Hello, I have been bestfriends with my bestfriend for 8 years and have been living with him and his family (mum, dad and older brother) for the past 2 years and consider them to be my family. Last week my bestfriends brother hung himself on the tree in our back garden, his dad found him and his brother tried to bring him back to life but it was too late. My heart aches for my bestfriend and his parents, this house feels haunted somehow. I understand grief stays with us forever sometimes and it’s the price we pay for love. If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it. I haven’t stopped hugging my bestfriend, I constantly tell him how much I love him and that I will always be here for him.
