I lost my best friend today.

My ex’s dad was my best friend and like a father to me. Even though we’d split up him and I said we would always be there for each other. Today he went ice fishing and went through the ice on his quad and drowned and I was the one who found him. His family was worried because they couldn’t get hold of him so they asked me to go check on him because I knew where he would be. I went to his shanty and he wasn’t in it. So I started following the tracks of his 4 wheeler until I saw where they stopped. I punched through the layer of ice that had formed and that’s when I saw his body in 10’ of water. He had been in the water for about 4 hours. I can’t get that sight of seeing him down there, knowing there was nothing I could do to help, out of my head. Once they got his body out of the water I held him hoping I could bring him back even though I knew I couldn’t. I’m just so lost right now.

Oh dear, I am so so sorry, this is so traumatic for you, i'm lost for words. I will keep you in my thoughts, i'd advise you to talk to a professional asap as you could be in shock too from what you have seen and witnessed. I'm here if you need me.

Thank you everyone, I just can’t believe this happened. Tomorrow I get to go on the same ice and get his shanty and his truck. Hey it might as well be a suicidal person right? I know it was a bad joke. This life truly hates me, it takes away everything I love. Why can’t it take me, he was so loved and so caring for everyone. Why take him and not me who hates being alive?
