So, last December my best friend's brother commit suicide. He was only only 24.

While it's been a really hard year for them all- with the holiday's coming up it's really hitting them hard- not to mention the 1st anniversary of his death. I have gotten several calls with my friend crying, and I just don't know what to say. I have been there for her and lent a shoulder to cry on every step of the way, and I just wish there was something I could say or do to help. I know I can't take the pain away- but something to ease it- or let her know that I still think about Justin and miss him too- he was like a brother I never had.

Have any of you been in this position before? Any advice? I would love to do something for her and her mom and dad- but I just don't know what.

Okay... I can't see the screen now... so I guess that's all....

Thanks guys...

When I lost my girls my friends got Stars named after them. It was the best thing ever to know that every night my girls would be shining down on me.

They did it at: http://www.starregistry.com/catalog/dspPro...fm?prod=starkit

There were a few friends involved so we got the ultimate package. I know there are other places also that do this. To me, I am so thankful my friends did this. We have their certificates hanging in our living room and I can see them everyday and whenever I go out at night I stare at the sky night knowing they are smiling down at me.

Also, if money is an issue you can buy a stuffed animal that is part of this sight, they are pretty inexpensive, $10 - $20. I found some at a local Hallmark store.

Saying things to a family in need is difficult. I know when friends are there just to listen to me rant and rave is enough. I don't expect anything to be said in return, just to know there is someone's shoulder there to cry is enough.
