Can you remember some of the things that he did when he helped you cope? Could you use those techniques on yourself, thinking "what would he tell me to do right now if he was here?" or you can call him on the phone and ask for advice or just talk for awhile? You said you would be emailing and such. I know it isn't the same as having him right there, but you will be able to handle this, we will keep you company for the time being.
I know that you will eventually meet new people to help fill that void, but you wont be able to replace him because of that special place that he holds in your heart. You wouldn't even want to I am sure. But give it time, when you least expect it, somebody will come into your life and you will have another friend. That is kind of how life works. In the meantime, keep posting, we are all here for you. I hope that you are having a good night, it is late here, about 1:30 am.
