There are certain people who've been in your life forever. You don't even know when they entered your life but you know that they are a permanent part of your life. If you look back at your life, they have been a part of every important event. They are more family than most of your actual family. They've been with you during the highest highs and the lowest lows. Any occasion is incomplete without them.
How are you supposed to go on without them?
How is the void created by their absence ever going to be filled?
The only wish is that they're in a better place now.
The only solace is that they're free.
