The Moment That Lasted A Lifetime.
It was a phone call I never expected to receive.
One of my very best friends, who I had seen just weeks before, was gone. He lost his battle with depression and was gone far too soon.
I remember sitting with the phone held to my ear, unable to move. Unable to breathe. I couldn’t believe it. It couldn’t be true. He was still here – he had to be! How could the world go on without him?
For months, I did not know what to think or feel. The hole in my heart was indescribable, and bewildering. I did not understand the toll that depression can take on a person at that time – all I knew was that it hurt.
Although my pain was real and valid, there were others who were experiencing far worse pain than I. His sweet family – most notably his younger sister.
