How do I even know how to feel?

Saturday, May 26, 2012

I just found out that one of my favorite people from law school was killed in a car accident. I'm sitting here stunned. We were in the same class, and from the first semester had study groups together. We made a good team: I kept all the good notes, and he had a teacher's mind so would help me to turn that jumble of knowledge into cohesive statements of the law.

He hosted the first party for our class, and was the main impetus behind us being such a close-knit, supportive group--professors commented regularly on how we cooperated instead of competing. He was rude, obnoxious, and funny as hell.

After we finished school, he moved out of town and we lost track of each other, but I was just thinking about him the other day.

And now he's gone.

I can't say we were close, but we were friends. And even though I probably would never have seen him again, I miss him.

    To hear of the loss of someone you hold dear, is a shock to your whole system. It takes time to accept that he is gone from your life. I will keep you and his family in my prayers.

    You have my sympathy....and a lot of us know how this feels...to lose a classmate and person who was significant in our lives.... Little parts of ourselves go with them because they held our memories in them, too...and we grieve when the past has really passed. emoticon

    Sorry for the loss. Its still sad even if you have not seen this guy for a long time. Your heart still feels sorrow because he left an imprint on it. And because you know that there were people who must have loved him. May he rest in peace!

    Its avery odd thing to lose a peer and colleague. Reminds us of our own mortality. Reflect on you goodtimes together, call another friend who you lost touch with and file it under strange but grieving.
