Hi Lynne, I'm so sorry to hear that.... My son lost his best friend last year. Although he did come home and grieve with his high school group (they were all devastated as were all of us parents) and speak at his service, he did have to go back to school and I think that helped actually.
He spent time with his friends, told them about Kellan and even this year when some of his old friends came to visit his new friends knew how important Kellan had been to him and his friends.
But the best thing was that he had a new life that he had created at school and I think it was better for all of them that they got to back to their new lives instead of being here.
So my advice I guess is to look to her new friends for comfort, time does heal although it took a long time for Sam. And I did cry with Sam on the phone, I didn't hold back how could we, he was like a brother to Sam and a son to me. Still tear up now just thinking about him.
take care, Laura
