It's horrible when bad things like that happen and i know how you feel Pocket!
My eldest cousin died when she was 23...she was walking down the street with me one day and when i looked back, she was lying on the ground.
My perspective on life is sometimes clouded on the way i am feeling....
The best piece of advice i ever recieved was from my great-grandad:
Your a long time dead....enjoy everyday as it comes.
He also said that try and enjoy things that happen late at night and in the wee earlier hours....you'll get plenty of sleep when your dead!
Good advice that has shown me things that i might never have seen!
