Here's what I can say to you. Don't let it get you down. Don't get caught up in "drinking one for him". If you feel yourself getting depressed, get out of the house and do something. The cold facts are that people die for no good reason. Accept it.
1 ton tj on 40's - I'm sorry for your loss. If you need to chat let me know. I had a high school buddy die in my arms back in college from a tragic accident. I won't go into the details but it has been 20 years this year and every once in a while I relive that day. All I can say is through time you will learn to except it and know how to deal with it. I've also found that talking about it to my family helps me to deal with it so I don't bottle up my feelings.
