Have you ever lost someone?

I lost a friend a while back to muscular dystrophy. Its a genetic syndrome in which the person born with it, their muscles waste away until they die. So he had a shitty life throughout school in a motorized wheelchair and he eventually needed assistance doing everything . As the time came near, he looked like a skeleton, it was horrible. (Its always fatal because the heart is a muscle too). He got the disease from birth because his mother was a carrier (this type of chromosomal disorder is X-linked, and since males only have one X chromosome, its far more common in males) He was 22 at the time.. He was a sweet and kind friend who always cheered me up. When he could still use his controller, he was a gaming whiz; I believe he was the one who got me into Phantasy Star on the genesis all those years ago. I wasn't there in his final moments, and I'm not sure I'd have wanted to have been, but only to hold his hand.

Great grandmother and grandfather, and three of my best friends...Not humans but dogs.

But to be honest I've seen more death than a mortician but I'll leave that be for now
