A quote about the loss of a friend by Henry David Thoreau states, "On the death of a friend, we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living, that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend's life also, in our own, to the world." A Mitch Albom quote on the loss of a friend states, "I love you every day. And now I will miss you every day."
