This thread isn't about that mormon religion. I'm not mormon myself but I have a friend who is and left a couple of weeks ago. He was a terribly close friend that only had lived a couple of blocks and we would always talk about our problems and do whatever we could to help each other. We had so much in common one of being our love of Disneyland which was all we actually talked about the last time I saw him. He left while I was at Disney World and my last words to him was over the phone at Epcot. I called him several times while there because he wanted to know everything that I was doing there. He actually would always call a lot while I was out of town to see how I was doing....he just always took an interest in my life more so than any other friend. He was just always there for me. I'm not trying to go on too long but I'm just trying to establish how our friendship was.
So he is on his mission and I got my first letter from him and I'm trying to write back but every time I do I start crying. So I'm just wondering if anyone else is dealing with a very close friend being on a mission and how they deal with it.
