Re: my best friends dead
The loss and pain that you are experiencing now won't go away. It will lessen with time and you will get to a point when you can think of him and be happy for the moments you two had together.
For now you will just have to be strong. Do not avoid them, they are experiencing the loss and the pain too. You are both in the same boat. Maybe you will all give each other distractions so it's not too painful all of the time. Yes, you will be reminded of him throughout your life. But talk normally with his sister. Chit chat about light hearted things like sport, school etc. 10 is not that young and she will understand the situation. Just try to be natural. I know it's hard. But you have to be strong.
