It's never easy.
Yesterday, Jamie Christopher Sangouthai, one of Lamar Odom's best friends passed away from a drug overdose.
Jamie was quite close with Lamar going back to their High School days together. Both men not only shared a long friendship but they worked together professionally as well on some business deals and both had a great love of basketball.

Some of this brotherly love was even on display during the short lived Khloe & Lamar show. Jamie was also known to have been friends with some of the Kardashians for several years as well and was one of Lamar's best men during his televised wedding to Khloe Kardashian.
Sangouthai was 37-years-old when he passed and sources report that he may have died from a heroin overdose.
Shortly after the news broke, Khloe took to twitter to send out her condolences and tweeted:
Her best friend, Malika Haqq, also sent out the picture (above) with the following quote:
"Thru good and bad times life shows us every spirit matters and leaves a print on the hearts of others after they have passed… RIP Jamie Sangouthai #GodHelpUsAll."
No death is easy, and the closer you are to someone, the harder it is. Our hearts go out to the Sangouthai family as well as those affected and wish the best in dealing with this tragic event.
