Goodbye My Friend


Today is not a day many of us are going to want to remember. Today the world lost a bright, fun, incredible friend. One of my best friends Adrianne McBride passed away today in a car accident. It's been an incredible shock and those of us who know and love her are trying to do the best we can. It's put into perspective how fragile life really is. I'm going to really miss her. I'll never be able to watch The Office, listen to Coldplay, order a double cheeseburger from Mcdonalds, or go out to eat at Chili's without thinking of her. There are so many things that remind me of her. It's hard to comprehend why it was her time to go when she was so young. But there are a few things I do know that will help keep myself, and many of the people who will miss her from getting completely discouraged. I know we'll see her and anyone we love that dies again. I know she'll still be able to live a good life on the other side. And I know that she is much happier now. We all have to die and I know the Lord has made it wonderful on the other side. It's just going to be really hard to go on without her. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family and many friends who are suffering right now. Adrianne, goodbye my dear, I will sorely miss you!! I Love you!

Megan,

I know you probably don't remember me. I heard the news today and I feel really awful. You were the first person I thought of. My condolences. No one should have to go so young.

I see that you're married though. All my congratulations on that.

Meg, that is so sad, I'm really sorry to hear that you lost one of your friends. But you're right, no matter how hard it is for everyone down here, she really is happy.

Meg, I do remember you!
Its kinda funny though, because moments after you posted your blog earlier, I came across it and read it, but didnt dare comment because I didnt think youd remember me. :)
Your post was actually one of the ones to inspire me to finally write something since Id been thinking about it. I also wrote mine when I was really emotional, and struggled to make it not so 'miserable' for everyone else to read too. Ive since gone in and changed and added more 'positive' things here and there.
Its hard because I really do have hundreds of amazing memories and stories to share about my time with Adrianne, but this is so unreal and so painful that its hard to stay focused on just the happy stuff.
Im so thankful that we had her for the time we did, and also for you and all her other loved ones who are sharing things and kind of 'reaching' out to everyone else who's going through this too.
Take care girl! I assume, we might run into you Thursday...

Im glad you were brave, unlike me lol, and commented on my blog!

That is so sad. I know how much she meant to you. I will keep everyone in my prayers.

Hello again Meg,
I made a blog for Adrianne
(http://rememberingadrianne.blogspot.com/)
for everyone to port their thoughts, memories, photos, etc of Adrianne.
Pretty much whet theyre doing on her Facebook and the Facebook page...There are so many people writing sweet blogs, and other tributes for her. So this can just kind of be a 'central spot' for everyone to share things.
I wanted to let you know so you could post things, and didnt know if you'd like me to post this entry.
...If youre interested, let me know. :)
