What does it matter in the end?
There was a quote I read and I wish I could find it but it went something like..
The world has been around for centuries, you made your mark coming into life, but once you leave it, life will continue the way it was before you came.
I know that it is very argueable but, for someone who doesnt stand out in life it applies to. You said your friend was a person that made everyone smile, well she made her mark on the ones that matter most. You, her friends, and her family. When it comes down to it, life will continue the way it was before she was here and after she left.
Im very sorry to hear she did take her life, bless you and the ones she knew.
