      Janis,

       

      I am so very sorry for your loss. There was nothing you could have done. Unfortunately, this terrible disease runs it's own course, and little can be done to stop it. Some of us are lucky enough to keep it at bay, and some, despite all of their fighting, lose the battle. Some, like your love, never even have a fighting chance.

      And in much the same way, no one can really help you get over this horrible grief. It will run it's course in it's own way. I know you have a dark hole in your heart right now, and I hope that you can call on wonderful memories of best friend..and that those memories will one day replace this darkness, and sustain you to the point where you can find joy againin your life.

      My deepest sympathies.
