LONG:We need some Prayers this way please!

Okay, so where do I even begin... Last month I decided to go home (Michigan) to SURPRISE my best friend Jenny for her 22nd birthday. A big part in my decision was that her and my other best friend are moving to another state to open some stores for their work in the summer and I am moving back to MI earliest is late August- which means this was the last time I will see them for a while! So I got into town and everything was great. I got in on Saturday the 26th, which was the day of her party bus... everything went on like it always does, Jenny was shaking when she saw me.. "BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER" :) her words....


fast forward to Monday the 28th.. (Which is Jenny's ACTUAL birthday) I had planned, since I leave on Tuesday, to spend the morning with my mom then meet up with Jen to hang out before all of the friends took her out for dinner. Well, as I was trying to get ahold of her in the afternoon, she never answered or called me back, I went onto FB to waste time... alll of a sudden her away message is "RIP Kris, I will always love you".... background on that. Kris is her boyfriend of the last five year that was deployed on his third deployment to Afghanistan.


Kris passed away the day before Jen's birthday and she got the phone call from his parents the morning of her birthday. As you can imagine, it is always hard to lose a loved one, but this is also happening on her birthday. I seriously did, and still do, feel so helpless to my best friend. There is nothing anyone can say or do to make the sadness and pain go away. Kris just turned 25 on the 12th of February and he died serving our country. I keep facebook stalking Jen from Colorado because I just want to be there for her and there is nothing I can do really. I am telling all of you this because I really think we need some prayers our way... It is so hard watching her from afar. I don't want to always be the reminder of Kris to ask how she is doing and everything so one day I wrote her a letter and sent it to her to make it be everything I had to say and I wont bring up the event again unless she brings it up first. It is really tough when I know she is hurting so bad.


Please send prayers Jenny's way. I know Kris is looking down on her and giving her strenght becuase she is a tough little cookie. She always has been. As a military wife it hits even harder. When DH and I were just dating Jenny and Kris were my inspiration. I always called Jen for advice or help in times of need when DH was deployed and I know she could use more help. She has a great support system but it will just take time. So please send some prayers her way. Its going to be a long journey ahead....


 


ps- sorry if this was so random, I just wrote as I thought of it so if it doesn't mix well, Sorry!


 


Thanks everyone. I know all of our prayers will be answered! Here is a link to an article about him.

I am so sorry for your friend! That is so tough! Loosing someone is always tough but hopefully he is looking down on her and helping guide her through this tough time. And Thank You to Kris for giving his life to serve our country!

I am so incredibly sorry. I can't even imagine how awful this must be for her, and I'm sure it brings such horrible, unnecessary fear to you and other military wives. Kris's family and your poor friend are in my prayers tonight.

this gives me shivers. My HS best friends husband died a little over a month now and I had no idea how to handle it. (they had only been married since June) I still don't know how to handle it. Like you I don't want to press but I want to make sure she's doing okay. 


From this I've learned that there is no "right" way of handeling grief. The most you can do is continue to be a great, supportive friend. 


Sending prayers your way

Take it from someone who is going through the passing of their parents, if you ever needed to be a friend yo need to do it now, you will not be a bother you will be helping showing that you care and love them in this time of pain and despair. First is unbelief, anger, and then depression. Please if you love your friend don't let her go through this along. You should contact them everyday  saying just checking on you if you need me I am here. Make sure you are there at this point the friend is lost and searching for answers.


I have thought of suicide several time after my mother's passing so I could be with her. Grief is serious and people take it so lightly. So please be there no matter what it takes love on here take her out and DO NOT LET THEM SIT IN THEIR GRIEF!!!!!! I am from Michigan also. I will be praying your friend and both families.

I am soo sorry for your friends lost.  I have chills writing this.  My cousin was based out of Colorado, before he was promoted and transferred to Kansas.  He just left for his 2nd deployment to Afghanastan a few weeks ago and I am soo worried for him. 
It breaks my heart to hear someone lose a son, boyfriend, husband, friend.  My thoughts and prayers go out to you dear friend.


Just be there for her, there is nothing you can do to make her feel better, but knowing that she can lean on you will be important.

Oh that is so rough. I'll definitely pray for her. Just continue being a good friend and being available if she does want to talk. *hugs* Let her know the PW ladies are praying for her.

Thanks everyone. For those that have hear about this in the news, I think we friends have talked about it, and with the story being all over the news for a good 2-3 weeks, which is great for Kris to be remembered, everytime Jen would get done crying or not think about it, she got another phone call or FB message about it. It is really tough on her. I texted her this morning and she seems to be in a good place today.


Thanks for all the prayers and words of comfort. I will continue to look out for her and her family and Kris' family. Please keep praying. I think the prayers last night really did wonders for her today. :)
