After sudden deaths, Facebook friends find solace

Catherine Bullard and Ariel Trocino are both in their twenties.

They knew each other slightly for years as Facebook friends but not much else.

Two years ago, both of their boyfriends died within a few months of each other and their relationship deepened as they figured out how to deal with their sudden losses.
