    I lost my best friend of 42 years two days ago, it was a sudden death and totally unexpected. He was found dead on the bed when I went to wake him up. He usually sends me a chat every morning about 7 to see if I am ok. His body was frozen, he has been taken to do an autopsy to find out the reason of his death. I am completely heart broken and in great pain. We practically do things together for 42 years. We have made lots of trips with his dogs and my cats. Of course we argue at times, but the good times outweigh the bad times, no doubt about that. I have a friend who live with us but he works daily. My deceased friend and I own a business together and we both work at home. So basically I am very isolated in the day time. He has 3 dogs and I have been with them after he was gone. I know they missed him because they kept looking out the window and door to see when is he coming back. They have stayed in his bedroom for the last 2 days and rarely come out. I hate to leave them alone. I tried my best to comfort them, at the same time, tell myself I need to be strong for my deceased friend and his dogs. But it's so hard to do and I am really in big pain. I have done some research for therapy, but haven't decided if I should or not.

    I am completely at a loss.

Now, please take care of yourself and also the animals they need your attention maybe more than before.
