Beau Solomon's friends are struggling to wrap their minds around what happened to the 20-year-old University of Wisconsin student whose remains were found in Rome's Tiber River Monday morning – four days after the cancer survivor went missing after arriving in Italy for a study-abroad program hours before.
"I can't even begin to grasp that you're gone," writes Rowan McDonnell, one of Solomon's closest friends, in a Facebook posting. "I've never met a person that has been so life changing. The greatest friend that anyone could ask for and I am lucky to have been able to call you my best friend."
