My best friend Alex committed suicide last month. I felt extremely horrible that I couldn't help him soon enough. I got to talk to a HopeCoach, and she helped me a bunch. She told me to make a legacy for him, to find new friends, keep my head up. I'm starting on a scrapbook of Alex and me. I'm also able to talk to our friend Rich. I'm planning on meeting new people and creating new friendships. Alex will also be in my heart and on my mind every second of everyday. He wants me to be happy, so I'm doing that. I loved speaking with the HopeCoach I got matched up with. Thank you.
