his funeral.

      sharing memories of him may help, especially with people who also knew him.
      everyone grieves differently, :hugs:

      Let time heal your wounds. In the meantime, try to distract yourself in order to not think about it too much. I am very sorry for your loss
