My feelings are with you as you appear to have lost someone very dear to you and are having trouble dealing with it. Your inability to eat suggests that this situation is more than I can answer here. You should seek out counseling to help you overcome this tragedy in your life. Meanwhile retain her friendship as you never know what might develop again.
