Dear Abby: Teen, family grasp for help after friend’s suicide

DEAR ABBY: My 15-year-old daughter’s best friend took her life today. My daughter is devastated. As a parent, I don’t know what to do. I’m afraid to go to bed this evening because I want her to fall asleep before me. It hurts not being able to take that pain from your child. I want to hold her in my arms tonight. She needs her space, but I don’t know how to help her. I don’t know how it feels to be so young and lose a best friend by her own hand. What can I do?
